How To: Watercolour Eye

What is a watercolour eye you ask? Well it’s a colourful, layered look inspired by the light, fluid feel of a watercolour painting.

Yes, it’s bright, yes it’s bold, yes it’s a little bit out there but if you’re looking for a beautiful show-stopping look that screams SPRING then a watercolour eye is for you.

The choice of colours is up to you. Use pastels to tone down the look if bold colours aren’t your thing. Pick colours that complement your eye colour and/or outfit. If you’re going bold on the eye, opt for a more neutral lip and cheek. Pastel eye? Choose a bolder lip.

So go ahead, play with colour and let your creativity rule.
