This is the time of the year when you are inundated with invites to parties, weddings & formal events. Needless to say, your make-up kit has to sometimes work overtime to make sure you look stunning at all these shindigs. So, now is the time to update your make-up bag with all the trending beauty products, specially the must-have eye shadows that will give your face the perfect touch of drama this season. Instead of whole palettes, go for single eye shadows in the season’s hottest colors to always have your make-up game on fleek and look like a million bucks at all the parties!
All that glitters
This party season, all you bling-lovers have got yet another reason to rise & shine! Glitter eye shadows in gold are all the rage all around the world, so why should you be left behind? Invest in a fun glitter gold eye shadow and flaunt them unabashedly – either as a full cover on the lids, or start off with shimmer gold eye shadow on the inside & blend it with gold glitter towards the outer corner. With all that glitter on them, let your eyes do all the talking & go for a softer nude or peach shade for the lips.
Fifty shades of black
This season, the international runways were full of gothic eye make-up with abundant use of black eye shadow in various stages of smokiness. Go all-black with bold, gothic eyes; or achieve a smoky effect by mixing the black with metallics or greys. You can either balance out the heavy eye make-up with soft pink lips or channel a retro rock n’ roll vibe with smoky eyes and a bold red pout. You can also accentuate the black eye shadow further by accompanying it with dark, kohl-lined lower eyeline.
If you think gold has been overdone at weddings or sangeets, put a twist in your eye make-up tale by flaunting some copper this year! Copper eye shadows have ruled the latest runways, and now it’s time you embraced this gorgeous trend too! You can dress your eyes up with a subtle copper tint on the lids & oodles of mascara, or mix the copper with darker browns for a dramatic smoky look, paired with a glowing ‘au-natural’ face. What’s more, copper is such a hue that’ll complement outfits in any color – be it dark hues like black & navy or light shades such as whites or beiges.
If you want to stand out in the metallic or smoky-eyed crowd, then add that perfect pop of fun to your lids with the season’s coolest shades of blue. Go graphic with bright aqua blue lines instead of an all-over eye shadow, or jazz up your peepers with a vibrant metallic blue shadow, flicking it out towards the temple. A dash electric blue on the eyes is a fun way of prepping up an LBD for a Christmas eve party as well as lending a pop of color to a neutral-hued lehenga for your bestie’s sangeet!
If your make-up kit doesn’t have a silver eye shadow, it’s time you got yourself a nice, shimmery one! Subtle touches of silver in the corner creases or as a brow highlighter is a chic way of adding some metallic shine to a soft, natural make-up. You can even go all-out and shine like a star in bold, silver eye shadow, paired with a white liner on the lower lid and pink or mauve lips. You can vary the amount of silver on the eyes according to the occasion & whether it is a day or night event.
So, visit the nearest Lifestyle store or check out the website and get your hands on these happening eye shadow colors to flaunt make-up that’ll grab eyeballs wherever you go this season! After all, your eyes are the windows to your soul.
