Get the Look – David Koma SS14

 David Koma Beauty SS14 BL

Blue was out in full force on the SS14 catwalks. David Koma offered an interesting alternative to the standard sweep of colour with a cat-eye.

A modern take on the classic, this look is really worth experimenting with, and -unlike green lipstick- won’t make you look too freaky.

Liz Earle natural glow

For this look keep the base quite natural as the eyes really draw all of the attention. A sweep of  Liz Earle’s Colour Natural Glow Bronzer (£19.50, John Lewis) gives a sheer hint of colour to the cheekbones and forehead. Use Benefit Gimme Brow (£17.50, Boots) to build up, shape and lightly tint brows, framing the face and eyes.

Estee Lauder Eye Pencil

To carefully construct the rectangular block, lining from one third into the eye line to the outer corner and bringing this into a wing shape towards the eyebrow and join up with four sides use Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Eye Pencil in Midnight Blue (£16, John Lewis). Work with the pencil first to achieve the outline on both eyes to ensure symmetry, removing any errors with a cotton bud, before filling in the almost parallelogram shape with the pencil for a base.

Maybelline Tattoo Eyeshadow in Everlasting Navy.

Continue to build up colour over the block shape using Maybelline Eyestudio Colour Tattoo 24hr eye-shadow in Everlasting Navy (£4.99 at Boots). This long lasting gel eyeshadow, with metallic shimmer, will add drama to the eye. Sweep Nars Shimmer Eyeshadow in Tibet -or Nepal depending on your skin tone (£17, Nars)- across the rest of the lid to accent the eye.

Smashbox Waterproof Mascara

Coat the lashes in Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (£19, Boots) to lengthen and add volume.

Burts Bees

To finish with a natural, Burt’s Bees Hibiscus is nourishing with a hint of colour (£5.99 at Boots).
