Having violet-colored eyes have always been an [iris / melanin-related jackpot] indication of great beauty (Consider Elizabeth Taylor’s pair, topped by her Doubled set of lashes, a genetic mutation, to boot), but what of violet-hued eyelashes ?

I’m not one to stray from the thin black liner / thick black fringe combination, at the risk of looking like I got lost on the way to a rave. Or at least, that’s what I thought, until, I started picking up on what the industry’s putting down, ie Guerlain’s Cils D’Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara and Chanel’s Intense purple Inmitable, Both in aubergine-enough-meaning, mellow brownish-purple-shades That pick up any flecks of green or gold in my iris like nobody’s business. No kiddie scary-tints, and the spiked-wands Are those plastic ones that I love (for premiere lash-grabbing). As for the color, it melts into and around the natural dark shade of your eyelash for just a subtle hint of intrigue, to keep Those eyeballs coming back your way … at least until you’re Able to grow another layer of lashes, like good ol ‘Liz.
