Eye candy The new season’s make-up looks

Looking good for a new dawn is purely cosmetic

The launch of Byredo’s make-up line last year saw the brand’s idiosyncra­tic ethos translated into a line of cosmetics that favoured unexpected colour combinatio­ns and avant-garde applicatio­n. Byredo’s latest product is an 18-colour eyeshadow palette that includes some of its most exuberant shades. We’ve combined a selection of those colours for a new take on the graphic 1980s style, creating a thoroughly modern cosmetic look at a time when the eyes are of the utmost importance. Prismatic eyeshadow in Touchstone, Chlorine, Larger and Convertibl­e, £77; Colour Stick in Sauce and Destroyer, £26; Lipstick in Earth Dust, £35; Mascara in Space Black, £35, all by Byredo

Blanched features are highlighte­d by the subtle crimson hues of Chanel’s S/S21 offering. The brand’s global creative make-up and colour director Lucia Pica displays her mastery of the colour red with a range that plays on the natural textures and tones of flushed skin. The collection’s limited-edition Fleurs de Printemps blush creates a subtle tint of life among ultra-matte, white-out features. Ultra Le Teint Fluide foundation in BD01, £40; Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Bouquet Ambré, £44; Fleurs de Printemps blush and highlighte­r, £52, all by Chanel. Gossamer Lashes lash extensions in Silver, $15, by Lashify

The geometric lines and bold precision of Armani couture take cosmetic form with Eye Tint, the brand’s liquid eyeshadow. The futuristic, graphic swirls of metallic ultramarin­e are echoed in the delicate curls of the hair, which are evocative of the up-dos seen on ancient Roman busts. The end result is a look that mixes elements of past and future for beauty that is entirely of the present. Eye Tint eyeshadow in Prussian Blue, £27; Rouge d’armani matte lipstick in Venezia, £32, both by Giorgio Armani

Here, the dewy texture of healthy skin is amplified. First, Gucci’s Fluide de Beauté foundation creates a flawless, even-toned base. This is then coated in the brand’s ultrashiny gel face gloss for an exaggerate­d interpreta­tion of clean skin, before being finished off with a matte nude lipstick for extra emphasis. It’s an aesthetic that suits Gucci’s characteri­stically bold take on beauty. Fluide de Beauté Fini Naturel foundation in 140W, £46; Éclat De Beauté Effet Lumière gel face gloss, £18; Rouge à Lèvres Mat lipstick in The Painted Veil, £35, all by Gucci

The high-octane glamour of Tom Ford is given a painterly edge in this rendering of the brand’s most flamboyant eye colour shades. The loose applicatio­n of olive and burnt orange is offset by the dramatic linearity of the eyebrow, creating eye make-up that’s as bold as the graphic geometries of the previous images.

Hermès has added three vibrant pink shades to its Rouge Hermès lipstick range, which comes in refillable tubes designed by Pierre Hardy. We have playfully inverted the refinement of the lipsticks with a slightly smudged applicatio­n, a sort of tongue-incheek interpreta­tion of the often-unintended appearance of lip make-up under masks.
