EXCLUSIVE: “Husky Eyes”: What They Are And How To Get Them-------
The retro, black cat-eye is one of the big backstage beauty stories for Spring. Chalk it up to the fifties influence that hit its stride in Milan and has continued to gain steam in Paris. But while makeup artist Lucia Pieroni gave us one of our favorite incarnations of the winged-out liner technique at Jonathan Saunders, she was going for something different at Hussein Chalayan this morning—something “strong and soft at the same time” that was decidedly less feline and more…canine. ”They’re like husky eyes,” she said of the diffused brown lids she created using MAC Eye Pencil in Coffee, which she drew along the water line and smudged into lashes before smearing its Paintpot in Contructivist, a shimmering chestnut cream pigment, through the crease. ”It makes the eyes whiter—and really makes green eyes pop,” she added—a convenient little tip for those of you who, like us, are proud members of team hazel.
