I'm seeing a lot of 1950's inspired, structured make up - defined liner with crisp matte red lips. The smokey eye is a perennial favourite, generally with a nude or light lip, but it isn't unheard of this season to pair a heay eye with an equally heavy lip in defiance of the eyes or lip rule of thumb.

There are natural looks too with pretty, ladylike cheeks, luminous and fresh, teamed with a 50's eye, smudged and toned down.

Lashes, particularly classical strip lashes, are a big hit this season, heading for a nod to the early 60's.
