This season the eye is redefined with a lighter and friendlier palette of burgundies and browns. Powerful yet easy to wear, this look was spotted on the runways of Thankoon, Alexander Wang and Anna Sui. Get the look by applying a smooth concealer for a clean canvas, then apply brown eyeliner on both the upper and lower lash line then smudge it lightly. Try Dior’s 5 Couleurs in Incognito for the perfect mix of autumn shades. Use the darker brown shadow to sweep over the lid and into the crease, blending upwards and out. Take a smaller eye-shadow brush and smudge more of the shadow along the lower lid, before taking a lighter brown closer to the brow bone. Finish off with a couple of coats of brown mascara- Bobbi Brown Extreme party Mascara is a great choice.
New Rouge Intense from YSL is less like a lipstick and more like a crayon. Totally matt, it feels dry, but is not drying, due to the combination of fine silk particles which give it staying power, and natural oils and waxes which keep it supple. The seven shades are strong and include Flame Red, Pink Passion and Mahogany. The stick itself has a very precise edge making it easy to achieve good definition even without a lip brush.
