Get the look of mystery with the ‘ombre eye’ as created by Janell Geason, Aveda Global Artistic Director for Makeup. This look, created for the Autumn/Winter 2016 Leanne Marshall collection, uses a variety of warm hues for a deep intensity of color that flourishes from lash line to brow.

“The woman that wears this look is beautifully strong,” Geason says. “The lids are coated with dusky matte shadows that diffuse into burgundy with a glowing touch of sheen.”
