Feb 24 2011 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.
