Updated: Nov 9, 2019

Colour play confirmed its runway relevance this season- its time to get creative with colour! Bright eyes, lips and cheeks were ever present in 2019-2020 shows bringing more daring, arty creations with it, particular emphasis being placed on the eyes. Notably seen at Dries Van Noten and Rodarte, bold highly pigmented disco eyes and shimmering glitters herald a fun creative energy that’s here to stay.

Teamed with lustrous polished skin, the statement lip is a trusted must for simple sophistication and a well known weapon in the art of sensuality. Update your look by playing with textures, adding powder for a velvet matte pout, a slick of gloss for ultimate glamour or experiment with 2 toned clashing lips.

More (as they say) is more.
