Bright Eye Makeup Made Easy With Sonic Sarwate
Multicolour makeup is officially back. If you thought you would never see blue, green or purple eyeshadows again, well I’ve got news. Not only are they back, they are here to stay, at least for the next year or so. But if you’re haunted by big-haired, blue eye-shadowed models of the ’80s, you’ll be happy to know that the modern multicolour is actually beautiful. Think soft clouds of colours merging elegantly with each other. The key is to use a light hand and translucent textures. I got Sonic Sarwate, Global Senior Artist at M.A.C Cosmetics to give talk about how to wear pop colours on the eyes. Read on for his tips:
- Keep your skin minimal. Only cover imperfections but ensure that the skin looks natural.
- Radiant skin looks good with pop colours. Don’t make your skin too dull or matte, but don’t make it frosty or shimmery either. It has to look glowy to go with a pop of colour.
- Don’t add gold or bronze with a bright colour because it will look too heavy and dated.
- If you’re wearing a strong colour on the eyes, then keep your brows soft. You can just fill in the gaps with a few strokes of brow pencil but no more. Or you can simply sweep them up with brow gel.
- Keep mascara to a minimal as well. Say if you’re wearing a pastel blue eyeshadow then black mascara will look too overpowering. You can also simply curl your lashes and leave it at that.
- When applying bright eyeshadow wear it in thin, translucent layers. The sheerness is what modernises this season’s bright eye makeup.
