Has spring really sprung? One minute as you bask in the elated warmth, you feel winter is finally long gone. Literally in moments of an outfit change, you’re slapped with the icy backhand of the wind. Was I only dreaming spring? The seasons have been straddling the fence hot and cold, and it’s making us feverish. What other color best suits our bi-polar climate needs than the elusive purple? Seen on the Spring/Summer 2011 beauty looks of Christian Dior, Etro, and Versace, no other shade captures surreal and exotic like our chameleon violet. Channel the ethereal-bird-gaze-blue-for-romance look with a sheer wash of Make-Up Forever’s Lilac Matte 116 or YSL OMBRES 5 LUMIÈRES, 5 Colour Harmony For Eyes – 4 Lilac Sky. Add some sultry wings as seen on Jason Wu’s runway for your alter ego beauty prowess. Ready to come out of the cage and show off your tail feathers, try Nars eyeshadow in Daphne or Lancôme Ombre Magnétique in Ultra-Lavande for a smoky eye instead of the playing safe with black. Complete the look with a cat eye in Dior Liquid Eyeliner and pale nude lips in Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Madère, both must-haves for this season.
