How to apply eyeshadow for night out(smokey eyes) - Smokey Eyes Makeup Tips
Plum, aubergine, eggplant... what is it about the dusky purple shade that conjures up thoughts of fall? Well, whatever the reason, it's time to embrace it -- beauty trends for the upcoming autumn months are all about going plummy with your eyes, lips, and cheeks for a sultry yet sophisticated seasonal look. But before you raise an eyebrow at the thought of your grandmother's purple eyeshadow, you should know that these products are anything but retro-tacky! Update a smoky eye with a color-coordinated Stila eyeshadow quad in Montemarte, finished off with Urban Decay's Ink For Eyes in Empire. The contrasting color works wonders in bringing out the gold flecks in your eyes. And if you're all about the flushed cheeks, take your rosy glow up a notch on the color spectrum with Clinique blush in Plum Gorgeous. Scroll through the slideshow for my favorite plum products!

If you have not yet fallen for the dazzling array of vivid clothing, shoes, bags, belts and sunglasses that are deleriously prevalent this season, the color purple may be what final drags you in. Not the movie, girls... the color! In all of it's seductive mysteriousness, moodiness and glamorous flair. There is a perfect purple for each and every one of you, and this purple belongs however you dare to apply it€“ whether in a dreamy wash of color, a romantic smoky smudge, or a bold streak€“ on your eyelids.Shades of purple, violet and aubergine reigned supreme on the runways at Thakoon, Behnaz Sarafpour, Bottega Veneta, Christian LaCroix, and Valentino- the most dramatic look (and one of my favorites) being the stark ultraviolet halos worn by blue-eyed model Siri TollerÃ¸d, at Behnaz Sarafpour. Sephora.com features a similar look as part of their homage to brightly colored makeup this season. According to Jerrod Blandino, celebrity makeup artist and creator of Too Faced Cosmetics, "Purple shadows make blue eyes look bluer, green eyes look more brilliant, and brown eyes look lighter. This season's purples sizzle with iridescent pigments that add a sexy and futuristic metallic edge."
