Smokey eyes for winter
Nature often knows best when it comes to selecting beautiful, easy to wear colours. This is so true when selecting eye shadows; for day or for evening. The most beautiful eyes this winter borrow shades from the barks, stones and foliage that surround us. It is all in the subtle blending that makes eyes in smokey hues look like a beautiful exaggeration of the shadows our eyes create. Rule of thumb is to go quietly for day and create a touch more drama for the evening. Paula Style recommends you have a professional lesson – most cosmetic brands offer this service. Book into Elizabeth Arden’s new Queen Street boutique or talk to the beauty advisors at the Estée Lauder, Dr. Hauschka or Lancôme counters and treat yourself, knowing that when you apply the new season looks, your creative skills will be well informed. We bring you some of the best smokey new palettes available this season, all borrowed from nature and all designed to enhance every eyelid.
