Trend of the month: Sea change

Make a splash with shades of aqua shadow — this season’s fresh take on the smoky eye. To dive into this seaworthy trend (seen at Cristian Luppi and Trussardi shows), blend a shimmery shadow from lash line to crease, then anchor the look with black mascara and eyeliner. Pair it with a vivid coral mouth.

Face value
Her enviable figure may have earned her the nickname "The Body," but now that Elle Macpherson is Revlon’s newest global ambassador, her face is taking centre stage. The 45-year-old kicks off her role this fall in advertisements for the company’s latest cosmetics campaign. (Gucci Westman, Revlon’s new artistic director, will do her makeup.) But off-camera, her beauty regimen is decidedly low-key. "I believe that beauty comes from the inside," says the mother of two. "I spend more time having a good laugh with my kids than I do looking in the mirror."

A trip to India was the inspiration for perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena when creating his latest scent for Hermès. With its cool notes of cardamom and vetiver, Un Jardin Après La Mousson transports the wearer to a lush garden after the monsoon rains.
