I'm with Faye here, although I generally like blue eyes against a colored face, some judges do not and may actually hold them against the horse. I showed a QH mare locally who had blue eyes and would be questioned about her breed often. Some judges would insist she had to be paint, a breeding stock one, and would place us lower thinking she wasn't ideal/I was trying to lie.
Yes, purple shampoo will have similar whitening effects on the mane as the body, be careful not to leave it in too long. I'm not familiar with minis but for halter classes I would think the mane would need to be tamed up out of view of the neck so the judge can see conformation better.
