Eyeliner goes wild at Costume National & Just Cavalli

Bold eyeliner graced the models at more than few shows these past weeks. Two notables were at Costume National and Just Cavalli.

Personally I've been on quite an eyeliner kick. Not super dark, much as I love it, it rarely works on me, but lots of colors. Silver, grey, brown, copper, green , plum. The new MAC Pearlglides are some of my newest favs. They are fab. Deep or bright depending on which color you choose, smooth and sparkly. Plus they really last. I mentioned the new Victoria's Secret metallic ones once, and the other day posted on the new Smoked eyeliner from Estee Lauder. All of these can help you achieve a bit of the look here. In a more wearable way.

Costume National went gray to the extreme with their eyeliner and it looks a bit odd and messy, but this was on the runway.

Heres some of what was used according to Sally Branka , lead makeup artist:
Eye: “The eye makeup has a lot of structure, but it’s the deconstruction that makes it modern,” Branka said. Opaque slate gray liner rimmed the monochromatic eyes.

Face: To keep the focus on the eyes, the face was left bare using only concealer and invisible set powder.

Lip: Sally toned down lips by blending a touch of concealer into the mouth.

Pro Tip: Mix in a deep taupe or espresso when blending gray shades around the eyes. This will keep the tonal quality more as a true gray.

According to Ms. Branka-
"She's that cool girl—when she walks in the room everyone looks."

Makeup Used: MAC Scene and Gesso eyeshadows and Chromacakes liner.

Just Cavalli went the deepest black rocker girl look and I love it. I saw this picture of Eva Green at Dior, who always rocks this look and always look amazing.I don't know how she does it, but no matter what she wears , she has the deepest rimmed eyes and it works for her. Being gorgeous and French doesn't
hurt either, I guess.
For this look , grab a serious Kohl type pencil .
