Want to look as pretty as a petal? This stunning shade looks great against brown, hazel and green peepers, and is one of eight beautiful Spring Summer trends, cleverly picked by Priceline Pharmacy Makeup Director Rae Morris and Festival of Beauty Ambassador Whitney Port.

“Grown-up pastels remain a strong runway trend this season,” says Rae Morris. “Flirty, fresh and modern, I love this lavender because it’s feminine but still fashion-forward. It’s subtle enough to wear during the day, and best of all it, it will really make your eyes pop, whatever their colour.”

And if Festival of Beauty Ambassador Whitney Port loves it – then we want to get involved too.

“I absolutely love lavender eyes!,” says Whitney Port. “It looks amazing with all-white or a grey-on-grey look, which I find myself wearing a lot lately.”

Step 1 – Draw light to your complexion with a liquid foundation that’ll instantly brighten your face. Try L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation, $33.95

Step 2 – Now it’s time to add colour to your eyes. This clever compact is all you’ll need for this look. Prime your eyes with the creamy colour (use your fingers if you need), then pat the bright purple colour into the eyelid for a standout finish. Try Revlon Photoready Primer, Shadow + Sparkle in Watercolor, $25.95

Step 3 – Go all out with a set of dramatic black falsies. Apply the glue straight onto the strip, wait until it’s almost dry, then apply straight on top of your natural lashes. Try 1000 Hour Natural Lashes in Black Vogue, $9.49

Step 4 – Using your ring finger, dab some highlighter over your brow bone, cheekbones and down your nose for a glowy effect. Try Australis Mineral Face Highlighter in Pearl, $15.95

Step 5 – Balance the look with a soft coral shade on your lips. Try Innoxa Summer Matte Lipstick in Coral Kiss, $14.95
