Thursday, August 30, 2012 Lessons From The Pros: Violet Femme
Stacey’s secret eye tip #73: ”Believe it or not, violet is a great neutral for the eye. A touch of the striking hue will do WONDERS for your everyday look, as it instantly brightens and enhances any eye color. My go-to duo is Marie-Galante from Nars. Just a sweep of this iridescent orchid and midnight blue will make you go cross-eyed with amazement. For a more delicate approach, I love to brush Yves Saint Laurent’s Volume Effet Faux Cils in Fascinating Violet on my lashes. If you saturate your lashes and skip out on the liner and eyeshadow, it looks impossibly modern and intoxicating.” To get inspired, here are a few of our favorite on-and-off the runway looks.
