UP IN SMOKE Smoul­der­ing eyes get an up­date

ELLE (Malaysia) - - ON THE COVER -

Smoke is in the air this sum­mer. Eter­nally al­lur­ing and end­lessly cus­tomis­able, a dark halo cir­cling the eyes is a beauty clas­sic, flat­ter­ing on all eye shapes and skin tones. Smoky eyes emerged from kohl-rimmed an­cient Egypt, but for fresh ideas, we sug­gest look­ing to the Spring/Sum­mer 2017 run­ways. First up, Christo­pher Kane’s ethe­real taupe haze. Not your gar­den va­ri­ety smoke, this is a sheer coat of colour that adds depth with­out over­pow­er­ing a tonal, beige-hued look. Mean­while, good old dark rims were de­fined to a winged point be­hind Elie Saab’s retro-cool tinted sun­glasses.

Also com­bin­ing fin­ishes was Val Gar­land at Al­berta Fer­retti. In­spired by smoky eye-cham­pion Kate Moss, she whipped up tex­tu­ral il­lu­sions of depth with eye­lin­ers in cream (for a sheer veil), liq­uid (for ra­zor­sharp lines) and pen­cil (for a hit of rock & roll). Bored of black? See Gior­gio Ar­mani’s ver­sion, amped all the way up with mile-long lashes and a swipe of metal­lic blue. And for those en route to an is­land party, take a cue from the slick, shiny eyes at Baja East and melt your makeup be­fore the heat does – sim­ply run a lit­tle gloss over your kohl of choice. Just be sure to keep your skin clean and matte, and brows combed to steer clear of a greased pan ef­fect.
