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.
