Why make one statement when you can make 10? Pair liner with colour, with shadow, with stick. Add a statement scarf for good measure.

Foil alert: metallic lacquers, paper and pigment found their way onto many a model’s face at Chanel’s AW20 show. Find your own shape, your own finish, your own golden rules.
The sweet spot between dramatic self-expression and subtlety is found in neutral palettes. Try muted tones shot with grown-up glitter for the halfway house.
Stamp on pigment in bold shades – lipstick, shadow or otherwise. Don’t worry about shape, just wear with confidence.
