“Your tongue may be able to hide the truth, but your eyes will never lie!”
So says Michail Bulgakov, one of the most famous authors of Russian literature. Indeed, looking into someone’s eyes is often the only way to really discover that person’s thoughts and feelings. However, makeup can be truly magical: the infinite color combinations we apply to our eyes (just as we do to our lips) can say a lot about us. It can reveal aspects of our personality or, more simply, our predisposition to follow the latest makeup trends.
The Spring/Summer 2018 runways were awash with this year’s most playful trend: two-tone makeup. Why settle for a single shade when you can explore unique combinations of electric hues? Those who wish to be bold, for example, will go for pop colors like pink and fuchsia.

Also, blue and green, two colors that represent the warmer season’s positive energy very well, are paired to give create very cool smokey eyes. Chanel knows this all too well, and has chosen shades of aquamarine as the focal point of its beauty look for the spring collection, while beauty addicts who are more willing to experiment with new makeup looks won’t be able to do without adding a touch of brightness to the classic smokey eye which has always focused on black and brown.

And how about dusty rose that blends into brown? This is the more romantic option dedicated to those who don’t love excess and prefer soft shades that exude a vintage allure.
Beginners can get excited by starting with the classic black smokey eye to then liven up with either red or green, depending on what they’re wearing.
Experts are convinced that, more and more, makeup is becoming a veritable accessory, so there’s nothing better than coordinating it with the rest of your outfit. You’ll need a bit of extra care on application: to add a dramatic accent to your makeup or to enhance your eyes, color the upper lash line and eye contour with a darker powder. The eyelid will become your palette where you can experiment chromatic combinations and give life to a truly personalized eye makeup look.
Looking for the perfect colors for your eye makeup?
We suggest choosing from the shades that make up these brand-new palettes.
