1 CROSS THE LINE DIF­FI­CULTY 3/3

Give Twiggy a run for her money with Anna Sui’s A/W 18 take on the icon’s sig­na­ture ’60s look. To start, “gen­tly buff pink shadow up from the in­ner cor­ner of the eye, us­ing a fluffy eye­shadow brush,” says Lord & Berry make-up artist Abbi-Rose Crook. Then take a pur­ple liq­uid eye­liner and “trace a line that fol­lows the shape of the up­per lashes di­rectly above the crease”. With the same colour, draw a fe­line flick and line the bot­tom lashes. For the grand fi­nale: add some stand­out falsies to your up­per and lower lids. Then sit back and watch the modelling con­tracts roll on in.

2 A CLASH COURSE DIF­FI­CULTY 1.5/3

If you’re afraid an all-out rain­bow eye might be a lit­tle too out-there for the of­fice, try Rosie As­soulin’s A/W 18 colour clash along the wa­ter­line – it’s more sub­tle than you’d think. Us­ing a damp pen­cil brush, ap­ply a vivid yel­low shadow “from the in­ner cor­ner of the lower lashes to­wards the cen­tre of the lower lid, mak­ing sure to keep it very close to the lash line,” says Crook. Then take a turquoise liner and care­fully ap­ply it along the rest of the wa­ter­line and just be­low, blend­ing the yel­low and blue to­gether in the mid­dle us­ing the same pen­cil brush. If you’re see­ing green, you’re good to go.

3 LAYER CAKE DIF­FI­CULTY 1/3

Sim­ple, speedy and state­ment: this masala red and corn­flower blue combo breaks all the rules. To recre­ate the Peter Pilotto A/W 18 look, Crook says you should “start with an eye­shadow primer to in­ten­sify the colour pay­off”. Ap­ply a thin, even layer of primer, then “use a flat brush to pack the blue shadow onto the top lids, buff­ing the edges out with a fluffy brush to­wards the brow,” says Crook. To fin­ish, sim­ply take a brick-red eye paint and “gen­tly blend it un­der the lash line”, touch­ing up any mess with a cot­ton bud dipped in mi­cel­lar wa­ter. Et voila.
