Natural skin and brows serve as a blank palette for bright, graphic eye shapes in every color of the rainbow. From the angular shapes at Prabal Gurung to smudged cobalt at Chromat, eye makeup is bold this season.
At Prabal Gurung, makeup artist Diane Kendal designed a sharp, angular shape that sits above the creases of the eyes, representing the strength of women to complement the powerful statements in the clothing. Models’ complexions dictated whether they wore green, sky blue, bright orange, or pigmented red on their eyes. The look required a steady hand, using Chromacake applied with an angled 263 brush.
Models at Dion Lee wore red, finger-painted eyes in varying shapes. Some girls had the dark red shade smeared across their lids, while others had it just in the outer corners or in the shape of an exaggerated cat eye. Makeup artist Hannah Murray created the look using MAC’s Paint Sticks in three colors to create a shade called Bespoke Burgundy.
Makeup artist Fatima T. used MAC products to create eye makeup with shades of blue, ranging from royal to cobalt, for Chromat. The design was inspired by movement and framed the outer corners of the eyes. Sitting above the cheekbones and moving outward toward the hairline, the makeup created a lifted look.
At Desigual, models wore blocks of red-orange color above the creases of their eyes. The look was created using MAC’s Chromaline in Basic Red applied with a flat 212 brush. Makeup artist Maud Laceppe revealed on Instagram that the look is designed for a cool girl with an opinion.
