This look perfectly reflects the hazy purple sky of the desert at dusk, and I’m in love with these violet shades for fall. The rich Amethyst matte, combined with the shimmering pearls and duo-chrome topper creates a light shifting effect that makes this look so unique.

Recreate the look: Use Amethyst all over the lid as a base and blend up into the crease. Intensify the crease using Oud and smoke it out in the inner and outer corners. Lightly blend Royal into the lid and then dab Twilight all over with your finger to maximize shine.

I’m obsessed with the shade Eden, it was one of the first colors that I created, and it makes the perfect base for so many looks, as well as looking gorgeous just by itself. This amber toned look is sultry and powerful and has such a sophisticated tone to it, while the glitter shade Cosmo gives it a vibrant finish.

Recreate the look: Use Eden as a canvas all over your lid all the way to meet the brow. Use Amber in the crease, winging it out towards the outer edge of the eye. Pat Celestial all over the eye with your finger for maximum shine, and use a brush to blend the outer edges. Add drama with Cosmo, using a stiff eyeliner brush, dip it gently into the pure, ready-to-wear glitter formula and dab across your lash line.

Scarlet Siren

This is like the ultimate boss look! The vibrant siennas and scarlets are intensified by the sand-toned base and rich mahogany liner and combine to create a really powerful, seductive statement eye that is perfect for night’s out and events.

Recreate the look: Prep the whole lid up to the brow with Desert Sand, then mix Blazing and Amber for the crease and smoke out into a wing shape. Intensify the lid with a layer of shimmering Saffron and pack along the lower lash line. Dab a thin eyeliner brush into Oud and apply it as an eyeliner along your upper lash line, finishing with a subtle wing.
