I had heard several times that purple was a beautiful colour for green eyes, but had never actually tried it out. I considered this be a good opportunity to have a go and see whether it really did look lovely or whether it ended up making me look like some pathetic clown.
The instructions listed just said: Use a shimmering lilac over the lid and then a darker colour in the outer corners of the eye. It suggested to use a black liquid liner but I didn't do that. I think it would have looked lovely but it was a bit too dramatic since I wanted it to go with a casual look.

It looks no different does it?! Argh! I did enjoy this challenge but I am not all convinced with the results. It didn't really turn out as hoped. I did pack on the colour the second time, but I think the shadows either just are not pigmented enough, the camera doesn't pick it up or I am just terrible at this sort of thing...I think a combination of all three!
