Fiery Eyes For Fall
Last fall, politics felt the Bern. This year, your eye makeup is what will be burning up. Make sure your eye makeup is looking as hot as a beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte this fall by warming up with fiery hues of copper, gold, burgundy and black.
We got to preview the trend of fiery eyes back in February at F/W Fashion Week. At Valentino, makeup queen Pat McGrath went completely futuristic by drawing a burgundy reverse cat-eye beneath the eyes of models and matching it with coordinating lipstick. Vanessa Seward’s collection had graduating cranberry, matte gold, and black shadows topped with smudged black liner and thick lashes. For a romantic take on the look, Alice + Olivia saved burgundy for the lips and added flickering rose gold eyes… our list of these fiery favorites goes on for days.
So, how can one recreate these looks? One option to work with is Urban Decay’s new Naked Heat palette, built just for sizzling hot eyes. Colors like “Scorched” and “En Fuego” beg to be played with. Or, remember that Too Faced Sweet Peach palette you got this spring? Mix up those warm hues for a completely different type of burn. Personally, I can’t wait to layer Anastasia Beverly Hills’ “Sangria” shadow single with some metallic golds and a smoky chocolate outer corner.
The fiery eye trend has a full spectrum to work with, so the look can be tweaked for any occasion or skin tone. If you feel that orange-based shades of red make it look like you have pink eye, channel the soft burgundy eyelids that La Perla gave Kendall Jenner and shoot for a purple-based bordeaux. If wines don’t work for you, try a melted copper. It’s all about making flames that fit you- you can have a peachy keen fiery sheen, or a deep burgundy smolder that burns all night long. Be your hottest self and blaze your own trail with this trend. Where there’s smoke, there’s fiery eyes.
