Try Violet Eye Makeup on the Lower Lashes Like Michelle Trachtenberg

Look to Try Now: Michelle Trachtenberg's Violet Eye Makeup

Elizabeth Taylor has long been said to have violet eyes, and you can, too. (Well, not literally, but close.) Last night at Dior's Oscars dinner, Michelle Trachtenberg looked lovely wearing plenty of deep black liner and mascara, with just the subtlest accent of violet on the inner and lower lash lines. Wearing violet this way highlights and brightens the eyes, all while standing out against the intensity of the black surrounding it. This shade also makes brown eyes gleam, makes green eyes pop, and enhances cool tones in blue eyes. Finish this look with a creamy pink cheek and lip color like Michelle, and you have one beautiful makeup palette.

Exactly, aimeeb! I would definitely avoid anything frosty or muted just for those reasons.

It looks nice on her. I think if you choose the right hue it can look great, too purple and you might look like you are back in HS.
