Party-ready pigments! We’re loving these disco-lids.

It’s time to ditch the dull eye shadow ladies. For spring/summer eyelids on the catwalk were flooded with colour. Frightened? Don’t be, the girls at EW HQ can give you a master class in how to rock the look- with a little help from Dior.

EW’s Alexandra goes for iridescent olive green, while Annah opts for a smoked violet- just dreamy!


Green works beautifully with Alexandra’s chestnut hair and tanned complexion.

Annah is our purple pin-up. From lilac and violette through to aubergine, purple shades are great on blondes and give warmth to her milky complexion.

 Application tricks:

For high-voltage pigment with serious staying power, the key is to wet the eye shadow brush then dab the shadow onto the eyelid- see how the colour pops.

Pair coloured shadow with a slick of liner. Remember to keep tight to the lash line.
