This romantic lilac eye look is perfect for long winter nights

As fragrant as they are lovely, lilacs are said to symbolize love's first blush. In fact, this pretty purple bud is named for the nymph Syringa, who changed herself into a flower to hide after the amorous god Pan fell in love with her. In light of this tale, it's no surprise that lilac is a perennial favorite among both makeup lovers and romantics at heart.
Featuring a bold purple lid and a statement brow, this style is as appropriate for the first date as the 50th. Try it out the next time you want to fall in love all over again.
