Bionic’s Purple Eyeshadow Look

by Bionic Beauty on 25.Mar.2008 · 7 comments

This look arose from me just wanting to have a little fun with some eyeshadow colors I had laying around. Since I had done a light purple natural look recently, I thought I would pump this version up a bit.

The makeup I used:

Bionic Beauty's purple eye look

  • Revlon’s Creme shadow quad in Not Just Nudes
  • Milani’s Runway Eyes palette in Couture in Purples
  • Ferro Cosmetics’ Rose Crystal Mineral Veil

I started by priming my eyelid with the peachy glimmer cream shadow (from Revlon’s Not Just Nudes quad). I applied this cream shadow across my entire lid and up past the crease.

Then (reference the photo below for numbers) I placed:
1. Ferro’s Rose Crystal Mineral Veil as a highlighter across my browbone. This product is meant for your face and all-over color and it really performs as an eye highlighter.
2. I applied the second to lightest shade (second from top) of Milani’s Runway Eyes palette on my entire eyelid.
3. In the outer corner of my eye, I applied the middle purple shade (the broken strip in my palette) from Milani, with a soft and small shadow brush. Try to be precise in the corner. If you have extra shadow on your brush, sweep it across the crease of your eye for a little depth.
-Blend, baby, blend-
4. To line your eye, use the darkest (bottom) purple shade from Milani and a liner brush. Line along your upper lash line and ‘press’ the shadow into your skin slightly (this helps it adhere and not fall out). I lined my bottom lash line as well, but this step is optional.
-Finish with a coat of your favorite mascara.-

Hey Doll, Great look:)

That’s why I didn’t buy one of those Milani shadows…I was afraid it was going to break!

Thanks Denise! Yeah, I love the shadows and the color payoff, but they break pretty darn easy- now I chase them around the pans!

Pretty! I love purple but often shy away from it because it makes me look like I got punched in the face. I only go with it if I have the time to spend perfecting it.

I wear purple eyeshadow all the time!

This looks really pretty on you! I have never seen these Milani eyeshadows before acept for in your posts… They look so pretty!

I love purple eyeshadow and liner – it makes my eyes look more green and less brown.

Thank you for the instructions! I love these posts.

Thanks Lydia! :) The purples are really starting to grow on me. It’s “almost a neutral but not quite”. Just the perfect amount of pop.
Milani’s shadows are grand…love them all, the stripes are really nice with all the colors, I just wish they weren’t so fragile. :)

Nice looking purple! I need to try purples out. Milani’s Runway Eyes got my legs walking to the mall.
