It's probably safe to say that for the past few years, colorful eyeshadows have been underutilized. It's a shame, really, because they can be damn useful when applied correctly. It's Beauty 101: green eyes are showcased with a dusting of violet shadow (though, it should be noted that purples tend to work well with every eye color and is said to make the wearer look more youthful, if you're into that kind of thing).
While considering what makeup to put Devon in—who resembles the closest thing to a human Barbie we've seen since Tyra in Life Size— she pulled up an inspiration photo on her phone. It wasn't an editorial from i-D, or even an Instagram. It was a a movie still of Kate Hudson in Bride Wars. So...unexpected. Upon closer consideration, the delicately smoky lilac suited her perfectly—just rosy enough without being too pretty in pink. Devon did her own makeup, recreating Kate with Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Violet Dusk (which is sadly discontinued, but the Lavender Lust quad is strikingly similar). She topped it off with a serving of Burberry's Fresh Glow Luminous Liquid Base in Nude Radiance and a quick swipe of Tom Ford Lip Color in Nude Vanille for good measure. Never has anything from Bride Wars looked so good.
