The MFW SS16 Look: Colour Play

Selfie-worthy perfection may have been the order of the day at Dolce & Gabbana, but for those of us who were expecting a more sedate affair, Milan was surprisingly full of colour. Spring/Summer is always the perfect season for playful shades and pops of bright, so be prepared to lead the way with some runway inspiration.

For those who like a flash of understated colour, Charlotte Tilbury’s pretty, bronze-eyed look at Etro was absolutely perfect. To take the look from backstage to home, simply use the Eye Blender Brush to apply a soft wash of bronze colour over the eyes and up to the eyebrows, then smudge under the lower lash line to finish. The Golden Goddess Palette has a gorgeous array of bronze hues that we just can’t get enough of.

Magpies should look to Prada for inspiration in the upcoming season where Lead Make-Up Artist, Pat McGrath, painted lips a striking solid gold. The Midas-touch look might be a little avant-garde for daily wear, but a dash of colour on the eyelids courtesy of Dior Addict Fluid Shadow in Phoenix, or a hint of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick on the cheeks can still turn any look golden.

Lucia Pieroni took an artistic approach to eye colour at Missoni with painted swathes of turquoise, rich blue or yellow over the eyes and up into the brows. It was the perfect follow on from our obsession with blue backstage at London Fashion Week, and can easily be modified and recreated at home with the dazzling array of colours in the By Terry Eye Designer Palette Fall 2015.

Meanwhile at MaxMara, Tom Pecheaux created a bold Brit Pop eye. Pink or green framed the eye area, encompassing the brow before moving downwards beyond the lower lash line, for full-on, dynamic colour. Let your inner ‘90s child out to play with Tom Ford’s Runway Color; it’s ideal for recreating this show-stopping look.
