mascara. Applying a red lipstick as a stain is so flattering on everyone. Simply take a little of the product on to your finger and press the colour on to your lips. Take a clean cotton bud and dip in to the micellar water and tidy up the edges. If you prefer making up your eyes rather than your lips then fear not, there are plenty of trends out there for you. My current favourite is using burnt oranges and tangerine colours as eyeshadows. This trend obviously isn’t for the faint of heart. Orange eyeshadow can really make blue eyes pop and will look great on all eye colours. Mix the colours to add depth with perhaps browns, greys, blues or deep reds, followed with black eyeliner on both the top and bottom lashes. You could try and pale shimmer shade across the entire eyelid and then add a little burnt orange to the

summery and very flattering on you. Another (almost) effortless trend that will be making an appearance this Spring/Summer will be elongated eyeliner. Luckily, for those of us who cannot seem to get a straight line perfectly even, this seasons trend is smudged eyeliner. YES!! Simply draw on your eyeliner with a kohl pencil and slightly wing it out, then grab a cotton bud and blend and smudge it so it is much softer. Another tip is to warm the pencil up on the back of your hand first. This will make the pencil go on easier and will be more gentle on your eyes. I love dewy, fresh looking skin so I am so happy that this is still a trend. Instead of laying your face with matte foundatins and powder, a fresher approach has been happening recently. Apply a thin layer of tinted moisturiser or a light foundation such as Chanel Vitalumière and only add powder where you may get shiny, such as the nose, chin and under eyes. Add a little cream highlighter to the cupids bow and just below your brow bone to give a subtle glow.

KV - What inspired you to start your own brand? EK - I showed my final collection at college there was a lot

of interest in Greece. So I decided to make a small pilot

collection to see if there was enough interest from buyers.

I also wanted to create a brand that looks at products as

I also am fascinated by leather, its many forms and the endless possibilities it allows the designed to have. KV - Do you look to anyone in particular for inspiration? EK - Using basic geometries and the most elemental of materials,

the Belgian designer Michael Verheyden creates objects of sublime beauty and remarkable spiritual power.” Michael

Verheyden’s designs focus on simplicity and the material qualities to create something beautiful. He works with leather, marble and metal. I am really interested on the sensual aspect of materials and elemental forms to showcase the richness of the product, which is something I see in Verheyden’s work. KV - How does living in London inspire your collections? EK - The city’s size, its diverse cultures and a sense of chaos,

have placed London in the center of the fashion industry.

What I am mostly drawn too is the architecture, the balance between traditional and modern and how this I can create a product that fits in this system. KV - What has been the highlight of your career so far? EK - A significant highlight in my career has been designing

a clutch bag with marble and leather for the Museum of

Cycladic Art in Athens. I love it when history, art and fashion all come together to create a meaningful product. KV - What is next for Elena Karavasili? EK - I want to focus on growing the brand in the UK

and create a loyal brand following. After that I would love to expand my range of accessories and keep on experimenting with unconventional materials.
