Be a Disco Diva with BLUE eyeshadow

BLUE eyeshadow has always conjured up images of eighties disco divas, schoolgirls who have just discovered make-up and the perennially unused shades in beauty palettes - but not any more. For spring/summer 2014, make-up artists took shades of azure, aqua, sapphire and sky and made them new again, whether as a flash of electric blue on the lower lash line or in bold blocks of opaque colour across the lids.
The trick, for making the look modern? Dick Page, who created the blue-eyed looks at Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tess Giberson, kept other make-up to a minimum to let the eyes really stand out, whilst Pat McGrath applied the colour in graphic blocks across the lids to prevent it from looking too retro.

All you need for spring/summer 2014 is a black eyeliner

All you need for spring/summer 2014 is a slick of black eyeliner and plenty of attitude. Forget pretty flicks or retro wings, it's all about a rebellious streak along the lower lash line or an almond shape in smudgy kohl.
The perfect partner for the season's pared-back beauty trend - carry your eyeliner with you to take the look from raw to rebellious - the new graphic black eyes look best paired with natural-looking skin and mascara-free lashes, a bad-girl take on classic beauty. From the new places to wear your liner - think under the eyes at Carven or right into the inner corners at Missoni - to the tomboy-referenced look at Stella McCartney.
“She’s an effortless ‘urban’ who likes her make-up in a lived in way… she finds perfection trashy,” said Terry Barber of spring/summer 2014's Just Cavalli girl. Creating a youthful glow on the skin, Barber used MAC's Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline to create a lived-in, almond-shaped eye as opposed to the more classic feline flick.
