It’s summer(!) and while I am usually a fan of more neutral eyeshadows, summer is always a fun time to branch out in the color spectrum. I’ve been noticing the new trend of putting a pop of color on the lower lash line in order to bring attention to the eye. I really like how purple plays up the color of my eyes, so I decided to try out a pop of purple on my lower lash line.
For this look, I used:

1. Apply concealer to hide any under-eye darkness. It helps if your concealer is applied in a downwards triangle under the the eye. This helps draw attention away from the circles and brightens the entire area. If desired apply eye primer to your lid.
2. Apply a light matte shadow to your lid. I would recommend sticking with a more neutral shade. I used a light matte pink.
3. Apply a darker shade to your crease and the outer third of your eyelid. I used a medium glittery purple shade, but you could use a neutral matte shade too. I wanted a bit of a light smokey effect.
4. Apply liquid liner, if desired, and then apply your bright pop of color to your lower lash line. I used a vivid purple and used a angled eyeshadow brush to apply it to my lower lash line. You may want to dampen your brush to get a cleaner line and reduce fallout.
I also applied a bit of the shadow to the beginning of my upper lash line, just close to the corner of my eye. Then, I applied mascara, and I really liked how it turned out!
I hope that this helps anyone who is looking to try out the pop of color trend. It is really a fun thing to play with. I don’t have a lot of eyeshadows that aren’t neutral, but I am definitely going to play around with the vivid shades I do have because the pop of color is a cool look!

Have you ever experimented with a pop of color on your lower lash line? Do you tend to use neutral shades or more colorful shades with your eye makeup?
