Why shy away from dramatic looks when you can flaunt them? This season’s latest rave focuses on tasteful bold, and defined eyes; think Avril Lavigne meets Dior Haute Couture – the clash of serious rebellion and class in the best possible way.
Let’s call it dark glamour: A carefully smudged, almost-smokey eye that’s made more defined by thick eyeliner and volumised lashes. And if you’re not one for a gothic all-black look, you can always underline your eyes with a pop of colour to give them some added allure.
The fundamental products you will need for the look include Tom Ford Beauty’s Soleil Summer Cream and Powder Eye Colour in Blacksand and DIOR Diorshow’s Mono Couleur Couture in Lucky Clover – applied to your eyelids and its surrounding area as your base. Should you wish for a bolder look, DIOR Diorshow’s Maximizer 3D Mascara – to prime and lift your lashes. And Gucci Beauty’s Mascara L'Obscur – to fully volumise your lashes with thick, dark strokes.
To elevate your look, feel free to incorporate colour, a dark liner, and a slight highlight around your canvas to give it structure. Use M.A.C’s Eye Shadow Palette in Cruella To Be Kind to add a touch of colour, Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Exagger-eyes Liner Duo and Dolce & Gabbana’s Felineyes Eyeliner Stylo to trace along and around your lash line for a more piercing cat-eye look, and NUDESTIX’s Nudies Glow in Ice Ice Baby as a gentle highlight dotted at the corner of your eyes for that added oomph.
