The shadows of the season
Have you noticed fall’s pink shadows? Whether worn on your cheeks or eyelids, their effect is like an instant burst of radiance. And what of the girlish look they help you achieve? So refreshing! Here are our recommendations for achieving that lovely glow.
So much choice
Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow Eye Shadows, $25 each, $39 for a duo, and $50 for a trio.
And finally, our chance to give you a little tip: if ever you feel intimidated by a hue because it’s eccentric, or maybe on the darker side, apply a translucent white shadow over it. The result? A beautiful veil that makes your makeup look more discreet, while adding depth to it, too.
Guerlain Écrin 2 Couleurs in (Cygne Blanc), $51 at Guerlain counters starting November 1st.
(Also prime candidates for your eyelids: these lovely monochrome palettes, which are all inspired by roses, picked at CHANEL.)
Ready for anything
MAC Cosmetics Brooke Shields Crème Color Base, $37 at MAC counters and online until October 30th.
Pink with envy
And because we took on the pink cheek trend as soon as we noticed it, here’s our ultimate recommendation: the hue right in the middle of this palette. Its colour is rich, but doesn’t leave behind any powdery lines. And its finish? Silky smooth. Plus, you’ll be happy to know that its neighbours also offer a worthy performance. Use them to define your face, or simply for a bit of colour on your cheeks—perfect for any occasion. Tarte Pin Up Girl Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette, $50 at Sephora
