ALL BRIGHT ON THE NIGHT
Retire the phrase “I woke up like this” for spring. Colour is officially back. Blue was the It hue (see Jonathan Saunders, Giamba, Sonia Rykiel and company), but the runway still offered up a variety of rainbow brights. Kabuki, makeup artist for Manish Arora, framed eyes with prismatic purples and neons, while at Monique Lhuillier lids were bluntly lined with emerald green or cyan blue. Try using a saturated cream or gel liner if you’re ready to go bold, and don’t be afraid of DIY: At Issey Miyake, Alex Box brushed liquid pigment on temples and blew through a straw to create a unique splash of colour. “It’s more of an artist’s stroke for applying liner. It’s not traditional, which I think is really pretty,” said Melissa Gibson, senior artist for M.A.C Cosmetics.
