The Red-Carpet Queen of Shades

by Joanne Delaney


The Grammys this year has showcased a new makeup trend for Spring 2018. It seems that the “less-is-more” look has returned and is here to stay. Women are staying away from the usual dramatic smoky eye and glamorous bold lip and opted instead for a fresh, natural look. Mauve is definitely the Queen of Shades - suddenly minimalist nudes are being replaced with more vibrant hues of pink and purple. Celebrities are opting for glossy mauve lips, a flush of rosy blush and subtle mauve eyes, allowing their own features to shine… Julia Michaels decided to go for all three at the Grammys, matching her makeup look with her mauve gown and looked amazing! You can recreate this red-carpet trend easily by using these three IsaDora products:

IsaDora Perfect Eyes in Majestic Mauve 10.95

Celebrities such as Katie Holmes and Miley Cyrus put a spin on the classic smoky eye by replacing gold with a beautiful shade of mauve. If romantic glamour is the look you want, then the Perfect Eyes eyeshadow in Majestic Mauve is perfect for you! This shade creates a soft yet sultry look- it adds definition to your eyes without sabotaging a fresh-faced look. Just a sweep of this shade across your lid will add colour, drawing attention to your eyes without being overpowering!

IsaDora Face Sculptor Strobing in Cool Pink 21.95

Celebrities ditched the bronzed look and instead opted for light and sheer porcelain skin. To create a healthy flush like celebrities Camilla Cabella and Dakota Johnson, add a touch of cool pink on the apples of the cheeks followed by a gentle sweep of highlighter using the IsaDora Face Sculptor – this will add some warmth and colour to a minimal makeup look.

IsaDora Twist Up Gloss Lip in Toffee Pop 12.95


Lips have been very subdued on the red carpet this year. Celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen and Lana Del Rey have opted for soft mauve and glossy nude lips. This shade Toffee Pop in the IsaDora Twist Up Gloss is a fun and modern spin on conventional nude shades. This deep mauve also makes it easy to achieve a “natural, but better look” by using it to line the outer lip-line!
