ADD PURPLE TO MAKE YOUR EYES POP

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:

  1. Apply primer for curl – I hate eyelash curlers so I rely on Revlon’s Lash Fantasy
  2. A thin coat of purple mascara* that doesn’t cover your lashes completely.
  3. 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.
