When it comes to fashion week, although beautiful,  no-make-up-make-up, with Moody shades of onyx, charcoal, and well… black became the overwhelming colour on lids week wide, with three dominant looks appearing again, and again, show after show. Now, before you dismiss the trend, the bold eyes held just enough drama, and wearability for a special event, or Friday night with the girls, while still being technically achievable. A Bridgette-Bardot inspired flick, or a 60s smokey eye worthy of a Silver screen siren? We’ll take part in that.Perfect skin, bare lashes, non-touring, and natural brows, are all well and good, and a skill in itself,

Charcoal tones replace browns, neutrals, and taupes, as the new season colour for smokey eyes. However if you’re going for an intense shadow look, consider placing your shadow before your foundation to avoid excess fall out.
