1- Monique Lhuillier. Mac makeup artist Nadine Luke did eyes with an african "masai" feel.
I loved the exaggerated shape that makes the eyes look huge. I also really like the mix of the silvery gray color with the golden brown tone.
Another shot from Monique Lhuillier, I think this was favorite look yesterday! Notice how it makes the eyes look so large-paired with a muted lip:
2-Another great look was the playful "schoolgirl" look at BCBG:
MAC'S Lisa Butler (who I've worked with before and is an amazing talent!) used Zoom lash mascara applied with a liner brush along the upper lash lines and gave the focus of the whole look to the eyes. It really gives the eyes a little bit of a "pop" and gave the girls a look that's modern yet with a 50's sensibility. They kept the hair very natural and the models were very young which added to the modern vibe.
How to make it wearable? Add some gloss to the lips and a little blush. Pinks would be great with this eye.
3- Ports 1961- Bright and funky eye... It was a wash of pinkish red cream shadow on the upper eyelid only. Not the most wearable look but fun to look at.
Check out this model backstage at Ports 1961:
Today? We are seeing some lipstick finally!
More to come...
