EIGHT­IES EYES

Friday - - Beauty -

While there may not be many things you want to bring back from the ’80s, we prom­ise you, wear­ing mono­tone eye­shadow (as in the days pre-dat­ing a smoky) – and wear­ing it slightly higher than usual – is one re­vival you’ll be happy about. On the cat­walk: Among the ’80s-in­spired shoul­der pads and ruf­fles that were also spot­ted on the cat­walks, eye­shadow hues were cho­sen and place­ment dic­tated in di­rect ref­er­ence to this colourful decade. François Nars showed this at Marc Ja­cobs, where he used one shadow around the en­tire eye area in pas­tel blue, green or pur­ple to co­or­di­nate with the mod­els’ coloured dread­locks, giv­ing the whole look a Cul­ture Club feel. In your life: When was the last time you wore one eye­shadow all over? Now is the time to reignite that love af­fair and choose a gor­geous pas­tel hue and, quite sim­ply, paint it all over your eye – up top and down be­low. And don’t hold back, take the colour over your crease line to­wards your brow. Make Boy Ge­orge proud. Need some colour in­spo? Look to Burberry’s new blue – yes blue! – eye­shadow, Eye Colour Silk in Stone Blue, Dh145, or try Clar­ins Om­bre Irides­cente in pas­tel pink, Dh110.
