Take Your Liner to a “Dangerous” New Level
Eyeliner is making a serious statement on the Resort circuit this season. Backstage pro Peter Philips used a liquid formula to sketch graphic parallel lines on top and bottom lashes at Dior; Pat McGrath smudged shimmery blue, gray, burgundy, or khaki green pigments around catwalkers’ eyes at Louis Vuitton; smoky, kohl-rimmed lids accentuated by gold leaf on the inner corners appeared at Chanel; and makeup artist Vincent Oquendo crafted party-girl eyes reminiscent of Penny Lane in Almost Famous at Marc Jacobs’.
For the latest issue of Jalouse, however, Oquendo took a new textural approach to the trend, lining model Ali Michael’s upper lashes with black Duo Eyelash Adhesive and flat, gunmetal studs purchased from M&J Trimming in New York City. “I was inspired by the nineties and Nancy Downs [actress Fairuza Balk] in The Craft, so I wanted it to look dangerous but still feel fresh,” he said. “She was styled with all of these chokers and chains, so I translated that to Ali’s face.” For those who want to take the goth-punk aesthetic one step further, try Oquendo’s combo for a bewitching-but-subtle plummy-black lip: MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth and Lipstick in Cyber.
