Now that it's April, we can consider ourselves fully immersed in pastel season. Right now, people are into having fun with their makeup again — there have been lots of great eye moments in editorials and on the runways. Personally, purple is a favorite. It looks great on all eye colors, and it's extremely versatile on most skin tones.
The thing about pulling off bright or bolder colors on the eyes is to keep them modern — it's much cooler to keep it one color and focus on your technique than to do gradations of color for a smoky eye. With this look specifically, I wanted a hazy, soft-focused oval shape to play up the airy, gentle atmosphere of springtime. It kind of bounces off our model Chaun's eyes.
Plan on keeping the rest of the face as clean as possible in order to let your eyes stand out. It's fun to maintain a soft and natural look with that element of surprise.
