  1. Benefit Fancy Pansy
  2. Inglot #440
  3. MAC Digit
  4. Inglot #346
  5. MAC Beautiful Iris

5 Luxurious Eggplant Purple Eyeshadows

Deep, decadent purples with red undertones make me think of eggplants.  They can be a tough beast to master, often because they come in matte finishes, but they’re so worth practicing and perfecting.  They can add so much depth to your look; I love using them as a crease color paired with soft browns, beiges, pinks, and lighter purples.

5 Cool Green Eyeshadows to Love

Not so keen on warm-toned greens, of which there are plentiful? There are certainly cooler-toned green eyeshadows to choose from, and here are five of my favorites. When you’re hunting for a cool-toned green, look for buzz words like blue-green, green-blue, forest, green-teal, teal-green, and gray-green; stay away from buzz words like gold, grass, olive, and khaki.

5 Stunning Chartreuse Eyeshadows

One of my favorite colors to wear on the eyes is chartreuse.  It’s one of those colors I fell madly in love with from the get-go.  I can’t tell you how happy I was when MAC made Lucky Green permanent!  I love pairing chartreuse with deeper greens, blues, and teals.
