All About The Eyes – Rock & Roll Spring Make Up

One of the key trends that was apparent during the Spring Summer 2013 Fashion Weeks was that there was a rock and roll kind of vibe to the make up. It wasn’t always about perfect lines, but instead, a smudged out smoke. A flash of colour. Coloured liner under the eyes – a fantastic trend for bringing some colour into your look.

The main focus of the season was on the eyes – weather it was black kohl or gorgeous tones of blue – it was all about the eyes. Some of the photos from New York Fashion Week which has just ended, that showcases the Autumn Winter 2013 collections, also seemed to continue the theme, which leads me to believe this trend is here to stay, rather than a quick fad.

Pantone, who are the Gods of colour, have said that *the* colours for 2013 are going to be royal blue, green and purple, which was reflected in many of the make up looks seen at the shows.

I’ve put together a selection of affordable make up that you could use to create a similar look.

    I love all of these looks so much – I think I might base some illustrations on them because they are so pretty! xxx
