If you can’t live without your trusty black eyeliner, switch it up and give purple a chance. The color brightens every eye color—especially brown eyes. We love purple eyeliner as on its own or against another bright shade for an eye-catching look. Or, you can use your favorite black liner as an anchor to make the purple stand out even more. You’ll never get bored playing around with colorful liner.

Use a purple eyeliner pencil to create a pretty smoky eye that’s unexpected. Smudge the bottom lash line for an allover sultry vibe. With a liquid liner, try a new take on the cat-eye or go with the floating eyeliner trend by swiping the color along your crease. You really can’t go wrong. And if you make a mistake, people will just think you’re being creative with color. It’s basically a win-win.

If you have sensitive eyes or are wearing lash extensions, look out for oil-free, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free formulas that won’t irritate your eyes or break down your lashes. If you’re planning on running around in the heat, waterproof and smudge-proof formulas will ensure your hard work stays put all day and night.
