Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm here to answer your question how do I mix green and purple eye shadow. Well depending on the look you're going for, I wouldn't advice mixing the two colors together to making a new color because it would read almost a brown. But you can mix them together and depending on the shade you want to use is depending on the look that you want to achieve. So we're going to go in with some actually brighter colors to make this a more fun festival so maybe this is a little more costume inspired. I'm going in with a green cream. The cream isn't too vibrant but it will be a good base and a nice contrast with the purple powder that we use. And I'm starting with the green on the inside of the eye. I like the lighter colors on the inside and the darker colors on the outside. And the green is just going to be a little brighter than the purple. And so we're really just blending in, dispersing the cream. We don't want it to be too thick because we don't want it to crease up off the bat. So really just blending that out. Doing the same to the other side. If you want it to be a more long lasting application, definitely do a green powder over the cream. Always recommended to put powders over anything if you want a long lasting application. After we have that, we're going to go in with a purple shadow on to the outside of the eyes. It's just a lilac purple, nothing too pigmented or intense. And I'm also blending it into the green so they overlap in some areas. Just kind of marbling them together. There's no definitive start and stopping point it's really just an artistic eye. Just marry the two colors together giving it a nice interesting look. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how you can mix green and purple eye shadow.
