Have you ever looked at a technicolour striped knit sweater and thought: Yes. This is the beauty look I’m going for.
Who says you can’t match your outfit to your eyeshadow, or at the very least be beautifully inspired by it? The popping yellows, deep indigos and bursts of aquamarine in Missoni’s Spring/Summer 2017 pre-collection were the perfect lush palette for us to play a bit of make-up-dress-up. With this inspiration in tow, we put together a few looks to really make the patterns pop.
Look 1: A different take on matching your lip to your look: play up the patterns by layering lipsticks. A sizzling orange base topped with a dot of fuchsia lacquer will bring your Missoni minidress from midday to midnight.
Look 2: Ditch the classic cat-eye, babe. The new disco-punk look is here and it’s turning tradition on its head. We zero-ed in on the deep green of both the short socks and a zig-zag stripe on the long cardigan and layered a matching under-eye shade with a pencil liner and a sprinkling of glitter.
Look 3: A look for those who have a literal love for lines. We matched the vertical and horizontal combo with a blast of lime green and shimmery purple liner – perfect for any stripe-savvy siren.
Look 4: Channel a dew-kissed rose with this cheeky look. A pink strobing effect, using rose and iridescent pigment, will have you looking like you just rolled fresh out of bed in a flashy flower garden.
Look 5: Our final look is straight from the 60’s in a throwback to Missoni make-up of yesteryear. add a slash of salmon-coloured liner into the crease of the eye for a crackling composition.
