As the FW19 Runway season draws to an end, ONE TREND THAT WILL NO DOUBT CONTINUE ALL YEAR LONG: BOLD, experimental beauty. STARTING WITH YOUR EYESHADOW.

The typical smoky eye look and red lipstick have been traded in favor of more colorful, bold looks. Nothing is off limits. It’s all about finding colors that give a look that extra edge, and your eye-shadow is one way to do it.

GoldenEye: Gold Shimmer

CHANEL beauty

Gilded lids have been all over the red carpet this season, from Jennifer Lopez to SZA. Between the luminous golds and shimmery beiges, it’s easy to see why celebrities are turning to this shade to give their look some star power. It’s bright enough to turn heads but modest enough to not overpower your features. It’s effortless glamour. Layer for a smoky golden-eye or dust your lids in one tone. Add a darker shade to the lower lash line for some punch.

Sandy hues work on a variety of skin tones and golden glitters can be worn for almost any occasion.


Violet Nights: Purple-Blue Haze

Purple gets a bad rep as a shade that’s difficult to work with (unless you’re a makeup pro). This color can add a feminine feel to your look and pairs nicely with naturals. The key to working with them is determining what intensity fits your skin tone. Colors like mauve, magenta, and mulberry can take your look from demure to daring. If you’re going for something dreamy, mix purple with light beige or cream tone. For something bold, play around with dark blues and grays, instead of black or brown. Purple is easy to have fun with, regardless of what kind of event you’re going to.

Desert Rose: Red & Rose Gold

CHRISTIAN DIOR beauty

Red looks have been everywhere, from glossy sheens to more dreamy touches. Try lightly dusting a coral or red shade on your upper and lower lash line, then fill in the lid with a golden tone to add a rose gold tint. If red feels overpowering, go over with a highlighter to soften the tone. Take an adventurous turn and shade your outer eye with a bronze hue for a desert-rose feel. You can play up the intensity for a night out or dial down for something more casual.

Champagne Nights: Doe Eyed

TOM FORD beauty

If you’re not ready to make a bold statement with your makeup, champagne and brown tones are the ticket. For the doe-eyed look, go over your whole lid with a light taupe, then fill in with a medium brown. Fill in the outer eye area with a rich, cocoa brown and blend out to add dimension. You can add some shimmer to the inner corner of your eye and right under your brow bone. This look works for day or night - subtle sensuality.
