Bursts of vi­brant shadow.

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents -

From the flashes of fuch­sia at Louis Vuit­ton to the graphic cobalt seen at Vic­to­ria Beck­ham’s show, bold chro­matic eye-colour is the high-volt­age beauty trend straight off the run­way this sea­son.

A pop of elec­tric colour is the fastest way to up­date those old browns and blacks, as long as you avoid the biggest pit­fall: un­der-blend­ing.

“Keep the stronger shade on the out­side corners of the eyes,” ad­vises May­belline’s global artist Nigel Stanis­laus, “and blend it well into a milder shade in the in­ner cor­ner of the eyes.” He rec­om­mends pretty com­bos like pur­ple and pink or or­ange and red. “Add a gold high­light for an out­stand­ing fin­ish.”

Scared of Bozo the Clown gar­ish­ness? Pare back the look with fresh, nude skin and soften cheeks, lips and nails with neu­tral tones. “You can also dial down high-pig­ment colour by wet­ting your brush and us­ing it as a coloured liner,” Stanis­laus adds.
