Beauty tips: dusty eyes for winter

Get the sultry feline look with artfully smudged eye makeup

If you’re not so much leaping into the new year as dragging yourself grimly through the winter, then the dusty eye is for you. At Roberto Cavalli, models wore a feline eye with black liner across the top, and brown along the bottom lash line, with brown smudged gently up across the lid and down below the lashes. Rather than the vampy sexiness of a charcoal smoky eye, this adapted version suggests a more subtle exhausted elegance.

Custom is always right

The big word in beauty this year? Customisation. Look out for Clinique’s interchangeable iD Active Cartridges system and specialised skincare 
from the Buff, while Schwarzkopf is trialling a device that detects the molecular structure and moisture levels of hair.

Winter chapter

Cica, from the French word ‘to heal’, has been used for centuries to treat burns and irritated skin. And Google searches for it have risen by 800% since 2016. To heal winter skin, start with Decléor’s new Cica-Botanic Balm.

The spray we were

The way we apply perfume is changing. Andrea Rickard at the Perfume Shop told Harper’s Bazaar that Mugler Perfuming Pens and YSL Black Opium Clicks are a sell-out. This year look out for perfumed powders, solid sticks, cushions and tissues.
