HOW TO: 3 Ways To Wear Colour

The biggest makeup trend to come off the runway for SS21? All-out colour. From bright, bold lips at Versace and Balmain to dramatic liner at Valentino, the catwalks were awash with vibrant hues and statement looks that feel reflective of our optimistic new mood.

And beauty brands have responded, with neon eyeliners, coloured mascara and a whole spectrum of lip colours to invest in. Whether you fancy trying your hand at coloured eyeliner or want to embrace the purple eyeshadow trend that’s dominating the red carpet, here’s three ways to work the colour makeup trend immediately.
1.

COLOURED EYELINER

The graphic eyeliner trend isn’t going anywhere but for SS21 it’s had a refresh, with classic black lines switched out for brighter hues. Ease yourself in by mixing slick black lines with cobalt blue to create exaggerated cat eyes. Pair with deep red lips and lashings of mascara

BLURRED LIPS

After 18 months, we’re finally embracing the smudged effect brought on by our face masks. This time though, it’s on purpose. Apply to the centre of the lip and smudge outwards for a soft, blurred line that wears well (and doesn’t require constant top ups). Add a shimmering golden eye for after hours.
3.

PURPLE EYESHADOW

There’s no escaping the purple eyeshadow trend this summer. Hot on the heels of our love for anything lilac, has come a new-found appreciation for ‘80s makeup looks. Keep things simple by sweeping across the entire lid, adding a crisp black slick of eyeliner and leave lips soft, dewy and au naturel.
