BANANA EYES The new eyeshadow trend has us feeling all fruity
Nail the new fruity eyeshadow shape
1 GRAPHIC STAMP
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.”
2 DOUBLE DECKER
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.
3 LUCKY STRIKE
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.
