Cara Delevingne’s Color Alert


Image: Tom Ford

There is a shade of eyeshadow that screams cool and has become known in inner beauty circles as mink. We have often seen this sultry shade on a certain Miss Cara Delevingne, whether she is on the red carpet or shooting a Tom Ford ad campaign.


Envisage a soft gray (think of seals), mixed with an earthy brown, and just a tiny pinch of violet, and you have the softest, ashy, mink-delicious shade.

This color makes for a warm and effortless smoky eye and works harmoniously on blondes and brunettes alike. I have found a beautiful version of this mink and it comes in a cream to powder eyeshadow formula from the new Clarins Ombre Matte collection in 04 Rosewood.


The smudgy, soot-like consistency makes for a seamless blend over the eyelids and whether you apply it with your eyeshadow blending brush or your fingertips, it creates an off-duty model appeal. Pair it with lashings of mascara and you have edgy eyelids in two minutes flat that last all night.
