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…

Sultry, Sexy Cat Eye Make-Up
My Weekend Inspiration came in the form of a beauty editorial for Vogue Japan featuring some decadently delicious eye make-up. The editorial entitled ‘Call Her Diva’, featuring Crystal Renn, styled by Anna dello Russo and photographed by Giampaolo Sgura, highlights dramatic cat eyes teamed with striking crimson lips and luscious pink shades. Throughout the images Renn wears vibrant pieces by Tom Ford, Rocha and Yves Saint Laurent, amongst others.
Cat eyes are edgy, sexy and dramatically alluring. It is the best way to draw attention to your eyes. Cat eye make-up can be as dramatic or subtle as you like. Start by using a sharp eyeliner pencil, in black or brown, to make a bold statement. Lightly trace the pencil along the root of your eyelashes – from the inner eye and work your way out. Follow the natural curve of your eye and stop just before your pupil ends. Begin to subtly slant your eyeliner line upwards and continue as long as you desire. You will then have a thin cat eye line; continue to retrace your steps until the line is to your desired thickness.
To add that extra va-va voom, incorporate some colour! Be inspired by Crystal Renn’s eye popping colour in an assortment of irresistible hues…
Which make-up trick is guaranteed to make you feel fabulous? xx
