“Lip shades on the eyes is the sum­mery in­ter­pre­ta­tion of last sea­son’s play­ing with the un­der­tones in the skin,” di­vulges make-up ex­pert Lyne Des­noy­ers. English make-up artist Kabuki cre­ates a cock­tail of cyan, fuchsia, and white lip colours for the chalky pur­ple seen on the eye­lids of the mod­els at Sally La Pointe.

Pecheux also carves a niche with the ro­man­tic mauve eye­lids he cre­ated for Derek Lam. The ap­pli­ca­tion is wa­ter-coloured, and the tex­ture a re­sult of us­ing lip­stick: MAC Pro Lip­stick in Vi­o­letta, to be ex­act.

On the op­po­site end of the spec­trum, un­der eye­lids are also treated to a free hand. See Holly Ful­ton, where girls wore “sky colours”, notes An­drew Gal­limore, who traces the lower lids in an om­bre cyan while leav­ing the lashes clean, “fresh, el­e­gantly un­fussy.”


“It is a pal­ette cleanser of pas­tels,” says Kabuki of this free-spir­ited to­geth­er­ness seen on the run­ways this sea­son. The crux of the trend lies in a free­dom of hand, the quaint use of colour – think minty greens, glossy eye­lids, liq­uid metal, and ice-cream pas­tels – an out-of-the-box mix of prod­ucts, and of course, in­sou­ciant hair: “If you see a woman in a beau­ti­ful Dior dress and her hair feels un­fet­tered, you kind of look at her and think, ‘Wow, she has a lot of con­fi­dence’,” says mane man Guido Palau of the ef­fort­less rakedthrough tresses that went so well with the satin mac­a­roon-hued lids Philips cre­ated for Raf Simons’s Dior.

For­get about get­ting done; this is all about leav­ing the rules be­hind and let­ting your hair down for a day of wild, fairy wood­land fun. Here, noth­ing is too pre­cious to wear to frolic in the thick of the woods – danc­ing sprites and mag­i­cal love po­tions op­tional.
