Smoky Eyes

Dramatic eye makeup added some oomph to the neutral palette at Mackage and set off the gothic looks at Tony Cohen, but at Tracy Reese (above), it added a touch of drama to the designer’s modern jet-set look. Maybelline New York global makeup artist Charlotte Willer used Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in black to frame the eye, then added dark brown shadow to the lid and blended beige shadow to the eyebrow. Topped off with a few coats of Lash Stiletto Voluptuous Mascara and a few swoops of gentle pink Mineral Power Illuminator Powder around the eye area, this look is a sexy, not scary way to get smoldering eyes.

Deep Red Lips

From Richard Chai LOVE to Vivienne Tam to Georges Chakra, designers were seeing red. At Edition by Georges Chakra (above), the look was particularly… bloody. “[They’re] glampires: the chicest vampires ever,” Gregory Arlt, top artist on the MAC Pro Team said of the models before the show. After creating a pale face with defined eyebrows, Arlt filled in the models’ lips with MAC Mahogany Lip Pencil, blended it with a small, square #231 brush, then used the brush to top it off with Diva Lipstick. “Good old Diva… every girl needs a little Diva lipstick.” Arlt notes that the combination of Mahogany’s brown shade with Diva’s blue undertones makes for the perfect, lasting dried-blood red.

  1. I hate the nude makeup look. The model looks like a cadver. Get the coffin ready. She looks sickly unattractive and needs to eat. No man I know what find this look appealing.
