Those Violet Eyes

Picture 658.pngTotally loving Estee Lauder’s new Sumptuous Mascara in Extreme Violet. We may not have the violet eyes of the late great Liz Taylor, but that’s not stopping us from channeling her spirit every time we blink with rich purple eyelashes that are softer than basic black, but stronger than boring brown.

This color looks great with brown eyes–the outer rim of the iris has a lot of purple in it–but really makes green eyes pop. The greatness of this color lies in its smoky subtlety. It’s such a sophisticated tone that it works on any age, without looking garish or contrived.

Wear with sooty eyeshadow in a deep eggplant or granite, and let the lashes add the touch of color. You’ll love it.
