Try out the DVF look, straight off the run­way

7 Days in Dubai - - BEAUTY - BLUE EYED GIRL GO AU NATUREL

nown for her iconic de­signs, in­clud­ing the wrap dress, Diana Von Fursten­berg is no stranger to the spot­light. Her sim­plis­tic and el­e­gant cloth­ing is a sta­ple of many wardrobes. But it’s not al­ways just about the clothes. The beauty world is en­joy­ing a very stylised throw­back by putting the de­signer’s own 70s style front and cen­tre. Mod­els at the re­cent DvF spring sum­mer sported bold and colour­ful looks by com­bin­ing a trop­i­cal om­bre eye, dewy skin, per­fectly pink lips and vo­lu­mi­nous curls. Here’s how to adopt the look as your own. The aqua­ma­rine om­bre eye at Diane von Fursten­berg was cre­ated with a wash of turquoise cream shadow above and be­low the eye, fol­lowed by a dense slick of blue eye­liner, blended and fin­ished with lash­ings of mas­cara. Over at Alexis Ma­bille in Paris, a brighter ver­sion of the aquatic eye was cre­ated by ap­ply­ing a cream cyan shadow over the whole eye­lid and bright yel­low above the socket. The two shades were then smudged to­gether, re­sult­ing in a char­treuse mix where they met in the mid­dle. Try the Shi­seido yel­low eye­shadow from Sephora (sephora-me.com), and the blue Make Up Fac­tory shadow from Lifestyle (lifestyle­stores.com) fin­ish. With six new shades just added, there are 16 hues, from ‘vanilla’ to ‘si­enna’, to choose from, so ev­ery­one can find their per­fect match.

Amp up your trop­i­cal glow with a touch of pearles­cent high­lighter on cheek­bones, and fin­ish with a faint dab of pink cream blusher on the ap­ples of your cheeks. Get BareMin­er­als from Sephora, and Max Fac­tor Eye Lu­minize to high­light, see max­fac­tor­in­ter­na­tional.com

With a bold, blue­green eye tak­ing cen­tre stage, lips need only be en­hanced a touch - a slick of balm will do.

For some­thing a lit­tle more ‘done’, try a mois­tur­is­ing gloss to con­di­tion and add shine, or a tinted liq­uid that’s no more than one shade darker or lighter than your nat­u­ral lip colour.

Try Clar­ins in­stant light lip comfort oil (above) for a bit of balmy shine.
