I agree the purple looks “Promish” but I think it would look much more sophisticated if you toned down the purple and just had a subtle shade or darker shades of it.

BROWN!!! No question about it.  So much more elegant and flattering.  I love purple eye shaddow but if you do it then you have to be VERY careful not to have too much blush or lip color.  I agree that the purple looks too “promish.” The brown is gorgeous!

I think plum shadow with the blush and lipstick from the 2nd pic would be gorgeous.

Dior makes a shadow called Amber Plum that’s a neutral purple with some gold in it.  I think it would be perfect on you.

I usually wear mac makeup but maybelline has a really pretty purple called amethyst. Whenever I wear it I get compliments. Maybe try that if you want to go with purples

The browns look gorgeous & really bring out your eyes. Plus looks a ton more natural, which I prefer. So I guess it’s up to personal preference because both are pretty.

I think a burgundy/plum eyeshadow with less pink more coral/natural lips and cheeks would look amazing. It’d be a little more dramatic but still natural.
