Midnight Burgundy Purple Smokey Eye

Simple smokey eyes, using Sweetscents eyeshadow, Midnight Burgundy.
Applied wet, blended out with white eyeshadow.
No eye countour this time. 

The shape is rounded, but slightly blended out to a defined V.
I had such a hard time trying to catch the true beauty of this eyeshadow on photos.

Dark purple I am a total sucker for :) When I'm browsing for make-up I always gravitate to purples and plums. For a dark smokey eye, I prefer it over

And what is your favourite color to substitute black for a smokey look?

I love the look you've gone for and I try to opt for colours other than black for a smokey eye look as much as possible - I'll usually go for greys or greens cos they work with my eye colour but still really stand out :)
