VIOLET EYES

"This look is so dramatic but still soft and pretty," Guilis says of the monochromatic lilac lids so loved at Rebecchi last season. To make the look your own, apply a purple duochrome pigment such as Nyx Cosmetics Loose Pearl Eye Shadow in True Purple Pearl (3) from lash line to the edge of the brow. "To give the shadow a clean line at the corners, use a Q-Tip to clean up the edge at a 45-degree angle," Guilis suggests. Finish lips with a balm for moisture and shine (Yes to Blueberries Blueberry Naturally Smooth Lip Balm, 1). Keep the apples of the cheeks color-free and let the eyes shine by buffing cheeks in a golden tone of bronze (Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tiki, 2).
