Yesterday, Burberry fêted the opening of its shiny new flagship store in Shanghai. Naturally, it’s not a party for the brand without some signature Londoners in tow, so models (and off-duty pals)Cara DelevingneandSuki Waterhousewent along for the fun, dressed in head-to-toe Prorsum and their very best signature pouts.
But both of the girls were wearing rosy-colored shadow, which made a very chic debut on the Burberry spring runway. For Fall, it morphed into a more mauve-berry tone. Pinks and berry colors are an interesting micro-trend from backstage, but it prompted a little bit of debate between beauty editors: Could this actually be pulled off in real life, or would we all just look sickly?
If we look more closely at how Suki and Cara wear it here, it’s pretty obvious that there’s a rosy tint to the eyes. But—and this is arguably the important part—it’s not the only visible color. In fact, there’s a smoky grey-plum dusted onto the upper, outer corners, which adds depth and dimension. That same color was brought underneath the bottom lash line—just on the bottom half of the eye for Suki, and all the way for Cara. As is the golden rule with any tricky color, make sure you use a light hand with your shadow brushes. A duo fibre product, which utilizes two different lengths of hair in the same brush, will help you create a sheer, buildable layer without going overboard.
Everything else about the beauty was kept simple—hydrated, glowing lips, bare, luminous complexions, and tousled, wavy locks. Oh, and who could forget that most essential Brit beauty feature? Major eyebrows.
