The Colour Purple

Me to my hair: Dear hair, please behave yourself.

My hair: Bah. I’ve a mind of my mind own, deal with it!

This is almost a daily ritual when I am getting ready. I can easily write a tome about so many occasions I’ve been late only because I was trying in vain to tame my perpetually rebellious curly/wavy hair. But, now I’ve found a great cheat-sheet to deviate the attention from my hair to some where else–my eyes lined with a nice shade of purple.

I am not sure where the fashion mags stand on this colour but for me it is a favourite colour to ring in the spring and summer season. It is fun, hypnotic with a bit of glamour thrown in. Purple liners can instantly add more oomph to any look and even be a conversation starter. What’s more? It perfectly embodies the free-spirit of spring and summer. Now, lets get going.

You can start with either applying a good primer or going naked. Next, apply a subtle eye-shadow like the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Taupe. The warm tone gives a shimmery effect. I am using the Max Factor Colour X-pert Waterproof eye liner in Lilac.

Measuring from the outer corner of your lower lid, make a ā€œVā€ which extends to top of the eye lid. Extend this line till the inner corner. Fill the colour slowly between the lines.

Complete the look by lining the lower lid with Maybelline Eye Studio Master Kohl Liner Deep Purple. Finish with a good swipe of mascara like Maybelline’s Colossal mascara.

Et Voila, You are now ready to rock the town.

Do you have any such beauty cheats? And how do you like to play with colour purple? I would love to hear your thoughts.
