I like all colours of eyeshadow and pretty much wear them all. I love colour so I tend not to shy away from anything, there's nothing too bright or too bold. Purple however is not one I reach for very often. Some people shy away for the fear of looking like you've been punched about the place and perhaps that has played into it a little. Any way after seeing Natalya post a lovely purple tutorial (http://filthygorgeousmakeup.blogspot.com/2009/09/new-youtube-series-best-colours-for.html) I thought I would give this colour a bit of attention. Overall I'm quite happy with the look. It's light enough to wear in the day and not look too OTT and I could perhaps do a night version (in fact I might try a darker night look soon). Plus it gave me an excuse to use my Kat Von D palette which I adore. So perhaps I will have to weave a bit of purple into my make up.
So what colours do you stay away from and why?
