However, fashion mogul Sofia Vergara recently wore the style to the recent Screen Actor's Guild Awards and the result was simply spectacular, according to HollywoodLife.com.

Vergara wore a selection of purple accessories that were set in silver, so her makeup artist set about trying to find a pairing with her eye makeup. She eventually settled on a dark plum eyeshadow that she paired with tube mascara and a touch of liquid eyeliner.

Vergara's makeup artist first applied the eyeshadow to her upper and lower lids and used a bit of eyeshadow primer beforehand. This helps to protect the cosmetics from running or smudging and maintains a superior hold. Finally, the makeup artist used a bit of mauve eyeshadow on Vergara's inner creases as a final touch to add visual interest.

A good rule of thumb when pairing makeup with accessories is to go with a complementary hue or a darker or lighter shade of the same color. This will create dazzling contrast that will wow others at your next social occasion.
