Purple Eye Makeup Looks, Tutorials and Application Tips

I have always *loved* getting my makeup done by the pros and this time, I got to meet with Kohl’s National Beauty Expert, Kathy Snider, who has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years, for a makeover. Since I wanted something soft and wearable for the day, Kathy decided to recreate the look from Flirt! Cosmetics’ latest Green Envy Spring 2009 collection on me.

“Green is a great alternative to brown – a color we have been seeing a little too much nowadays,” says Kathy. “It can also make you look more rested by making the whites of your eyes appear whiter.” Why? ‘Cos “green counteracts redness.” So true!

Celeb makeup artist Beau Nelson was right – the ’80s are back! For his A/W 2009 collection, Giorgio Armani created a beautiful collection of 80s-inspired chunky knit cardigans, fitted jackets, tight leggings, pencil skirts, cocktail dresses and more in greys and blacks. And to go with the retro theme, models strutted around in a super tight updo with a bun on one side, strong, purple smoky eyes and fire-engine red lips. Hot!
