How to Re-create the Violet Eyes From Jason Wu

Jason Wu makeup artist Diane Kendal took her beauty inspiration from the striking violet accordion silk dress that closed out the designer's fall runway show. "It's a signature Jason Wu cat-eye," Kendal said. "But it's softer and more blended." Herewith, the step-by-step instructions to re-create this powerful purple look, as illustrated by Samantha Hahn.

Products used: Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Purple Dusk, indigo shadow from the Jason Wu collection (available next fall), and Liner Design Gel Eye Liner in black.

Step 1: Take a purple eyeliner pencil and draw a line from the tear duct, following your eyelid crease, across the lid. Finish the outline in a cat-eye shape. Draw liner along the bottom lashes too.

Step 2: With a small rounded brush, fill in the lined area of the eye with an indigo-toned eye shadow.

Step 3: Use your finger to dab a dot of shimmering purple cream shadow onto the center of each eyelid.

Step 4: Draw a very fine line of black cream liner close to the upper lash line with an angled brush. Swipe on mascara.

Final face: Contour cheeks with shimmery peach blush, then a dab of lip balm and you're done.
