For fear of looking a little (ahem) cheap, we typically keep our eye makeup down to a few coats of black mascara and the occasional black liner if we're feeling a bit sassy. This aversion to bold is possibly the result of one too many botched smokey eye attempts that left us looking more raccoon than ravishing. (It could also be that one of us spent seven long years in the make-up free zone that is a Good Catholic Education, thus missing the window for acceptable makeup faux pas.)
Named after the fearless style maven and heiress to the Guinness fortune, this electrifying violet shadow from NARS called Daphne is guaranteed to kick our make-up routine into high gear. Whether gracing the whole lid or lined thin above the lashes, this shade can go day-to-night and take your look from boring to brilliant. And while it may be a touch on the wild side, we can't think of a better cure for blah.
