Why spend time honing your smoky eye skills when you slip on a pair of sunglasses with the shadow already built in? At least that’s what Karen Walker thought when she dreamed up her new Eyeshadow collection featuring soft tints and rimless frames designed to accentuate the eye and create the illusion of a wash of color across your lids.
Available today at karenwalker.com and select retailers, the New Zealand-born designer’s new optics include three different styles—Dancer, Love Hangover, and Disco Circus (her personal favorite)—that come in lipgloss-like tints ranging from sheer pink and marigold to full-throttle silver mirrored lenses. The pieces, which all feel very ‘70s-inspired and Penny Lane-like, range from $220 to $250.
“We’ve been playing around with soft colored lenses for some time now and we’ve always loved the interplay between the eye makeup and the lenses.” she told FU. “We felt it gave the impression of the lenses being part of the makeup. Then, we simply removed the rims and softened the colors even more to give the impression of the lenses actually being a light dusting of powder.”
