Whether a silvery lavender smoky eye with rich eggplant shading or a luminously bright pop of near-neon lilac swiped across your upper lid, it's a great way to add some color to your look, both subtle and not-so-subtle.

Everyone from Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai to pop star/beauty mogul Rihanna has proven that there are many, many ways to make lavender eyeshadow sing. Read on for some of our favorite looks — and shop everything you need to recreate them at home.

Hazel Eyes: Rihanna

Leave it to Rihanna to make lavender eyeshadow look like the best thing since sliced bread. It looks high-fashion, especially when paired with matching lilac blush and lip gloss. The Fenty Beauty Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette, $59, is a pretty safe bet for copying her look. And while you're at it, you may as well pair it with the Fenty Beauty Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter in Gal on the Moon, $19, and Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Unicorn, $25.

Brown Eyes: Demi Lovato

How cool is this look? The vibrant shade of lavender adds the perfect pop of color to Demi Lovato's look, especially since it coordinates so well with her matching satin slip dress. Try a high-octane metallic shadow like L'Oreal Infallible Paints Metallics in Violet Luster, $8.99, if want to take her look out for a spin.

Brown Eyes: Selena Gomez

Like her BFF Demi, Selena Gomez also knows how to rock some lavender eyeshadow. Here, she wears a classic smoky eye topped off with a sparkly cool purple accent. An iridescent purple with a duochrome shift like Tom Ford Private Shadow in Camera Obscura, $36, is key to pulling this look off — along with your best smoky eye skills, of course.

Hazel Eyes: Mandy Moore

This lavender eyeshadow look is very high fashion — perfect for the Met Gala, in other words. At this year's Costume Institute Gala, Mandy Moore went for an editorial look, where her flawless skin and violet eyes took center stage. You're going to want a pigmented lavender eyeshadow with a dash of orchid purple like M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Stars 'N' Rockets, $16, to try this look at home.
