Favorite Ultra Violet Makeup

This post was requested through my Twitter poll. You can follow me on Twitter @MakeupMatters1.

Purple is my favorite color. I've even been known to drive a purple car back in the day. Sifting through my collection,  I found a bunch of purple products to choose from. For this post I really tried to parse out those that fit the actual Pantone Color of the year, Ultra Violet.

Here are some of my favorites:

From the Urban Decay Electric Palette, the pressed pigment Urban is hands down my favorite. 

Urban Decay really knows how to do Ultra Violet right! Their eyeshadow in Psychadellic Sister has been a long standing favorite of mine. I keep it in my "purple palette," which I assembled using the Urban Decay create your own six-pan palette.

Another favorite from Urban Decay is their 24/7 Glide On Eyeshadow Pencil in the color Delinquent.  I often apply them to the eye solo or as a base under powder eyeshadow.  These are water proof and set quickly, so I recommend blending immediately after application. 

If you are looking for Ultra Violet at the drugstore, I got ya covered. Sleek's Vintage Romance palette is super pigmented and has a beautiful eyeshadow in this trendy hue. 

We all know that no blog post of mine is complete without mentioning brushes. These Ultra Violet-tipped beauties are from the cruelty-free and vegan makeup brush brand Furless Cosmetics. They are super soft and high quality in addition to being fabulous to look at.  These brushes are a great way to add a pop of color to your makeup table.

I thought it would be fun to create an Ultra Violet inspired makeup look to go along with this post. I used Makeup Geek Prom Night eyeshadow, along with the Sleek shadow above, and Urban Decay's Urban from the Electric Palette. I tried it first with a nude lip, and then popped on Milani's liquid lip in Violet Addict for a more vibrant look. 

I hope you enjoyed this look at my favorite Ultra Violet products. What are yours?
