Flashback Friday: The Eyes Have It
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: Christy Turlington
The Moment: Bejeweled Lids
The Motivation: At first glance this may not appear to be a beauty shot, but look a little closer and you’ll be sure to spot Christy Turlington’s sparkling lash lines. Much has been placed on lids in the past: neon stickers at Atelier Versace; gold string at Dries Van Noten; neoprene at Fendi; lace, pearls, and jumbo glitter at Chanel. And Fall 2014 was no different. Makeup maestro Pat McGrath created incredibly beautiful “mothlike” lashes and brows at Alexander McQueen with hand-cut feathers, and used liquid latex instead of standard shadow at Dior. And seeing as eyes are the windows to the soul, why not add some extreme embellishment to attract even more attention?—Tara Lamont-Djite
