“One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art,” Oscar Wilde said. Does eye make-up count? Because this season’s strongest trend for your lids is all about bright colours, loud strokes and vibrant palettes that wouldn’t look out of place in a gallery. Taking cues from pop and abstract art (think Warhol and Mondrian) and expressionism (oh, hi Jackson Pollock), make-up artist Pat McGrath brought fingerpainting fun onto the runway at Marni’s spring/summer 2018 show with streaky, across-the-brow colour blocking.
Rachel Comey paid homage to the artistic world with electric blue lashes and swathes of splashy hues, while Pam Hogg opted for fiery yellow lids (and scarlet pouts to boot). The overall effect was one of experimentation, audacity and drama—and we’re totally on board with that. Be it art, make-up or everyday life, it’s time to play bold.
