Don’t you just love Nicole Richie’s pretty purple peepers? Me too! Here’s a great way to get them!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock all spring, you know that purple is the color of the season. I really love Nicole Richie‘s take on the trend that she wore out in LA on Apr. 21. How great does the shadow look brought slightly into the inner corner of her eyes? Plus, the thick black liner at her lashes really helps to keep the look defined and sexy. To get this look this season, I’ve been using Bobbi Brown Color Strips in Orchid. It’s the most perfect purple palette. It has a great nude base color and three purples that range from subtle to intense. Plus, it’s got a black powder that’s perfect for lining lids. I like to mix the three purple hues together to create a totally unique color depending on my mood. As a finishing touch, I use one of the three cream tints in the palette on my cheeks and lips – they perfectly complement the purply tones of the shadows.
