Colour-pop eyes? In January? Yes. You. Can. Here’s how to
boss bold eyes for less...
It’s time to match our makeup to our new-year mood: bold, bright and beautiful. Making an appearance at the Leonard AW19 show, this punchy eye suits all skin tones, flattering dark complexions and pepping up fairer faces. Want in? Here’s how to blend and buff your way to the look.
A fresh base is key to nailing it. Erase imperfections with a lightweight foundation, then work a gel highlighter down the bridge of your nose and on your Cupid’s bow, to add a subtle glow. Dust bronzer into cheek hollows to shape and structure the face, and – voilà – you’re good to go.
To create an ombré effect, apply a transition shade, close in colour to your skin tone, all over your eyes as a base. Next up, get colourful with warm burnt orange and dusky pink shadows. Start with your lightest colour towards the inner corner of your eye and slowly blend in your darker tones as you work towards the outer corner. Want extra pizzazz? Tie everything together with a tonal nail polish.
