Purple October

Remember the rock classic “Smoke on the Water” by Deep Purple?

That song just may have been playing in the back of the minds behind the runway beauty at New York Fashion week Fall/Winter 09 collections.

For all of you who were lucky enough to attend NYFW last February you may be well aware of the trends for Fall 09, those who weren’t, prepare yourself for a smokey, deep purple eye contoured to pop out and get you noticed.

Some of our favorites are…

Charlotte Tilbury for Jill Stuart. Charlotte uses rich hues in the crease and soft purples in the brow to create this soft, sexy look.

Lucia Pieroni for Zac Posen. Lucia was inspired by Tim Burton’s creepy doll-like characters and uses shades of purple to dramatize the eye.

To re-create these looks we suggest…

M.A.C. Cosmetics eye shadow in Blackberry or Nocturnelle to create that dark smokey eye.

Shu Uemura’s drawing pencil in me purple 10 to line those sparkling peepers.

Throw on the rock records this fall and embrace the purple haze.
