Makeup Wars Favorite Purple Eyeshadows

Happy Makeup Wars Monday! This time we’re sharing our favorite purple eyeshadows. It’s no secret that I love purple eyeshadow. I was ecstatic when we decided to share purple eyeshadows. I own a lot of purple eyeshadow so it was hard to narrow it down to my favorites.

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, Darling Girl Glitter Glue, Too Faced Shadow Insurance

When it comes to applying eyeshadows, I always recommend using an eyeshadow primer. If you’re using really sparkly or duochrome shades, you need something like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girl Glitter Glue or e.l.f. Studio Makeup Mist & Set (great cruelty free dupe for MAC Fix+) to help your colors shine. For glitters, try something like Violet Voss Secret Weapon or Clearly Liquid Glitter Base. For more tips check out my Best Ways to Apply Loose Eyeshadow and Best Ways to Use e.l.f. Studio Makeup Mist & Set.

Sugarpill is known for super pigmented, quality eyeshadows and their purples are no exception. Most, but not all, of their eyeshadows are vegan.

Freakshow, Frigid, Fishnet, Omen, Urban, Asphyxia

Urban Decay has a lot of purple eyeshadows. I first fell in love with their deluxe shadows and still reach for them on a regular basis. Surprisingly, none of the new purple shades from Urban Decay are vegan and I’m unsure of the old ones. UD has a lot of vegan teal shades though.

Cuddlefish, Because Cats, Mystical Hedgehog, Snowboarding – at an angle

Fyrinnae has so many amazing purples it took me over a half hour to decide on which ones to show you. I made sure to choose shades that are still available. And of course, all of Fyrinnae’s eyeshadows are vegan.
