THE EYES (STILL) HAVE IT
After months of focusing on the perfect pout, it’s all about the eyes right now.
When it comes to fashion, girls get psyched to see throwback closet pieces get a little do-over during the season. However, in the beauty world, we can’t let products sit on our vanities the same way we store our clothes since they expire— so the same excitement takes over when our makeup faves get a trend boost.
Just when sporting the ideal pucker has gotten most of our attention lately (think: our obsession with liquid matte lipstick, gradient lips and lip kits), beauty gurus have brought the spotlight back on the eyes this season.
The Fall/winter runways see a minimalist-versus-maximalist approach to dressing up peepers, but it’s not complicated: You can essentially choose your own adventure depending on how subtle or dramatic you want your look to be.
Take your eyeliner, for example: Applying on your waterline might be the easiest way to define your eyes, but smudging it a little will create depth, as seen at Marni—this allows you to be cocktailready in no time. Achieve both techniques with one product, like Revlon’s 2-in1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner in Onyx (P575, SM Beauty Store, SM Makati). But if you wish to take it a notch higher, add crème shadows into the mix. Minimalist eyes call for a nude or light hue: Try Revlon’s Crème Shadow in Praline (P575) to get the same effect seen at Altuzarra and Derek Lam; or create drama by dabbing on a darker shade, like Black Currant (P575), on the outer corners of the eye and swiping a full metallic hue on the center of your lids. Either way, you’re good to go—wherever it
