Colourful Peepers

The eye make-up palettes from the Fall collections were full of technicolour delights. From vivid orange to hypnotic green, the eyes have it in candy colours that pop perfect for your Easter long weekend.

Atmospheric eye make-up has a retro elegance for Fall. Take your cue from rich hues; bold lines; and an explosion of concentrated colour – across the lids, lashes & lips.

Statement making peepers appeared across the runways. At Prada, futuristic eyes had a Mad Max inspiration. Black was painted around the eyes and finished with bursts of orange intensity at the brow. Prabal Gurung’s brilliant blue plumes evoked a striking peacock; while at Stella McCartney lashes were layered in beautiful blue mascara.  

At Anna Sui, theatrical cobalt blue eyeliner flicks made a startlingly beautiful impression. To create the look, a thick liquid line was drawn along the models’ upper lashes with an upward flick on the end. The inner rim was traced with a white pencil to open the eye, before a coat of mascara added a dramatic 60’s feel.

Inspired by candy coloured brights, eye make-up is delicious enough to eat this Easter…

Will you embrace candy coloured eye make-up? xx

Make-Up Trends From The Catwalk

Forget The Lips! Autumn Has ‘Fall’en For The Eyes

While I love a statement red lip, this coming Autumn / Winter 2011 season it is all about dramatic, alluring, captivating eyes.

From girly playfulness at Donna Karan (pictured above left) to high-octane neon pinks at Thakoon (pictured right) – the Fall runways left lips nude while eyes had their moment. Powerful eye statements were also seen at: Philip Lim, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Rodarte.

My favourite: At Donna Karan tangerine cream eye shadow was smudged across the top lid while white eyeliner discreetly traced the bottom. Lips were a delightful pastel pink matte to soften the look. Eyebrows were left untamed. Sweet, simple, playful perfection!

Meanwhile, Philip Lim saw metallic green eyes take the spotlight. At Marc Jacobs, a modern tough baby doll aesthetic took the traditional sweetness of this trend to the next level. Anna Sui created a different take on eye contouring that was both dramatic and intriguing; while Vera Wang’s grunge eyes created a dark and brooding prettiness that was just the right amount of sweet and sexy. Rodarte drew inspiration for eyes from the reds, golds and tawny browns of autumn. But the cleanest look was Proenza Schouler, where ‘minimalist’ eyes still drew the bulk of the impact in the midst of this flawless, barely-there look.
