Bored with your smoky eye? Try a deep purple look

Who doesn’t love a smoky eye? It can be built up for a night out but easily worn during the day with the right shades. But after the thousandth time of doing the same smoky eye, of course you want a change! Purple, while a strong color, is a fun, funky alternative to the typical gray or brown smoky eye.
Purple is also surprisingly neutral. It brings out the golden flecks of brown eyes and complements blue eyes beautifully. Plus, when you use the right combination of shades, purple can work with many outfits and almost any event. Try out different combinations to see what works best for you, and embrace the wild side.
