Color Wheel: Lovely Lady

Use your feminine wiles and dazzle a crowd in a smattering of lilac and mauve, like the LOVELY LADY you are.

With an eyeshadow brush, apply a light, slightly iridescent opal all over the lid. In the middle third of the lid, lightly pat on a subdued pinky-mauve shade with a fluffy brush. On the outer third of the lid, blend a toned-down violet-mauve with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Using a tapered crease brush, lightly blend the color into the crease Define the crease with a small, tapered crease brush and tap a rich, violet-berry shade into the crease to add depth. Highlight the brow bone with a soft, lightly pinked highlighter shade, and then line upper/lower lash line (as desired) with dark shade of chocolate brown. For complementing cheeks, try slightly cool-toned pink cheeks then dusting a light touch of pink or lilac shimmer to highlight. Finish the look with lip colors in cool and warm pinks, pinky-purples, fuchsias, berries, or vampy shades for best results.
