A scan of social media of late leaves you awash in intense eye looks. It would seem that a minimum of four eyeshadows, two blending brushes, and an understanding of what a “cut crease” means is par for the course, even for the most everyday eye. Don’t get us wrong, we’re not throwing any shade on the idea of multiple shades for eyes, but occasionally we long for a decidedly more low-maintenance look.
And that’s where we know we can rely on our Global Beauty Director, Violette. She’s always ready to throw the “shoulds” out the window: Should I contour my eyes? Do I need a blending brush? In Violette’s world, you swipe as you see fit. Here, she shows London lifestyle blogger Lucy Williams how to get an effortless-looking hint of natural sparkle, for a look that’s both easy on and for the eyes. So for the days when you can’t fathom blending to infinity, you’ll be glad to have this across-the-pond inspired look at the ready.
