Graffiti Beauty: 4 Ways To Wear Bright Edgy Shades This Spring

From SPRAY CANS FOR HAIR to neon for lips, STREET ART is having a DYNAMIC INFLUENCE on beauty right now …





1. L’Oreal Paris has been inspired by the colours on the street to create the Colorista Spray collection to turn hair one of seven shades just for one day (or night), from pink and blue to grey. Fun, experimental and requiring zero commitment, they offer a chance to rebel or throw a colour tantrum without any repercussions. We’re seriously tempted to go pink for spring to match our newly painted living room walls. It’s that whimsical. The Washout tubes of colour, meanwhile, let you try out a new shade for a little longer, as they wash out after one to two weeks. €10.95.



2. YSL’s The Street and I collection features city-inspired bright shades including Vandal Orange (€19) for nails, Rouge Volupté Shine colour pops for lips (€33) in orange, fuchsia and coral, and striking palettes (€55).

3614271684806_Matte_Shaker_Swatch_3793. Lancôme Matte Shakers (€19.50) are neon-bright and brilliant, with a huge amount of colour pigment in a small pot. Seriously matte yet non-drying, they fit in every pocket and purse. Pocket rockets indeed. At Brown Thomas exclusively from March 29; nationwide from late April.


UD_EYE_BASQUIAT_BRIGHTPALETTE_TENANT €42_ALT14. The upcoming Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat collection, inspired by the legendary artist whose work dominated the streets of Manhattan in the 1980s, includes this zingy eye colour palette (€42) with eight new shades. It’s set to be VERY limited edition, we hear – you’ll find it at Debenhams from May 11. And we’re delighted that the Urban Decay standalone store is set to open on Grafton Street mid-June …
