Beauty Marked! Versatile Violet Eye Shadows

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It was such fun to see all of the violet, purple and lavender eye shadows you found. I know that the colors can often seem garish in their pots, but if you apply with the right makeup brush, they'll look beautiful on the eyes. Whether you choose a burst of bright color or a subtle smoky eye, violet is a great color for easing into fall.

Let's move on to your picks, shall we? There were tons of great ones, but I liked
Flutterpie's suggestion, an Anna Sui shadow that can double as an eyeliner. And Sandinmytoes likes Mally Beauty City Chick Smokey Eye Kit—a great choice for brown-eyed girls. To view everyone's favorites, just browse through this widget. If you see one you like, click to find out more!

***Laura Geller, typo. Have to add that MAC eyeshadows are fantastic as well.

I looooooove purple eyeshadow. I have a duo by L'Oreal and a quad by Rimmel that I love... although I am lusting after the Laura Gella Baked Marble ones!

I'm really not a purple person, but some of these are really pretty... maybe I'll actually try them.
