Flashback Friday: String Theory
Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Carly Hanger
The Moment: Eye Appliqués
The Motivation: We’ve seen neon triangles, crystals, pearls, neoprene, and lace applied to lids backstage. So upon stumbling across this image shot by Donna Trope, we couldn’t help but think of the last time we saw a makeup artist spin a standard spool of thread into backstage beauty gold. At Dries Van Noten’s Spring 2014 show, master of invention Peter Philips painstakingly layered tiny strands of tinsel-like string across models’ lashes with tweezers for a subtle—but striking—effect. Eye-catching, indeed.
