Powerful eyes for the drabbest of skies

Nothing shrugs off dreary weather like a pair of luminous eyes


Galactic glare

Blast away all things grey with this kaleidoscopic 16-colour palette from NYX. These velvety rainbow-inspired tones will stick it to those skies in a single swipe, so next time the drizzle bites, emblazon your lids with a splash of neon – we guarantee it will make you feel lots less gloomy about all that wet.

Pretty in pink

Happy cuffing season! Does this mean that romance is in the air? Or on its way? Hello? *listens to echoes* Anyway, it’s a good excuse to p-p-pepper your peepers in all manner of pinks – such as the ones found in Net-a-Porter’s holy trinity of high romance: plum, millennial and blush – all housed in eco-friendly casing.

Ice queen

Banish the frosty blues in a magical sort of way and make like a radiant mythical creature – YSL’s couture palette will dress your eyes up in satiny oceanic colour – we love these dreamy swishes of lake blues and shimmery greens.

Sensual smudges

Inspired by Ady Fidelin – the trailblazing first black model to be featured in a fashion magazine – the only downside with NARS’ Love Game palette is that you can’t wear all the shades at once. Forest green, rich burgundy, beaming sapphire – where on earth do we even begin? 

£45, Space.NK
