Spring 2009 make-up trends: ink blue eyes
It's out with smoky eyes and in with this summer's take on black: inky blue. Softer than intense black and practically translucent, inky blue eyes will bring a fresh touch to your face. There are no clear, precise lines, instead the textures of eyeshadow and kohl blend for a natural but sophisticated effect.
To obtain a translucent effect, take a tip from the experts and apply a little kohl and bluish shadow, then use a cotton bud soaked in make-up remover to fade and blend the two. A second option is to apply eyeliner
along the length of your lashes then blend it with your finger.
, the new 5-colour eye palette from Yves Saint Laurent
, contains five bold shades (purple, indigo, turquoise, yellow and ochre) to draw attention to your peepers.
