Coloured make up has always been quite daunting to experiment with and probably one of the reasons why you only really see me with neutrals - unless it's a sneaky cheek or lip tint. But my little folder of beauty looks have been overflowing with pigmented pops of eyeshadows - and not in any girlish way at all. Start off small and build from there - I've been mostly using orangey tones and mixing in Shu Uemura's blush on the lids for that extra peachy glow. But, colour is colour - and the only way to properly approach it, is to go all in. I picked my 4 favourite colours and Panda did the rest.
Think BOWIE's Life on Mars and PAT McGRAW's Brooklyn Diner takeover;
"DISCO PUNKS & GRUNGE PRINCESSES".
For first timers.. orangey/earthy tones for brown eyes, pinks for blue and purpley for greens.
And for those who are after a good boogie time excellent, you can recreate these looks at the Shu Uemura counter exclusive to David Jones.
Ps. Not to choose favourites but I've got a soft spot for the pink.
