Throwback Thursday: Fine Line
Throwback Thursday is a column 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: Naomi Sims
The Moment: Powder-Blue Liner
The Motivation: The world of fashion never stops, and as such, the countdown to the New York shows has begun. And while a new season means new trends, new silhouettes, and a new It bag, we can’t wait to discover which beauty looks will return and which will surprise us. In particular: blue eyeliner. When we spotted the above shot (that is oddly similar to the look from Stella McCartney last Spring), from a 1972 issue of Vogue, we couldn’t help but wonder which tone of this much-beloved hue will reappear for 2014? Will it be navy, cerulean, indigo, or cornflower? And will face painters apply the color in small doses (as seen here), or use it all over lids? The only thing we know for now: We can’t keep our eyes off Sims’ spiky black lashes and icy inner rims.—Tara Lamont-Djite
