Learn how to make a royal and classic color pretty and wearable for everyone, every day.

Royal glamour

The easiest way to make the eyes sparkle, literally, is by adding shimmer and glitter on the lids. Dab on purple pigments atop your neutral base or bare eye for a glamorous yet subtle take on this bright-hued trend.

Washed out

If full-on eggplant is too audacious for you, opt for a muted variation of this regal tone. Pastel or lavender are pretty on the lids and complement brown eyes, too. A holographic purple-tinted highlighter also does wonders for all skin tones, whether cold or warm. Try Becca Cosmetics Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector, and apply on the high points of your face.

Purple kiss

Purple is a universally flattering hue, especially when worn on the lips. A luscious candy-colored or a vampy aubergine lippie brightens up the complexion, as it neutralizes yellow undertones.

Regal stare

For every day, switch from browns to a shade you like. Fully rimmed eyes in this ornate hue are both subtle and statement-making, turning your day-to-night style into a fresher, more updated look without going overboard. For starters, pick up a purple eyeliner or mascara (NARS Audacious Mascara in Park City) for an instant beauty update. Always match this color with a neutral lip.
