This Is Spring’s Trendiest Makeup Color (Hey, If Rihanna’s Doing It…)
Pantone deemed Ultra Violet the Color of the Year; Pinterest gave its crowdsourced nod to sage. However, neither one these shades seems to have captured the hearts of beauty obsessives quite like one particular pastel: lilac.
The delicate purple has been spotted on celebs like Rihanna, Olivia Culpo, Joan Smalls and Shay Mitchell everywhere from their eyes to their cheeks to their pretty pouts. Want to get in on the game? Here are a few of our fave lavender products to try yourself. Oh, and they’re all under $25. Score.
