This was everywhere: Pastel purples on models' eyes at Derek Lam, Christian Dior, and Versace; amethyst shadow and violet-tinged lip gloss at Michael Kors; mauve lipstick at Fendi. Some of the models at Proenza Schouler even had their hair dyed lilac. Personally, we'd advise sticking with the eyeshadows—and using a light hand.
GET THE LOOK: For those of us not on the catwalk, says Monroe, "Less is more, always." Instead of wearing full-throttle deep purple, do one very sheer layer on your lid (and by the way, no shadow should ever go above the crease). Or use purple eyeshadow as a liner. Wet the liner brush or Q-tip, dab it in the shadow and apply it right above your lash line.
