TWO-TONE EYE SHADOW IS IN
By Maybelle Morgan, 6 April 2018
Let ‘two is better than one’ be your makeup motto this season. You're about to see your face time get twice as playful, just in time for the more subdued months ahead. All eyes are on two-tone shadows, upping the intensity on your 2018 stare. From catwalk to Instagram, it’s a certified beauty win. Whether you’re braving two completely different colours, or going for varying intensities in the same shade, add another dimension to your look like this…
The eyes had it at House of Holland this season, with backstage faces kept au naturel (brushed-up brows and peachy bronzer on the cheeks) to showcase sunset eyeshadow shades with max impact. Neon pops of orange were kept blocky and intense, smudged into the corner of the eye and flicking up towards the end of the brow. Then, a softer gradient rimmed the lower lashline for that 80s-bright look, fit for everything from festivals to nights out.
Your 2018 beauty colour scheme gets a fiery upgrade courtesy of ASOS Insider Sophia, with this ‘more is more’ makeup look. The eyeshadow hybrid is a perfectly blended combination of warm matte orange and dusky crimson, and then to clash it up the right way, Sophia pairs it with a fire-engine-red vinyl lip lacquer and some kitsch cherry pom-pom earrings.

Your best tool for eyeshadow experimentation? It's always going to be a palette. And this eight-parter from Lime Crime is the one to make your subtle foray into the trend. On the top lid, swipe on the rich pumpkin colour, right up to your lid crease. Then complement the shade with a light dust of the mustard yellow shade on your bottom lashline, and finish with a few coats of black mascara.
