Kryolan Red Brown Eye Shadow

I absolutely love this eye look (reminds me a bit of Sam from Pixiwoos) and it’s quite rare for me to want to sit down and copy a look rather than just do my own thing. Partly, it’s because Kryolan (if you visit in store in Covent Garden) has any number of ‘look’ leaflets to guide you through which give you guidelines although I think for me I’d have to adapt it to just the lid rather than below and and around – I don’t see that working out well for me! And of course, it’s not just a simple matter of buying one eye-shadow and hey presto! This is a blend of liner, shadow, some copper and orange sparkle over the top, and mascara. But, it’s a pro range, and the artistry bit is being able to take those things and make this look. So, for me, I’ll adapt it by wearing Matt Shadow in SA131 (above), some black liner smudged on my lash line, black kohl and maybe a bit of an orange shimmery shade from one of my palettes to finish. I’m also a bit in love with the Freesia Lip N Cheek that is the very faintest pink toffee-ish shade that works better on cheeks than lips.

Kryolan Lips Stain Electro

A bit of a shout out for this shade of lip stain (Electro) that really brings the complexion to life. It’s not as full-on as it looks in the tube once it’s on your lips but you can build to bold if you want. Anything coral with a dash of pink really seems to suit me and every single time I wear this, I get a compliment. Kryolan doesn’t pop up in most consumer’s heads as a place to look for new make-up, partly because they do hardly any marketing and what they do do is pointed at professionals. How this brand stays under the consumer radar as much as it does is a mystery – they manufacture make-up for so many of our favourite brands and they’re one of the most successful make-up brands in the world.
