A tide has shifted. Tables have turned. Things have changed. Can you feel it? We’re FINALLY ushering warm tones out the door! I’m not sure if it’s the changing of the seasons or the cooling of the weather or what, but I’m taking these cool tones and running with them. Viva la cool tones! And when it comes to cool tones, purple is one of the easiest to incorporate into your look. If you’re feeling more adventurous, check out my post on blue eyeshadow. But for now, let’s get a little more romantic. Filled with shades of pink and purple, the Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette is so enchanting.
I love the way you can take these colors and create a range of looks from innocent pink romance to a bold rocker glam purple and everything in-between. Another thing I love about the Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette is its price. At $27, it’s a lot less expensive then other big name palettes. Plus, I feel like the more defined color palettes leave less unused shades, and therefore less waste after you use up all of your favorites. If you’re looking for purple eyeshadows, what’s the point of buying a palette that also includes oranges and greens? Side note – this palette comes in 10 other colors too. That way you can get your blue, orange, red, neutral, and bold fix!
Ok, so it wasn’t until I started writing this post that I realized the Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsession Palette eyeshadow colors aren’t named. So, for the sake of this post, I’m going to number them. 1 on the top left, 9 on the bottom right. Just like on a telephone. Although, most of us don’t really use phones for that anymore, so just humor me, I guess.
For my anniversary post look (above) I used 8 on my lid, 7 in my crease, and 3 in the outer corner.
For this bold purple rocker look, I used 3 on my lid and crease, 1 on my lid, and 4 in the tight crease.
Another great primarily purple option would be 5 on the lid, 6 in the corner, and 4 in the outer corner.
