Look Lively: Contrasting Colours

Coloured mascaras are big news this winter and can create a subtle twist for daytime make-up. When worn with a bold liner, colours can be clashed for a brave, punk-inspired evening look. Here, I experiment with some great products from some of the best colour brands of the moment.

I used Mac Studio Tech foundation (£22.00) as an all-over base. A slick of Benefit’s F.Y…eye (£17.00) provided a crease-free base for the eyelids. A quick blend of Ruby & Millie’s Duo Concealer (£10.00) hid any unattractive under-eye luggage. After this important prep it was time for the main event in the form of colour-clashing fun!

For Laura’s unusual burnished gold effect, I slicked some of Benefit’s Gilded (a tangerine gold highlighter costing £12.50) all over the lid. This colour is great for green-eyed gals. The Barry M Lengthening Mascara in Shocking Pink (£4.95) made her eye-colour ‘pop’ most attractively.

‘Cleopatra on acid’ was the inspiration for Charlie’s bold look. The beautiful electric-blue liner (£4.50) shade was courtesy of Barry M too. I used it with the same Shocking Pink mascara. Be warned: this look is perhaps more suited to clubbing than the local pub (as we soon found out after the shoot!).

Here, I combined Paul & Joe’s Waterproof Curly Blue Mascara (£15.00) with Nars’ Mudd Club (£18.50), a gorgeous glittery brown pencil. This is a good example of how these techniques could be toned down to make them more wearable for daytime.

Mac’s Liquidlast Liner in Aqualine (£13.00) has been a favourite of mine for a while. Over the summer I wore it to the beach all day and it lasted into the evening! To make it winter-suitable, I used it with Benefit’s new Bad Gal Plum Mascara (£14.50). This shade is perfect for brunettes but would enhance every eye colour nicely.

Using Barry M’s hot pink liquid liner (£4.50) with their Bright Turquoise Lengthening Mascara (£4.95) looked great with Charlie’s hazel eyes.

This graphic look shows how good coloured mascara can look against black. I used a black Mac Liquidlast Liner (£13.00) and the Barry M Shocking Pink Mascara (which was clearly a favourite out of the coloured mascaras).

Great colour combinations! I shall have to play around with some myself once I've found time to go to B and pick up some new colours to play with!
