Be inspired by the seductive, smouldering make-up of Brigitte Bardot. The pure siren appeal of those black eyeliner flicks is back…
For the Summer / Spring collections designers referenced the French style icon, Brigitte Bardot, and her irresistible eyeliner flicks.
At Dolce and Gabbana and Ruffian, traditional eyeliner flicks were bold and sexy. While playful and inventive variations of the eyeliner flick appeared at Badgley Mischa, Marios Schwab and Matthew Williamson, where colours were lighter (brown & grey) and shapes were more exaggerated.
To create this alluring make-up trend, use black eyeliner that is blended out at the corner of the eye. When you add your mascara, make it heavier around the outer eye. Meanwhile, keep skin light and dewy with minimal product for a clean fresh look. Use a pretty soft pink lip-gloss for overall perfection.

Erdem Pre-Fall 2011/12
Erdem is a personal favourite of mine. I love everything about the label – the use of exquisite lace, the divine floral embroidery and those unbelievably beautiful prints.
Erdem has just unveiled his first Pre-Fall collection. Creating ladylike shapes and new prints, this collection is ultra chic, feminine and simply put… to die for! Designer Erdem Moralioglu, achieves the incredible prints by capturing the images digitally, then manipulating them, before photocopying them. He described the collection as “filled with pieces that can be put together or taken apart and worn every day of the year.” My favourite looks from the Erdem Pre-Fall collection are pictured right…
