Make-Up Trends From The Catwalk
Forget The Lips! Autumn Has ‘Fall’en For The Eyes
While I love a statement red lip, this coming Autumn / Winter 2011 season it is all about dramatic, alluring, captivating eyes.
From girly playfulness at Donna Karan (pictured above left) to high-octane neon pinks at Thakoon (pictured right) – the Fall runways left lips nude while eyes had their moment. Powerful eye statements were also seen at: Philip Lim, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang and Rodarte.
My favourite: At Donna Karan tangerine cream eye shadow was smudged across the top lid while white eyeliner discreetly traced the bottom. Lips were a delightful pastel pink matte to soften the look. Eyebrows were left untamed. Sweet, simple, playful perfection!
Meanwhile, Philip Lim saw metallic green eyes take the spotlight. At Marc Jacobs, a modern tough baby doll aesthetic took the traditional sweetness of this trend to the next level. Anna Sui created a different take on eye contouring that was both dramatic and intriguing; while Vera Wang’s grunge eyes created a dark and brooding prettiness that was just the right amount of sweet and sexy. Rodarte drew inspiration for eyes from the reds, golds and tawny browns of autumn. But the cleanest look was Proenza Schouler, where ‘minimalist’ eyes still drew the bulk of the impact in the midst of this flawless, barely-there look.
