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.

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."
