For the daily look, however, it is advisable to combine it with optical white or pearl gray, for a breath of magical beauty to every outfit. The Ultra Violet is therefore the perfect color to give a gritty and sensual allure, ideal for women who want to dare even with an intriguing and exuberant make up.
