Makeup Tutorial: Deep Plum Eyes

Published on December 21, 2010 by   ·   10 Comments Pin It

Glam goddess Annabella Asvik of serves up smoky eyes in a new way.


Inspired by the Carolina Herrera Fall/Winter 2010 runway makeup, we created this wild vixen look with non-toxic, eco, and cruelty-free Sante cosmetics. You can buy the shades at

1. Apply a deep brown eyeliner under the lower lid in lashes towards the outer eyelashes.

2. Apply bronze eyeliner inside lower lids

3. Apply aubergine eyeshadow under lower lashes and all over eyelids into the crease.

4. Apply a soft pink eyeshadow under the brow bone and blend into the aubergine Shadow. If you don’t have a pink shadow, you can use your blush.

5. Apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and work up toward the hairline.

4. Add rose lipgloss.

Ed’s note: If you want your eyeshadow to look dewy and glossy, add a dab of lip balm or light colored lipstick or gloss on top of your shadow. Only a teensy bit, or it will cause the shadow to run more than you’d want.

    Any good natural, vegan mascaras out there? I give up! I think I have tried them all and they are terrible! Has anyone found a good brand?

  3. Chloé Jo says:

    Diane – Thanks for the request! We will have a blog about vegan mascaras in 2011! Look out for it.

  4. Diane L says:

    Diane-I’ve been vegan for 13 yrs and have tried all the brands too. Lavera is hands down the best!!! You can get in in black, brown or blue. I have oily skin and it’s the only kind that doesn’t run down my face, even in the hot humid Chicago summers.

  7. Diane L says:

    Thanks Ryan! I recently came across this brand at Wholefoods, will give it a try.

    Ecco Bella has palm oil/wax in some of their items. Palm oil production is driving two types of orangutans to extinction. I hope they will switch to another oil as I’d like to try their tinted moisturizers and mascaras. For now, I just stick with the products that don’t contain palm oil.

    • Darlene says:

      We use very little palm oil in our natural beauty products, preferring coconut and safflower oils among others. And we don’t buy the palm oil directly, we get a derivative of it in the form of isopropyl palmitate or palmitic acid which is a fractionated form of palm oil. Nevertheless, we have asked our suppliers to comply with sustainable practices. In addition, we support Greenpeace’s efforts to get Sinar Mas and other companies to comply. I feel confident that in the near future, sustainable palm oil will be the norm. Sally Malanga CEO

    Hi Nancy! It’s Annabella, the blogger in the video (who is getting her makeup done)! The EccoBella founder is a big animal lover, so I’ll forward this to them and ask if they are looking to phase this out.
