Master your makeup by flirt­ing with some for­ever- clas­sic shades

MAUVE MO­MENTS

Renowned Kiwi makeup artist Lisa Mat­son cre­ated this look us­ing a colour pal­ette that in­cluded a range of plum-based shades in dif­fer­ent in­ten­si­ties and fin­ishes, and which gave a pretty pop to the lips. “Plums, mauves and pur­ples are con­sid­ered uni­ver­sal colours as they tend to suit all skin tones, hair shades and eye hues – but es­pe­cially blue and green,” says Lisa. “They’re great colours to wear if you want your eyes to be the fo­cal point of your makeup, and if your bou­quet and brides­maid dresses are in hues of pink, pur­ple, blue or cool green.” Lisa loves these shades for all sea­sons, but says they re­ally shine in win­ter.

SMOKE AND MIR­RORS

There are two tricks to achiev­ing a soft, smoky eye, and you need both to cre­ate the look suc­cess­fully. The first trick is to ap­ply the dark­est shadow colour around the outer cor­ners and to mid- eye only and com­ple­ment with lighter shades to­wards the in­ner cor­ner. Then, you need to blend the shades per­fectly, leav­ing no harsh edges. Says Lisa, “A smoky eye can be cre­ated with an ar­ray of colours to suit ev­ery bride and wed­ding colour story, and while us­ing black is most com­mon, smoky shades can also be cre­ated with grey, choco­late or navy eye­shadow colours.”
