I remember first learning the word ‘iridescence’.  I was seven and completely hypnotised by the colours of oil on water, like the shimmer on the wings of a blackbird.  The swirls of inky blues and purples completely fascinated me.  Purpley, bluey, black eyes are something we’ll see more of this autumn, either powdered or as a block colour.  So here are Warpaint’s favourite inky iridescence eyes and some of the hottest products to recreate them.

Full on pigment in the form of Sugarpill Cold Chemistry eye shadow palette (£24.99) and Cosmetic Pressed Eyeshadow (£8.50) from addicted to pretty in Velocity blue as well as NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows (£21) in Desdemona burgundy and Giove blue that are just two of the inky shades from this new collection.

Clinique Chubby Sticks (£21) Massive Midnight Blue and Portly Plum are spot on inky colours. Add the All About Shadows quad in Galaxy for ultramarine with highlight and the Clinique Quickliner in Intense Plum for the look. Urban Decay Ink for Eyes Perversion (£15), 24/7 glide-on eye pencils in LSD and Chaos (£15) and Eyeshadow in Psychedelic Sister (£14) gives you a slight neon twist to the inky hues.

Masters of the artful eye, Chanel Illusion D’Ombres in Apparition (£25) and Les Ombre Essentielle in Pulsion (£23) will set you in good stead for that purple black eye. Voodoo Eyeshadow from MUD, available at PAM, is rich in pigment and will give you a matte finish which blends easily.  Diorshow Fusion Mono in Hynotique and Cosmos (£24) are also the perfect inky shades or for a high street choice try TOPSHOP Beauty Eye Duo in Backstage Whisper (£6).

Inky eyes can be deluged with more colour with the use of non-black mascara.  MUFE’s Mascara are long-lasting and smudge-proof, try Smoky Lash 5 (blue) & 6 (plum) (£18.50) or PIXI lash booster mascara blackest blue (£12.50).

Lancôme crayon kohl (£16.50) in Gris Bleu is a precision pencil, KIKO Milano’s  Sportproof Eyeliner (£6.90 in orchid violet, Cargo Swimmables Pencil (£13) in Lochness, Sleek’s Eau La La Pencil in Raisin and Face Stockholm Gel Eyeliner (£22) all deliver a fine line or for a thicker application try TOPSHOP Beauty Molten Eyes in Blue Lagoon (£7).
