You may have noticed that khaki is everywhere at the moment, and I'm hoping to join the ranks and be the proud owner of camo jacket sometime in the near future (yes, I am a bandwagon jumper!). So it's no surprise that khaki has hit the runway sweeped over the eyes of the models.
So this week's Trend on Trial is khaki eyes, now I was so convinced that I would rate this look that I actually went out to treat myself to a new khaki eye palette, but unfortunately my little local Boots only stocked bright green shadows, not the look I was going for. Instead, I made do. I actually found, hidden at the back of my make up drawer, a 'jungle green' Rimmel eyeliner, no idea how long I have owned it for, and not the type of product I'd normally use...and, to all you makeup snobs, I wouldn't normally use a years-old product, but sometimes needs must.
It hadn't even occurred to me that khaki may look bruise like, until I read Joanna's feature, and then added my first stroke of eye shadow...it wasn't looking good. But I persevered, and I actually really like the finished look. If you're a regular reader of my Trend on Trial's then you'll know I'm not a coloured eyeshadow fan, remember the blue?
The best thing about this look was that I felt I didn't have to lose my beloved black eyeliner! It's definitely going to be a look I think I will re-create, and it's been a while since I've said that about one of the Trend make up looks!
So what do you think? Will you be giving khaki eyes a go?
