Crave a sugar hit? The eyes have it with bursting colours so exquisite you cannot help but become eye candy.
Be bold and brilliant in colours so vivacious your eyes will shimmer like delectable sugary treats. From striking icy blues to luscious pink blooms, embrace a colour palette worthy of Andy Warhol and Studio 54.
‘Candy Face’ the new Yves Saint Laurent makeup collection took its inspiration from a range of delicious delights. Of the collection, Lloyd Simmonds, Yves Saint Laurent’s International Make-up Artist has said:
“The gleam of an infinite profusion of dazzling fruit jellies, translucent raspberry and wild strawberry, mandarin orange, melon, mango and persimmon bring a gorgeous flush to the Yves Saint Laurent woman’s face.
Her smile is as bright as shining sugared drops and syrups: shocking cherry, tangerine, grape and pomegranate, crystallized rose petals, mint and chocolate.”
To create this delicious look, use one or two colours & really build up the colour intensity.
Apply the darker colour to the eyelid and tonally blend it out to soften the effect. To add an additional burst of colour intensity, draw a graphic cat’s eye liner in a brilliant complimentary tone.
When creating a candy coloured eye palette, be sure to keep your blush and lip colour minimal. Strong eyes call for soft pink lip gloss and a dewy fresh complexion.
“There are no real rules in choosing colours… It’s good to experiment.” – Lloyd Simmonds (pictured above)
