Give eyes a high-carat boost by swapping out basic black and brown for super-flattering, many-faceted jewel tones. Innovative pigment-packed products make achieving a bold, statement-making look easier than ever. From amethyst to emerald to sapphire, here’s how to wear them.
Variations on a Theme
When it comes to lighting up the eyes like jewels, nothing beats the dazzling effect of tone on tone. Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quads offer a range of tonal variations in beautiful, complementary colors, like a topaz palette with shades that go from deep to translucent. Apply the medium shade over the entire lid, building up desired intensity. Sweep the darkest tone into the eye crease and highlight by applying the lightest shade along browbone. For added definition, dampen brush and draw the darkest color in a line along top and bottom lashes. Finish with black mascara.
The New Smoky Eye
Juicy jewel tones give the classic smoky eye new sizzle. Colour Riche Eye Shadow offers a luscious range of intensities that make application easy. We like the amethysts in Sultry Seductress or the shades of blue in Love to Hate Me. Apply the medium shade all over the eye and along lower lash line. Swipe the deepest shade in the palette into eye crease and extend past corner of the eye. Highlight eyes by applying the lightest shade along the browbone. To add an unexpected pop, dot the inner corners of the eye with the contrasting color in the palette. Keep cheeks and lips polished but neutral.
Draw A Line
With color this vibrant, a little goes a long way. Double Extend Eye Illuminator is best for a thin, crisp line, but if you prefer a smudged look, try HiP Studio Secrets™ Color Chrome Eyeliner, which is also highly pigmented and easy to blend. Start at the inner corners and trace along your top lash lines, flicking the line out slightly at the edge. A flash of color along the lash line will emphasize the whites of your eyes so they're instantly brighter.
