Dark and Dangerous

If you ever look at models, actresses, tv personalities, anybody that is considered beautiful by many, 9 times out of 10, they will have blue eyes. All well and good, but I don't. My eyes are a pretty non-descript hazel colour, that take green or yellow tones depending on the light. My colour palette of choice when it comes to eye make up tends to be either neutrals (eyeshadows), olive/gold or black (eyeliner) and a decent helping of black mascara.

My most recent discovery- purple.

I received a very dark purple coloured liner in a Bare Minerals kit, which I have used once or twice, and liked fine enough, but the liner was better for single solid lines rather than smudging and working in. I aqyured a No7 Kohl pencil on a freebie deal a while back, and feeling inspired to play with something new a couple of weeks back, this is how it ended up.

If you have dark or hazel eyes ladies, give purple a go. This turned out to be great for a afternoon visiting some friends, interesting without being ott.
