It's All About The Eyes: from Magazines to Your Makeup Box!

This picture from a July editorial in the Japanese Vogue sent me into a purple frenzy... not that I could ever reproduce this amazing makeup but I had a sudden need craving for purple eyeshadow. Whooosh... I added it to my wish list!

Ombre Magnétique - Eyeshadow from Lancôme ($25) - this shade named "Cherry Chérie" is a deep sparkly plum, I love it. I've been using Lancôme eyeshadows for the longest time: I remember stealing my mom's when I was a teenager. They always had shades that would show on black skin and in the 90's it wasn't so common.

I think this gold  YSL cream eyeshadow will complete this look very nicely - Fard Lumière Aquarésistant ($35) -  No5  Golden Sands.

In Marie-Claire, the green eyeshadow maybe a tad over the top but it's freaking amazing!
MAC has a couple of similar shades in their Dare to Wear Collection  like the Sassy Green shade - but it's matte.

The MAC "Partylicious" pigment from the Alice+Olivia collection ($23.50) is more in keeping with this look eventhough it's a turquoise.

This sparkly light green - "Green Goddess" eyeshadow from Urban Decay ($17) is an alternative.

Noémie Lenoir sparkles in Elle, her eyes pop with black and white eyeliners.

Pure White Soft Khol (Rimmel, $3.60) to apply on your waterline to get this retro look.

If white pencil is too much for you - Lise Watier Duo Yeux Ombre et Lumière Liner  ($20) has pastels pencils instead.
