Shine emerged as a key trend on spring runways, with silver being the universal go-to choice for achieving a luminous, iridescent effect. At Vera Wang, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni took as her inspiration Wang’s artful jeweled necklaces and belts, brushing delicate arcs of silver on the eye, offset by a touch of lip gloss and black mascara. At Giorgio Armani, Linda Cantello was after a “hot, steamy feeling,” highlighting charcoal eyes with silver accents. Silver took on a more rock ’n’ roll vibe at Doo.Ri and Karl Lagerfeld, with deep silver extending out into smoky eyes at the former and rimmed in black liner for a feline look at the latter.
