Abstract beauty is having a moment. It’s the Westwood staple makeup for the shows. Other designers have followed, Celine’s abstract brows and bright colour streaks on the lids for their spring collection, was bold fun and beautiful. For A/W Lanvin did a jet black, painted eye with stippled out edges, for those who are looking for something subtle.
For festival inspiration go full on like Katie Eary, ombré dipped, glitter guilded cowboy girls stood out and shined.
Make-up essentials for those with an artistic flare are, Mac Chromaliners for an intense pop of colour with a gel like formula, they glide on and once they dry they stay all day. Use your finest art brush or your finger for unfinished moulded shapes. They come in 9 vibrant shades. On Jessica I used Mac Chromaline in Basic Red and Black Black, £14.
For the brightest of metallics, nothing beats the flash colour pots from Make up For ever. These thick creamy grease paints are a full coverage formula. Layer with Mac Pigment in Silver for a long-lasting result £17.
The face is a canvas…get painting.
