Throwback Thursday: Silver Linings Playbook
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: Guinevere Van Seenus
The Moment: Heavy Metal Eyes
The Motivation: Perhaps it’s our obsession with all things sparkly, but metallics (silver in particular) have never seemed more appropriate. And thanks to makeup artist Pat McGrath’s handiwork at Dior’s Fall 2013 show, platinum liner has become one of our favorite beauty looks to date. For some otherworldly inspiration, however, we’re looking to this shot of Van Seenus. Her foiled lids, combined with a futuristic widow’s-peak haircut and ombré lips, make a case for going a little overboard with a trend.—Tara Lamont-Djite
