While the stormy weather and all time temperature highs may not make you think of Autumn, Lancome is doing its best to drive away those summer blahs with their latest Fall look. Blue, red and gold are the colours to embrace according to head make-up artist Aaron De Mey. Although methinks that De Mey simply added the red in because he didn’t think blue and gold lipstick would sell. Check out what the collection encompasses and you’ll see what I mean.

“To enhance the eye with a head-turning finish and reinvent the smoky eye with a graphic edge, start by applying pure gold as a base over the whole eyelid before adding structure with bronze. Then draw a line of metallic indigo at the root of the lashes for a stunning graphic effect” explains De Mey. “Declare yourself Indigo, my new black, by layering the mobile eyelid with gold-flecked blue for a liberating, sensual look, vibrant with energy For even more intense, dazzling eyes, moisten the finger before applying gold-shimmering indigo-blue to the eyelid. A French touche par excellence!”
