Here’s how to get a cleaner take on the classic, inspired by the makeup on the Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2015 runway.

Add dimension to the eye area
Keep the look clean by using a neutral colour – the pale copper-peach in Dior 5 Couleurs State of Gold eyeshadow palette in #576 Eternal Gold ($104) is a good pick – all over your eyelids and a darker hue, such as purple-taupe, on your bottom lash lines. The final touch: a dab of shimmery colour on the inner corners of your eyes to brighten the look.
Get a flawless base
Brighten and even out your complexion with Kose Infinity Royal Flower Collection 2015 Compact Powder ($130) and Color Me ($75). The latter is a sonic makeup applicator that mimics the rapid finger-tapping motion makeup artists use to apply foundation, creating an immaculate finish.
Define your eyes
Line both your top and bottom waterlines, then apply a coat – or two – of mascara to open up your eyes. Our suggestion? Grab Lancome Hypnose Mascara Basic Set ($50), which gets you a mini version of the brand’s Le Crayon Khol in #01 Noir, a full-sized Hypnose Mascara and a travel-size Bi-facil Double-action Eye Makeup Remover. Here’s a tip: Let the mascara wand lightly touch your lash lines as you coat the bottom lashes; this adds definition to your lash lines and makes them appear darker.
