I usually stick to browns and blacks for eye make up, especially on office days - very brown/nude colours.
But I read recently that purple works great with green eyes (my eye colour) so ordered a purple shadow from iherb. Since today is a work-from-home day I put a green glitter eye lner on my bottom lash line, and the purple shadow (not the greatest quality unfortunately - I've gotten used to the good quality of Mellow) on my lids.
And behold, it looks great, and nowhere near as OTT as I thought! I even got a couple of compliments at a meeting in town this avo.
So I'm going to experiment with more colour - t'is Spring after all. What's the boldest colours others have worn?

Haha most bright look I've done is putting the whole rainbow on my eye. Good on you for embracing the bold colors.

That sounds soooo nice the purple and green!  I am all for bold.  I think the brightest I have tried is for a dare I put on here to get people to try their least fave colours.  I used yellow eyeshadow and orange lipstick.  It actually made me hate yellow a little less.  I wonder if my selfie of the completed look is still on here.
