SHEER SHADOW

Friday - - Front Page -

The trend: Whim­si­cal washes of shadow orb­ing the eye made for a pretty pas­tel al­ter­na­tive to the clas­sic smoky-eye for Spring/Sum­mer. Think soft, nude hues and ro­man­tic muted metallics.

Seen at: “A woman with the free­dom to fly, both soft and brave,” read Gior­gio Ar­mani’s brief to his team back­stage, which in­spired make-up artist Linda Can­tello to cre­ate a cloud of sub­tle sea-green around the eyes (pic­tured). Mean­while at Burberry Prorsum, make-up artist Wendy Rowe in­ter­preted the English Rose theme with a wash of pretty pink across the eye­lids. Holly Ful­ton’s shim­mery li­lac eye was a nod to the 1970s.

How to: 1. Ap­ply an un­der-eye primer and top with a cor­rec­tive con­cealer to cover any dark cir­cles. 2. Fol­low with an eye­lid primer, then sweep your cho­sen shadow all over the lid us­ing your ring fin­ger. Use a blend­ing brush to soften the shadow into shape, leav­ing it dark­est at the outer-bot­tom and in­ner-top cor­ners. 3. Fin­ish with a light coat of mas­cara on the lashes.
