Amidst the striking jewel tones of the clothing and the classic feel of the rounded spectacle frames, there’s something even more striking that stands out in Jil Sander’s campaign for the fall 2011 season: the makeup. Having just made the dramatic change to red hair myself, strong eyeshadows of blue and green are finding new life in my makeup collection. Not that this particular bold shade of aquamarine can’t work for any hair colour – you mostly need to try it against your eye colour to ensure it suits you.
The most striking thing about the eye makeup in this shot is that it’s applied solidly as a thick line to the upper lid: you can achieve this using a dry eyeshadow and a wet makeup brush if you can’t find a liquid version of the colour.
