Beauty tips: punk meets beige

Wide slashes of pointed eyeshadow winged from the eyes of models at Burberry’s SS19 shows, which would have looked terribly dramatic were they not in gentle shades of bronze and taupe. Beige, for so long the safe option, whether on pale eyeshadow or living-room sofa, has turned edgy this season, with typically nude and subtle colours being used in ever less conventional ways. Punk has grown up.
