'Go There' Wednesdays: Violet-Blue Eyeliner

Comments
solangepurple_article.jpg

One of this season's hottest trends is bold, colorful eyeshadow (think "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"-era Whitney Houston). Admittedly, Crayola-striped eyes are a bit extreme for day, but there are ways to rock a pop of color without looking like Rainbow Brite. Take a cue from Solange Knowles, and instead of applying a loud shade all over your lid, simply trace it along your top and bottom lashlines with a skinny eyeliner brush... We're really feeling Solange's violet-blue eyeshadow! Not only is the shade gorgeous on brown skin, blue-toned eyeshadow makes the whites of the eyes look brighter (makeup artists use this trick backstage at fashion shows to make tired, hungover models look wide-awake). Try Yves Saint Laurent 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes in Riviera ($56) -- it comes with the prettiest range of blue/violet shades, including a slate blue shimmer, violet shimmer, matte teal, royal blue and matte navy.
