Allure Backstage Spring 2008 makeup trend. Colorful shadowsBright eyes—in nearly every shade of the rainbow—run the gamut from soft to full-on glittery. Nothing says spring more than color which is why this trend is our number one pick for the top trend of the season. Makeup artists dreamed in color this season, dabbing eyes with nearly every shade of the rainbow. Some stuck to a wash of pink and orange on the lids, while others rimmed all around the eyes in energetic shades of green, purple and blue.
Charlotte Tilbury used turquoise glitter on the eyes at Missoni, “we’re doing something a bit more rock and roll, something a little bit more Kate Moss, a little bit more destroyed makeup. At Michael Kors Dick Page used a violet liner, yellow gold highlight on the brow bone, orange on the outer corner of the eye, pink on the lid “so it looks like a little fruit salad effect”.
Michael Kors said he loved the colours “Dick and I sat down and said this is all about this juicy face, so we are really playing with more colour on the eye than we ever have done before. This collection is really about celebrating sunshine and warm weather – optimistic in a word”.
