Is there a look better suited to party season than a smokey eye? We’re finding it pretty hard to find a more versatile one and thanks to the incredible assortment of new eyeshadow palettes  popping up in our beauty halls as of late, experimenting with both colour and finish has never been easier. Knowing where to start though can be a tad overwhelming however, makeup artist extraordinaire Lisa Eldridge has created the perfect helping hand courtesy of her new purple smokey eye makeup tutorial.

Filmed with supermodel Natasha Poly, the video provides ample inspiration for creating a multi-dimensional finish that gently nudges you outside your smokey eye comfort zone. Combining bright purples with lavender, mink and more, it serves as a masterclass in making eyes pop and how to apply the rest of your makeup so that it complements the colour palette. It’s one of our favourites yet.
