The combination of both warm and cool tones mean that it can suit any eye colour or skintone
Blue may be the colour of the season when it comes to this spring but is it something that anyone can wear? Well, in the case of Pat McGrath’s look for the Versace couture show the answer would be yes, as the combination of both warm and cool tones mean that it can suit any eye colour or skintone. Accent shades are also a great way to introduce a pop of colour to your makeup routine if you’re not used to wearing it – especially when framed by classic black liner and mascara to give definition and contrast.
To begin recreating this look, start out with a clean fresh base and swap blusher for contouring using a matte, neutral shader and angled contouring brush such as MUA’s F6 Blusher and Contouring brush (1). If you don’t have an angled brush you can squeeze the bristles at the base of a normal powder brush to stiffen and fan them out for added control.
For eyes choose a warm, golden flecked beige eye shadow (2), about two-to-three tones deeper than your own skintone. Blend this around the eye, into the socket line and along the lower lash line as well. For the pop of blue, try Wet n Wild’s Coloricon pencil in Sky Blue (3) taking it up from the tear duct to where lashes begin.
To finish and frame eyes, black liner was used along the outer top lashes and also in the water line followed by strip lashes, although a few coats of good mascara will work just as well. Polish off the whole thing using a moisturising nude lipstick like Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Canotier (4).
