Trend Alert: Eye COLOR
July 26, 2005
Although black and brown are always in style, bright splashes of eye color are fun and wearable on most any face. By wearing jewel tones, you can update a classic look and make your eyes pop. Start simple if you have to and use colored eye liners on a bronzed or neutral face (otherwise you can look like an Easter eg). Delux Beauty makes great blendable liners, and MAC has recently come out with Fluidline, a smooth gel formula in Shade (deep, cool green), Royal Wink (blue) and 10 other fun colors. Many beauty experts advise against using colored mascaras for a professional day look. But here’s one way to tone it down: Apply the colored mascara, then tip it with black. That way the color stays close to the lashes. For the more daring, try Nars eye shadows in Santorini (violet) or Night Flight (blue), which can be applied sheerly or layered.
