Lovely Lilac Eyes
Published Jan 25, 2012
Not just for kings and queens, royal purple was a huge trend for fall. But this spring, lighten your mood—and your eye makeup—with a lilac version of the elegant hue. Whether you pair a lavender tone with a flick of gold liner or opt for a seductive amethyst smoky eye, these three Beauties demonstrate how this gorgeous color can work on all skin tones!
Don't be afraid to mix your purple shadow with warmer hues. We love how Catherine paired a light, shimmery lilac shadow with a hit of copper-toned liner. The two contrasting colors look like rays of light in a fading sunset and highlight her blue eyes.

Matte amethyst shadow pops on darker complexions, as the rich tones work together to create a vibrant display of color. To achieve Ursula’s perfect line, place a piece of tape from the outer corner of your eye to the end of your brow and apply your shadow as normal. When you're done, just peel off the tape to reveal a perfectly straight line!

Blend a shimmering lavender gray shadow across your brow bone and your lower lash line for a feminine highlight to a blue violet smoky eye. This icy pastel look injects a fresh dose of spring into your everyday look and is a great flirty option for date night. Just remember not to overwhelm your face with color and keep your lips simple with a peachy nude gloss or lipstick.
