Choose the right color lavender for your skin tone, hair color and the occasion. Pale- and fair-skinned gals should lean toward lavenders with a hint of pink or silver. Brown-eyed beauties should go for pastels. Intense lilac-lavender makes blue eyes pop, but green and hazel eyes look best with deeper shades of lavender that border on plum.
Prime your lids with a sheer base shadow. For daytime, go with sheer pink or vanilla. At night, a glistening champagne provides a base to which the lavender shadow can adhere. A primer color makes it possible for the lavender color to last through work, school or parties.
Create dimension to your eyes by extending the lavender shadow just past your lash line. Add a darker shade -- try plum or eggplant -- of shadow in your eyelid crease.
Line the outer edge of your lashes with a dark purple liner to complement your lavender shadow. Shades to choose include eggplant or plum. Lining your lash line creates an illusion that your eyes are bigger, making them the focus of your face.
Add mascara in dark brown or black to further define your peepers. False lashes can draw even more attention to your eyes so that the lavender shadow can’t be missed.
