The Winter Eye Shadow Trends We Can't Get Enough Of!
Posted on December 11 2015
A hot smoky eye is always sexy for the winter time. We have seen this look very often on runway and although it can be a bit dramatic and intimidating it is also gives a very seductive look. This look can be easily created with just black and brown liner. Green eyes look particularly good with a gray and plum smoky eye, while blue eyes pop with gold or copper and brown eyes go great with shades of navy and gray.
The natural is also a very popular look this season. Some people are just not a fan of flashy eye makeup. In the Fall Winter 2015 runways, there were a lot of models that used heavy eye-shadow, pencil and mascara but created a very neutral and "no makeup" look. Try focusing on the lighter tones that won't capture too much attention. Using subtle tones and highlights can really help give a whole new look.
This is one of runways' more dramatic and strong look. Peter Philips, the Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, created this bold graphic look. He focused on the intense palette of deep autumnal shades - this gorgeous burgundy red. Although a bolder look, this look would look great during a holiday party featuring a black dress. The Dior autumn colours palettes can also be found :http://www.sephora.com/5-colour-eyeshadow-P280400 (personal favourite: Amber Buit 746) This similar look can also be done with a thick eyeliner.
Even on The Blonde Salad
“In 2015 you can wear the eyeshadow not only over the eyelid but you can play with it geometrically around the eye.”
Try using a variety of hue and forms to give a modern touch. A seen on the Chanel Spring Summer 15 runway, or a monochrome colour as Céline did for its Fall Winter 15 collection. If you want to avoid a clown-look-alike effect our advice is to complete your makeup with a natural foundation and a nude lipstick: let your eyes speak for you!
