Modern beauty reaches new heights with divinely decorative makeup featuring ornamental details that are as wildly creative as they are controlled.
Mismatched eyeshadow makes a statement. Take the trend further by creating a rainbow gradient across both lids using a colourful palette like the Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 2 from Anastasia Beverly Hills.
Elevate a glitter eye by adding a sleek outline. Apply silver sequins, like Sephora Collection’s Loose Glitter in Tinsel, above and below the lid in an exaggerated cat-eye, then line the perimeter with a dramatic black pencil—try the Starring You: Powerpoint Eye Pencil from MAC Cosmetics.
Play with curves for a striking hair look. Using a high-hold gel, such as Alterna’s Caviar Anti-Aging Luxe Crème Gel, create swirls along the face with hair’s front pieces. Embellish the ends with pearl appliques for a dreamy and delicate final touch.
For an unexpected ethereal look, accent your lips with a symmetrical array of iridescent gems. A shimmering shadow swept onto the lids and inner corners—like Fenty Beauty’s Diamond Bomb II All Over Diamond Veil—is the perfect complement.
INSIDE THE LINES
Add an artful edge to lined lips by using a trio of different hues. Kat Von D’s Everlasting Lip Liner in Lemmy, A-Go-Go, and Satellite makes for an impactful colour palette
RAY OF LIGHT
The use of linear shapes forms an imaginative take on cheek makeup. Using a metallic liner, like Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Liquid-Gel Eyeliner in Silver Lining, draw lines of varying sizes radiating down from eyes toward the mouth.
