I always hear that purple is good for green eyes. So, I've been on a mission to refine my makeup style and find makeup shades that say "look at my eyes" not "hey, look at all the crazy colors I have on my eyelid". I guess I'm maturing a bit out of my goth/punk look and just want something that is flattering and not boring brown. Not crazy bright or super dark purple with glitter everywhere either!
The problem is: the majority of purples are blue based. If you are warm toned this can look a bit odd. My eyes are bluish-green with gold in the center...but wearing the proper colors can really make the green pop and become the dominant shade.
I've experimented a lot over the years and I'm going to say that Hepcat is one of my favorite purples/violets. It's on the verge of purple converting to a plum/cranberry shade, not too red and not too bluish purple. Not too dark, not too light and is a unique color that you won't find in a drugstore.
My favorite way to apply this is just all over my lid with no other colors. It really brightens up my eyes and is a simple way to make them pop. It's still a fun, edgy color that I feel safe wearing to work. I get compliments whenever I wear it and it lasts all day even without primer which is nice because I think that if you are paying $15+ for a single eyeshadow, it should not require a primer to achieve a good look. Definitely worth the money and I will repurchase!
