ADD PURPLE TO MAKE YOUR EYES POP
Whether you’re applying a full face or just the daily essentials, try incorporating purple mascara to enhance the color of your eyes.
You can go full out purple, but I prefer to apply my black mascara on top so that it looks more natural. Here’s what I do:
- Apply primer for curl – I hate eyelash curlers so I rely on Revlon’s Lash Fantasy
- A thin coat of purple mascara* that doesn’t cover your lashes completely.
- Fill in the gaps with your black mascara and the purple will peek out.
*YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara ($28.50) in Fascinating Violet or Burgundy (which I use alone during fall and winter). Urban Decay makes a pretty purple for $17, but I’ve never used it personally.
Want more? Line your eyes with a raisin or deep purple pencil/powder.
You’ll be able to tell the difference especially when the light hits your eyes during the daytime. Onlookers probably won’t notice consciously, but they’ll be drawn to gaze a little longer.
