Get The Look: Make A Statement In Purple

Purple makes a dramatic statement: here's how to get the look.


  • Your No7 Advisor will recommend your most suitable skincare regime, and find your perfect foundation with No7’s innovative Foundation Match Made Service.
  • Oily skin? Apply a light dusting of powder over the t-zone to stop shine and set foundation
  • Achieve a flawless application using the No7 Foundation Brush (€17.00) starting in the middle of your face, working outwards, followed by a small amount of No7 Instant Radiance Concealer (€16.95) under your eyes to give a fresh look

  • Using your ring finger, apply No7 Stay Perfect Eye Base (€9.25) over your eyelids to lock in colour. Sweep the lightest pearl shade from No7 Stay Perfect Eye Shadow Quad in Purple Haze (€13.75) all over your eyelids and up to the brow bone
  • Apply the middle purple shade onto your lower lid, then softly blend the deepest purple shade along the outer edge of your eyelid to create a smoky look.
  • Add a soft line of No7 Stay Perfect Metallic Eyes pencil in Purple (€8.50) to your top lash line.
  • Finish off the eyes by applying plenty of mascara to your top and bottom lashes – we recommend No7 Extreme Length Mascara (€16.25) for extra volume.

Lips & finishing touches

  • Apply No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Glam (€12.25)  to your lips. Use a lip brush to give a more precise application.
  • Smile and apply a small amount of No7 Natural Blush Tint Powder in Soft Damson (€10.50) to your cheekbones.
  • Compliment the look with No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Blackcurrant (€8.00)
