What You Do Now: The Cat Eye
How to Update It: The Floating Triangle
The runways were filled with models sporting graphic liner in all sorts of weird shapes, most of which would look ridiculous were you to try them in real life, no matter how fashion-forward you are. But if you do want to add a graphic twist to your cat eye, try drawing your typical winged liner, but leave the outer triangle uncoloured, a la Rochas’ spring runway style.
The way to update your basic (slash boring) no make-up make-up look is to add a wash of pink — think rosy cheeks, stained bitten lips and a wash of pink across the lids, as well as a swipe of colour below the lash line, all blended out and perfectly diffused. To keep things on the natural side, skip the liner, as seen on the Giorgio Armani runway.
What You Do Now: The Inner Corner Highlight
How to Update It: Switch Your Sparkle for Pastel
If you’re used to making your eyes look more “awake” by adding a noticeable dot of highlighter to the inner corner of each eye, try instead a pastel eyeshadow — it’s a great way to incorporate some of the hues spotted on the catwalks, from the mint-lidded models at Peter Pilotto to the periwinkle princesses at Missoni. You’ll get the same eye-opening effect, but with a more sophisticated sheen.
