My newest obsession, zombie like red eyeshadow with a gloss, aka eye gloss.
Burberry Prorsum smudged a subtle version in peach – without a gloss that is – on the lids of the models walking the Spring/Summer 2014 runway, a pretty good match with the sorbet colored clothing that came down the catwalk.
For a more sober tinted wardrobe (like mine!) primarily filled with non-colors such as white, grey and black, a deeper tone of red creates more of a statement, even if it is applied just very subtle. To prevent feeling like a complete goth, I like to ‘wear’ this look with a crisp white cotton shirt or a plain grey t-shirt. A cozy desaturated (light grey?) knit could do too and would give the edgy eyes a soft hint.
Lulu just recently introduced me to a deep red eye gloss by Chanel (from the Venice Collection) that only got sold in 2009. Now until they reissue that brilliant quatro, I am going to have to settle for Clinique Chubby Stick in Richer Raisin, thank you Into The Gloss for this genius tip.
(An eyeshadow and some good old 8 Hour Cream could work as well.)
PS: Don’t use it on the eyes after using it on your lips!
