As Fashion Week made its way from New York to London to Milan and finally to Paris, it seems that one trend remained present across the runways - brightly colored eyeshadow will be huge in Spring 2011.
According to Allure magazine, makeup artist Pat McGrath crafted two different looks for the Nina Ricci and Christian Dior spring shows, but each featured bold-hued eye makeup.
At Nina Ricci, the news source reports that McGrath used fuchsia and red pigments all over the lids, from lashes to eyebrows, and below the lower lash line, while at Dior, she concentrated the color on the lid and kept the shadow below the crease, creating a small yet strong block of color.
In both looks, however, McGrath complemented the bright makeup with black liner and black mascara, which defined the eyes and offered a nice accent to the bold wash of color.
Ladies looking to embrace this bright spring trend should remember that black water-resistant mascara may be your best friend when wearing colorful eye makeup. It will keep lashes from being overwhelmed by the bold pigment and help draw attention to your eyes' beauty.
