1 Girl, 4 This- Season Eyes
Give your peepers a bold, A/W’14 makeover with these edgy ideas, as modelled by writer Snehal Fernandes.
As seen on the Gucci A/W’14 runway, shimmery eyes are major news right now! Cop the look by sweeping copper shadow on lids, and dusting the inner corners with gold (this’ll make eyes look bigger). Line the inner rim with a black pencil and use a brush to smudge the colour. Finish with mascara.
Make the whites of your eyes pop with a swipe of gorge blue liner. Trace a line along your upper lash line, winging it out slightly. (Tip: invest in a pencil liner for added control before graduating to powder shadow). Apply silver shadow to the inner corner for extra shine, and complement with tangerine lips and tips.
The swinging ’60s are so back, and with them is the appearance of the thick cat eye. To create a high-impact retro wing, first make gel liner your BFF—it’s easier to apply and stays put longer. To do, start at the inner corner and use a brush to drag colour along the lash line, flicking and extending it past the outer corner of the eye. Now begin from the flick you just created, and work back towards the centre. You want a shape that’s thinner on the outside, and thicker in the middle. Fill in any missing spaces, and finish with generous coats of mascara.
Here’s an easy way to switch up your everyday look— bring in a white liner! Our look features a black, graphic liner on the upper lids, and strong lines of white on the lower. For the top, use a ‘pen’ liner to trace along the lash line for a precise flick. For the bottom, use a white pencil to create a graphic line from above the tear duct, extending it at the ends. Finish with a coral lip.
