Spring Runway Eyes

7 Mar

 Spring colors typically reside in the soft and subtle. Each season, the runway is flooded with pastels and sweet shades of pink, signifying the floral season ahead. However, this year’s designers took a bold turn with the beauty looks to compliment their clothing. Jean Paul Gaultier created an Amy Winehouse inspired look complete with fake beauty marks and pink hair and Christian Dior brought a chic Mad Men style to the runway complete with a retro beauty look to match. Inspired by these glamorous looks, we’ve designed a bold eye look you can match with your favorite spring outfit.

Step 1) Start with a lid primer to ensure liner stays in place. We used Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer. Then using a thin eyeliner brush, create an outline starting at the center of your lid, just above the crease and ending at the tip of your brow for the wing.

Step 2) Once you have created your outline, fill in with water-proof black gel liner. Then using fine strokes, add liner to your inner eye. We used Buxom Lash liner in Leatherette.

Pair this bold eye look with neutral skin and frosted lips to let your eyes do the talking, or match the look with bold red lips for an all over dramatic look!

    Even though this eye look is trending, I would never wear it during the day. But it would be the bomb at night!
