    I think if you would feel at all uncomfortable or worried about looking “dated” in purple, then you should stick with more natural colors. I don’t think anyone will really notice if you have matching makeup! It’s more important that the color looks good on *you.*

    I would do your makeup how you like…. you won’t have your bouquet the whole time so I wouldn’t base my look at that.

    You could still do a dramatic look in more natural/dark brown/black and it work with your bouquet just fine =)

    @Ka393: If you put in a smudge of purple meaning you could use the eyeshadow in deep purple as a liner base, then apply a neatural earth toned liner  to leave just a bit under the edge of  the purple eyeshadow it would not be dated since it wont be so noticeable.As a smoky eye it will be pretty.

    I would not use purple over the entire lid ..oh no, definitely may sdate yourself there.


    I know I will have a smoky eye for sure and now flirting with the idea of a speck of purple Smile

    I voted “purple” as long as it wasn’t crazy bright purple–maybe a really subtle purple or like blissflbrde said, like a hint of it somewhere.  I picked it, even though it might sound “matchy matchy” (depending on the shade) and I didn’t like that, I thought I remember that shades of purple make brown eyes pop.  Maybe I’m wrong on that.

    I think purple looks so good on brown eyes, like PP said, as long as it’s not insane madonna in the 80’s bright crazy colors, I think it will be fine.

    I am a Makeup Artist, specializing in bridal, and I once did a wedding party where the bride requested ALL purple!  She would not budge on this.  So I ended up using a pale purple (Beautiful Iris by MAC, love this colour), and a plum on the outer V of her eye. It actually ended up looking great  on her. Something quite like this:


    The trick is to pick a hue of purple that would suit your skin tone.  Brown eyes look gorgeous with purple shadows.  I’d say go with a lid colour that’s neutral, and use a shade of purple in your outer V/crease that would compliment your skin tone.  That way it’s not overpowering, but just enough to have that pop you’re looking for.

    If you are getting your makeup professionally done, always do a trial. This way you can remove things you don’t like, or even just for the sake of trying the purple out and seeing how you will like it.

    I have hazel eyes and love deep plum shadows, it makes my eyes pop like crazy and brings out the green in them. But I also like smokey browns. The browns look better on me when I’m pale, and the plums when I’ve got a bit of a tan/bronze color….

    Just food for thought.
