BRIGHT EYES. THE EYE-SOCKING MAKEUP TREND FOR 2018

Hair & Makeup Artist, Amanda Clarke creates a modern makeup look with an emphasis on eye colour inspired by the latest catwalk makeup trends...

Not since Woodstock in '69 has there been as much coloured eye shadow as on the catwalks for 2018. Backstage was like an eye lid spray production line as fashion show makeup artists went colour crazy to create eye-socking eye definition, this summer (see image, below).

How does this look work off the catwalk? Our Hair and Makeup Artist, Amanda Clarke, has interpreted the trend in these fabulously inspirational new images by photographer, Shonay Shote (above).

'I wanted a bright modern abstract eye with flawless skin. To achieve this look I used Urban Decay Full Spectrum and Moondust palettes to create a soft yet bold statement eye which is wearable with a contemporary twist. I’m a fan of Rothko work so it’s a nod in that direction.'

NB. Step away from the blue eye shadow if you actually nodded along to Hendrix in '69.
