The Butterfly Effect

Bold beauty says hello to high summer with absolute aplomb. Think: confident jewel tones and plenty of sparkle (butterflies optional). Say goodbye to subtlety and take make-up inspiration from the kaleidoscopic wings of butterflies. Sweep a bold shade from lid to brow before blending with contrasting colours and topping with glitter. Alternatively, adopt a pared-back approach with a watercolour wash of sunset hues, glass skin and barely-there mascara. The appeal of bold beauty lies in the inability to make mistakes. Layer pearlescent colours, glitter foil and striking shadows to your heart’s content. After all, beauty is in the eye of the make-up brush holder.
