Now that spring is just around the corner, there’s no better time to add to your eyeshadow collection to ensure that you have the perfect colors on hand for the upcoming season! One hue that’s always in style once spring arrives is purple. Whether you love deep violet or lavender, there are a few ways you can make sure you apply purple eyeshadow flawlessly onto your lids every time.

1. Choose shades that work
While it’s not the most outrageous color you could wear, Stylelist recommends exercising caution when it comes to choosing a purple tone for your eyes. Candy colors that look more suited for a little girl’s beauty pageant should be avoided at all costs.

2. Go neutral elsewhere
When working around the rest of your face after applying purple to your eyelids, go neutral. A muted lipstick, blush and eyeliner can help prevent your look from becoming too overwhelming.

3. Complement your eyes!
Whether you have a purple hair clip or purple nail polish, use them to complement the color of your makeup. Doing so can help you create a more cohesive look.

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
