Winnie Harlow at Cannes 2019
With nature blooming all around us, there's a celebration of vibrant colours, making summer the perfect time to have fun with make-up. While showcasing their spring/summer collections, fashion houses didn't hesitate to accent their models’ looks with playful splashes of colour on the eyes. Also, our Instagram feeds continue to remind us colour is in again and subtlety can be overrated. It seems there isn’t a better time to put down that neutral palette down, as the bright-hued eyeshadow trend is here to stay.
As celebrities and influencers, whether Hollywood A-listers or regional darlings, have been demonstrating, energetic eyeshadow colours are impactful, captivating and can really enhance a woman’s beauty and bring out her eyes.
In addition to the colours of the rainbow, we’ve seen 80s-inspired hues, plus jewel tones like emerald green and all shades of blue, the perfect homage to the beach season. We’ve also spotted pops of purple, as seen on Shanina Shaik, and celebrities looking seriously pretty in pink, like Taylor Hill and Nathalie Fanj.
Then there were make-up artists Wendi Miyake and Vincent Oquendo confirming why they are believers in tangerine dreams while creating looks for Winnie Harlow and Kourtney Kardashian. Selena Gomez’s make-up maven Hung Vanngo showed how lime green brings a strong eyeshadow game, while Karen Wazen Bekhazi made the case for yellow.

While these strong shades can look fantastic with winged eyeliner, a simple wash of colour across the eyelid, whether matte or imbued with some sparkle, is enough to get those heads turning.
