In this look I went for a deep blue-purple. The star of the show is NYX Purple eyeshadow (from the trio) which is a stunning purple with a beautiful blue duochrome. I applied it in traditional asian-eyelid fashion, below the "crease," to create a pop of color. This way of wearing brights really makes them more wearable and practical in my experience than pulling the color higher up in the crease.

This is one of the better NYX trios (I recommend usually only going for singles). I used Purple and Deep Purple in this look, though Prune is beautiful too. Purple is a violet purple with a blue duochrome, it has a slight sheen finish but is not really shimmery or frosty. I like packing Purple onto the center of my lid to brighten the look. Deep Purple is a darker purple that is slightly frosty. I like using this to deepen the outer 1/3 of my lid. I also used NYX Black to darken the outer V.
