We may not be the beauty editors of a national glossy magazine, but as cosmetics industry professionals, we are avid readers of beauty trade publications and insider blogs, so we typically get a preview of fashion and makeup trends six months before we see some variation of those looks out on the street. New York Fall Fashion Week showed some makeup trends we loved (plum lips, cat’s eye liner) and some that just made us roll our eyes (horrible contrasting two-toned makeup where the eyes and lips clashed; red eyeliner; smoky eyes that looked like injuries, not makeup), and now we’re seeing them on real people.

One trend stood out for us, and it can be achieved in minutes using colorOn…Professional instant eye makeup and our Metallic Glitters or Smooth Shimmer loose mineral pigments. At Diane Von Furstenberg’s show, models’ smoky eyes really popped, thanks to an aqua green shimmer underneath the lower lashes drawn from the inner corner all the way out to the far edge.

Choose ColorOn’s Noche, a softly smoky and seductive wash of black and deep grey shadows as your base for this look. You can take an eye liner brush and use the extra white creamy mineral pigment left on the protective cover to line under your eyes.

Then, add our Metallic Glitter in Sky Blue or our Smooth Shimmer in Peacock Blue under the eyes to achieve the same sparkly smoky eye, setting the look with Get Set Powder #2, which adds even more shine. You can choose any of our Metallic Glitters or Smooth Shimmers to achieve the look with a different shade of “pop” to contract with your eye color, or to complement an outfit.

As show on the runway, eyes this strong call for a nearly naked face and a neutral or nude lip. No bright blush or red lips to detract from the artistry of this eye look!
