A Colourful Summer Eye Look

Summer is the perfect opportunity to start wearing more colour within your makeup. The usual colours are warm, fresh and bright, but with this look I went for a completely different vibe – purple and orange.

Now yes, orange is a pretty warm and bright colour, but mixed with the cool tones of a lilac purple and pink haze – it creates a gorgeous eye look perfect for those hot summer nights.

I’ve paired this with a plain glossy lip, but it would look stunning with a nude or even a pale pink lip look – it’s definitely a look you could experiment further with.

To see how to recreate this look, everything’s listed below. Enjoy!
