While the rest of the world is talking about Alexa Chung’s new cat eye tutorial, I would like to invite you to the opposite end of the minimal universe and consider a metallic – or holographic, if you may – party on your eyes, assuming you would embrace it given it’s the party season. I’ve never hidden my almost fetish for hologram (hint 1, hint 2, I don’t think we need a third) and had I not had hooded eyelids I would have so rocked the metallic eyeshadow. I even have a limited edition MAC eyeshadow with hints of blue and bronze, which with the help of the make up artist-sales people at the store looked like an amazing idea but was left to dust in a corner ever since. Better, it is an amazing alternative to the smoky eye for not-blue-eyed women; purple eyeshadow enhances green eyes, whereas blue goes perfectly with brown eyes (or almost black, like mine).
