This fun look first made waves at the Byblos Milano show, and is suitable for all skin tones – just choose the colour combination that suits you. Plus, the models below have brown or dark irises – darker eyes can wear a wider range of makeup hues better than light-coloured eyes because they look more neutral. 

If you have medium skin tone...

There's no colour – pastel or rich – that looks bad on you. So stand out with brights like blue, berries, corals, and even reds.

If you have fair skin tone...

Red eyeliner can make your eyes pop if you're very fair, but skip it if they're bloodshot or puffy; it will make you look as if you've been crying. Use greens and yellows instead.
