It’s time for another make up masterclass with our resident beauty curator, the lovely Polina Berdos. This week she shows us how to perfect purple eye makeup for Spring. Over to you Polina…


“Purple is intriguing. Purple is magical. Purple is distinctive. I adore purple and deep plummy colors, I find them so elegant, even royal. It’s a great colour for eye shadow because it complements most skin tones and eye colors. And to top it all off, ‘Radiant Orchid’ is the colour of the year!


There are two different shades of purple. Violet is a pretty pastel shade with more blue in it. Radiant Orchid is a bright, bold blend of fuchsia, purple, and pink. Both are very pretty and versatile.The combination of these shades is such a gorgeous look for spring… So let’s get straight into the makeup tutorial.

Alright, so I created this purple look using my Urban Decay “Smoked” Palette and a violet mineral eyeshadow “Frozen Angel” from Neve Cosmetics.

I mixed a deep purple eyeshadow with violet and I absolutely love the way it turned out. Don’t forget to line your eyes. Of course, this step is optional but it will make your makeup more dramatic.


I added a few coats of mascara to my lashes and applied my false accent lashes from Ardell to create a cat eye shape. Don’t be afraid to try this awesome look because it’s not as complicated as it looks. With some practice and experiments, it gets neater and tidier.


As always, you can find the products that I used and some similar products in my Shopcade list“. Polina x
