Home // Fashion // Beauty // BEAUTIFY: Make it POP


The sun is out, people are smiling. What’s missing? Ah yes, we need to make the migration from our monochromatic (at best) winter layers to lighter, warmer- and most importantly- colourful threads. Along with this- (or in my case, instead of) it’s time to step it up in the beauty department and add some colour to your eyes.


Bright pops of colour were seen as the focus on eyes (the Spring/Summer ’13 beauty feature) at all the shows- from Topshop Unique’s graphic blue eyes, to Dior’s diamanté frenzy. It’s chic- when you do it well. The new green eye pencil’s from NARS and Aveda give you the control you need to execute graphic desgins, as well as being the easiest way to add a dash of colour where a black would normally lurk.

Our favourite new colour-full product, however, comes from Laura Mercier in the form of the Creme Eye Liner. Small pots of creamy textured liner that is more than happy to sit in place all day. Try it in Cobalt.
