In October I brought you news of Aveda’s latest cosmetics collection, Passion Flower.
Well here is an example of one of the Petal Essence Single Eye Colors in blue (Cerulean Bloom) that I thought I’d share. It is only the one colour swept across the lids with the light Callalily as a highlighter on the brows.
Make-up artist Adam de Cruz used this shade one of the models at the launch although I do believe he used a blue eyeliner to make the colour pop more:
I think a lot of people fear wearing blue as eye make-up (perhaps it’s because it brings back nightmares of the 80s) but it’s a really nice alternative shade for a smokey eye look. This one is not as bright or bold as other blues that I have, it’s quite greyish actually but oh-so soft and alluring. You have to build it up a fair bit to get a deep colour but it blends well and there is little fall-out too.
The Passion Flower Collection is available in Aveda salons, spas, stores and on www.aveda.co.uk and these eyeshadows cost £11.50 each.
