Eye Shimmer Returns With a Vengeance for Fall


Eye shimmer is a tough part of the makeup world to tackle. Usually when you wear it, you risk looking like an eighth-grader who got gussied up for a middle-school dance. But this season's runways proved that a grown-up girl could use some sparkle and still look divine. The peepers at Carolina Herrera were saturated in a glistening purple and bronze combination. Elie Tahari and Ports 1961 both coated lids in gold hues, while Adam and Badgley Mischka stayed with the metallic family and opted for copper tones. Sophie Theallet lined her lids with white. And pastels also showed up — in blue at Jason Wu and pink at Preen — for perfectly primped Winter Wonderland looks. Shimmer has grown up — it's for the everywoman this fall.
