DIF­FI­CULTY 3/3 Bold curves of colour were the eye or­der of the day on the A/W 17 cat­walks. And at Pra­bal Gu­rung, we met float­ing liner’s bitchy sis­ter: a sharp-edged ef­fect so un­apolo­getic it’s prac­ti­cally stick­ing a mid­dle fin­ger up. “Ap­ply bright pow­der us­ing a wet eye­liner brush to in­ten­sify colour,” ad­vises Sarah Lucero, global ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of cre­ative artistry at Stila Cos­met­ics. “You can use a make-up re­mover-soaked cot­ton bud to get the edges sharp.” Muji do the best pointy ones for this.“Go for a rus­tic red or or­ange,” adds Lucero. “True red will only fight against any red­ness in the skin.”


DIF­FI­CULTY 2/3 Peri­win­kle blue is the most wear­able bold, ac­cord­ing to Lucero.“It’s the go-to colour for brides­maid dresses, so go fig­ure.” Ap­ply a creamy-tex­tured eye pen­cil over the lid and blend it out with your fin­gers for that edge­less ef­fect. “Liq­uid-line the eye with an equally sun-bleached bright,” says Lucero.“A pur­ple-pink will make your blue pop with­out clash­ing.” Keep the rest of the face nude and nat­u­ral, dab­bing a cream blush onto the ap­ples and into the hol­lows of your cheeks to keep full fo­cus on the eye.


DIF­FI­CULTY 1.5/3 MAC make-up artist Lucy Bridge ap­plied an arc of skin ad­he­sive above the crease of her mod­els’ eyes for the Sadie Wil­liams A/W 17 show, pat­ting on some silver 3D glit­ter to com­ple­ment the disco-queen theme. For a quick-and-easy copy, use silver liq­uid liner in­stead, start­ing at the bridge of the nose and fol­low­ing the curve of your eye crease. Brush your brows up and fill with­out adding too much shape – there are only so many hard lines one face can take. Oh, and be sure to blot your eye­lids be­fore at­tempt­ing any of th­ese looks. The skin there is de­cep­tively greasy – you don’t want to blink away your hard work be­fore you’ve had your first drink.
