Purple eyeshadow with a blue outfit? Really? Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Not necessarily! Take a look at how pretty Kristin Cavallari looked at the launch of her jewelry line 'Emerald Duv' in a blue ruffled dress and bright purple eyeshadow...
Quite a color palette
So, let's get this straight: Kristin's launching her line Emerald Duv, wearing a blue dress and purple eyeshadow... she certainly isn't afraid of mixing her colors!
How come this combination of blue and purple doesn't look strange? It's all about the hues! Kristen has chosen a shimmery shade of lilac with blue undertones to it, and her dress' light blue print acts as a transitional color between her eyeshadow and the main color of the dress.
Let's take a closer look at Kristen's makeup!
Brown eyed gal
Kristen's warm brown eyes are the perfect shade for this lilac eyeshadow. Why? Because brown and purple are opposite each other on the color wheel, which means they look great together.
If you're thinking about giving this look a go, make sure you keep the eyeshadow below the brow bone. The color is bold enough already, and over-application risks you looking clownish.
Bold eyes = natural lips. That's the golden rule. But, that being said, you can still wear a sparkly gloss like Kristen, just make sure it's not too obvious - a subtle shimmer is perfect.
Will you dare to mix your purple and blue now?
