There's something about the changing seasons that makes neglected products feel alluring again. Take, for example, eyeshadow. Those earthy shades that've gone untouched in your palette — like brick red, warm amber, and leathery brown — suddenly feel fresh again. Plus, more practically, the cooler temps mean the pigment (be it a powder or cream) will actually stick to your lids instead of melting off like they might in mid-July heat.
As if we needed more inspiration, the chicest women spotted on French pavements are giving us soft, smoky eye inspiration in spades. With their camel shearling and worn-in leather, the coolest showgoers at Paris Fashion Week are accessorising their looks with a sweep of colour across their eyelids. And the tones — from marigold to rust — are dreamy for autumn.
