Spring is the time for trying new things, non? Make-up not the least. There were some pretty cool looks on the catwalk for S/S15; one of my favourites being the pop-art look. Everywhere from Fendi and Dior, to Peter Som and Max Mara, showed bright, modern eye make-up reminiscent of Rothko paintings. For my own take on the look, I went for a blue-toned, almost lilac lip colour (MAC'S Snob) and some messy red stripes under my eyes, with a thin black cat-eye on top. What I love about doing shiz like this to my face is that I feel like something out of The Tribe (if you're too young to remember what that is, then god help me) but also like a character from a Lichtenstein comic painting. Try to stick to one or two primary colours, and focus on making the skin surrounding your art as dewy and flawless as possible, so that it really pops (see what I did there? Okay, sorry). The details can be geometric, colourful, or unexpected; think statement lines of colour or upside-down eyeliner. But most of all, you just want to have fun with a look like this. Think of it as a taster for all the glorious, crazy festival looks that are on their way, and just do whatever you feel like.
