The gentlest of eye flicks here, a moody charcoal rather than a fierce black. At Victoria Beckham they teased eye shadow across the lids with a fingertip, pushing it out at the corner like an afterthought, with mascara just at the roots of the lashes, for definition rather than glamour. But it’s possible to go full-on sultry by layering with a pencil or shadow stick, going day to night with another layer of grey.
