ESTEE LAUDER ENVY SCULPTING EYESHADOW PALETTE IN INFAMOUS SKY

Give your usual bronze-y shadow palette a Mediterranean edge this Summer with Estée Lauder’s Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow Palette in Infamous Sky. Wash the brightest of the blue shadows across the centre of your lids, and then around the inner corners of the eyes before contouring and shading your eyes with the darkest of the bronze shadows. Instead of lining your bronzed eyes with a black kohl, use the darkest of the two blues from the palette to give your eyes the kind of depth you saw on your last island holiday. To finish: highlight your brow bone with the golden-bronze shadow to really enhance your inner golden-goddess.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY LUXURY EYESHADOW PALETTE IN THE VINTAGE VAMP  

Plum, wine, and mauves are the colours this Summer. Last season we saw them replace the classic red lip colour, with this confident & modern substitute – this season they’re going to ‘spice-up’ our eyes in the same way. With three shades to choose from in Charlotte Tilbury’s Vintage Vamp Palette, you can choose how intense or subtle you want to go. Designed by one of the word’s leading makeup-artists, you can rest assure the blending of the rich pigments are next-to-none. With a quintessentially golden shadow to highlight and accent your eyes with a warm note of colour, this palette is a hot-choice the Summer!

RimmelSmokeyPurple_Maxmade

RIMMEL GLAM’EYES QUAD EYESHADOW SMOKEY PURPLE

One of the strongest eye trends seen across the international runway circuit this year, there is no denying purple has made one of it’s biggest returns since the 80’s. Coming in a multi-tude of shades from a more pinky-purple through a rich-blue purple, there is a shade for every occasion. The thing that most people don’t know about the colour purple is it suits ALL hair and eye colours. In fact, like those golden-bronze shadows we love for enhancing and brightening our eye colours – no matter the shade- the colour purple does the same. Tip; Use the lighter shades of purple for darker eyes and the darker smokey shades for lighter eyes. Don’t be afraid to colour-block and splash a rosy – mauve on your cheeks or lips. 

YSLCoturePalette

 

YVES SAINT LAURENT COLOUR PALETTE IN RIVE GOUCHE

Old blue eyes has returned and without a doubt it’s the talk of the town! Seeing every shade & combination on the lids of the likes of Kate Bosworth, Beyonce, Kim Kardashion, SJP and even Kristen Stewart and January Jones. It’s one of those colours that actually suits every skin, eye, and hair colour. Blended right, it can give your look the edge it deserves. YSL has carefully selected the perfect blend of blues to give the right amount of colour and coolness to the new colour du jour. Tip; Blend it deep and dark into the lashes or wash it high up on to the brow. Either way keep your lips clean and dewy and don’t be afraid to fill in you brows for definition!

SMASHBOX PHOTO OP EYESHADOW IN HEADSHOT

What I love about this colour combination is the lack of room for error in the order you layer with these 3 simple, yet delicious colours. Blend them all together for a 3 in 1 rose-y-bronzness with a delicate gold highlight – or lay down a bed of rose-y-pink before blending a Summery smokiness around the lashes with the bronze shade. No matter what, don’t forget to highlight all the high-points of your eyes – like the inner corners and brow bone- with the luminous-gold to finish. Tip; Oh, and a little flash of the gold shadow on the cupids bow of your lip and down the centre of the nose is one of the simplest and most effective ways to take your look into the evening light!
