partyPERFECT Mastering NYFW If we learnt anything from the runways of New York Fashion Week, it’s that colour should be embraced this season, writes Tamille Head. OPPOSITES ATTRACT The age-old theory rings true when it comes to applying colour to your makeup look. To really make those peepers pop, look to the colour wheel and choose the shade sitting directly opposite your eye colour. “For blue eyes, opt for orange hues, coppers, bronzes and warm-based reds,” says Brisbane based makeup artist, Mia Connor. KEEP IT SIMPLE The biggest thing to remember when it comes to colour, is that less is more. Choose one feature such as lips or eyes, and make that the focal point, Mia says. “Whether it is a pop lip or a splash of colour in your eyeshadows, don’t do both!” DON’T BE AFRAID TO CLASH It’s a risk, but sometimes it just works. Throw all the rules you’ve been told about colour out the window. Think red lips with blue shadow on the eyes, as seen at Anna Sui. Keep the rest of your makeup fresh and light for a look that’s somehow subtle yet bold.

BABY STEPS “If colour is intimidating, start with a soft colour and slowly work your way up to bolder shades,” says Brisbane makeup artist, Penny Antuar. Gradually ease your way into statement saturation by dabbing a bright shade in the corner of the eyes, or experiment with an eyeliner in a deep blue or forest green.

PERFECT THE BASE “When it comes to colour on the eyes, it’s all about perfecting your base,” Penny says. Creating a clean canvas and toning down the rest of your makeup will allow those bold shadow colours to really pop.
