THE COLOR PURPLE

Purple is the color that represents all things royal and splended. Why not leave home dressed like a queen? NYFW gave us a glimpse into fashion's color forecast, predicting subtile, maybe demure lids and lashes. I'll take the color purple, this is a trend that you can work all year long! 

Lavender, plum and violet, are shades of the purple that compliment all skin tones. Purples can be worn as a minimalist single shadow or as a vibrant statement piece.

For a more subdued eye with a flare of color try a soft, shimmering or pale shades of purple. Sweep shadow onto the lid with a short, soft haired brush. Create a subtle crease by blending red based browns or soft grey into the crease of softly along the lash line. Add chocolate brown or navy mascara to the upper lashes for subtle definition.

If you desire a statement eye, select rich and vibrant shades of purple. Use a pearl, pink or purple cream color base throughout the lid to intensify color. Add blend heavy, pigmented greys deep navy and deep black eyes shadows to the crease, use a packing application technique for best results. Apply a liquid eyeliner and 6-8 coats of mascara to the eye for heavy definition.
