Purple eyeshadow may sound like it only belongs in a flashy '80s music video, but lately celebs are bringing the trend back in an incredibly subtle, pretty way. Luckily, we got Taylor Schilling's makeup artist, Georgie Eisdell, to school us on how to do it right.

Start by applying an off-white, matte shadow all over the lid as the base. "I used a violet gel liner to create a cat eye and blended a deep plum shadow slightly upwards to get a sexy, smudged effect," said Eisdell. He then completed the look with a layer of black mascara, followed by a layer of dark purple mascara on top. "You want to focus on just the eyes and brows here," he said. "Groom the brows with a pencil to slightly extend them and really open up the eye area. Keep the rest of the face light and fresh with a touch of beige-pink powder blush on the cheeks and a nude lipstick." It's such a great look for both work and weekend, which means less time worrying about your makeup and more time enjoying your summer Friday!
