The most popular colour for the lids this season is metal ochre, bronze or deep gold.
Metallics have made a serious comeback on the runway. Alexander Wang used gorgeous redhead models in his show, made up in many hues of shimmery ochre eye shadows.
Warm bronze tones look stunning worn with just nude foundation and black mascara. This trend does not require false lashes.

Hot Pink Lips
Pink bee-stung lips are mega-seductive. Choose between pale, cloudy pink paired with a strong brow, or neon lip shades and bold, primal eyeshadows for a statement look.
If opting for brighter shades of pink, use the matching lip pencil after you apply your lipstick for the perfect outline.

The sexy dark mouth is a hit this coming season. The Marc Jacobs show was full of black matte lips while Dior went for wine colours complemented with “no-makeup” faces.
To adapt this trend from the runway to the street, try a wine or dark crimson lip stain and keep the rest of your face understated. To keep your look sexy and not too graphic, dab the lipstick on with your finger and then rub your lips together.

Strong, perfect liner and smooth and healthy natural skin is making a comeback.
Wear your liner in black in any finish – matte or shiny. Unless you are a pro with liquid liner, opt for user-friendly gel and apply it with an angled brush.
Another favourite current look is a monoshadow lid in black. Smoke your shadow just a bit to soften the edges and wear those strong, sexy eyes with nude lips. Don’t forget to apply black pencil or gel onto your waterline, as well. This look is perfect for the evening.

We are loving the beautiful faces at the Marni show – glowing skin that breathes health, completely nude eyes and strong lips.
To make your eyes look awake, natural and fresh, swipe some light, shimmery shadow in ivory or beige colours all over the lid, then curl your lashes and apply only one coat of black mascara. Don’t forget to brush out your lashes after applying the mascara to keep your eyes looking natural.
