Aqua eyes

20 May

Under the sea is in. That’s the official view from magazines from Cosmopolitan to Elle, and let’s be honest, who didn’t want to be a pretty girl with a tail after watching The Little Mermaid?

Leaving aside the fact I am absolutely terrified of fish, I’m a big fan of this shimmery, aquatic look, not least because it’s a bit of a break from those recurrent summer trends: Tribal! Summer brights! White!

It’s also quite a fun trend to translate to make-up with lots of shiny turquoise, green, blue and gold colours. Below I used gold eye shadow from Mac, Urban Decay eye shadow in turquoise and a bluey-green No7 eye liner to create a subtle pearlescent look, blending the colours together and OF COURSE adding a few tonnes of Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara (ever since Hilary Alexander complimented my eyelashes I swear by it!)
