The lilac and pinky pastel shades at Sophia Webster, inspired by “ethereal ballerina fairies”, were whimsical with dark, fairytale undertones, hinted at by minimal mascara, perfected skin and the addition of a gentle, silvery grey. It’s a slightly haunted look, miles from the sweet, shiny expectations of a traditional sherbetty-coloured eye, and all the more interesting for it.
