PLAID’S PICKS FOR ACHIEVING FALL’S CLASSIC EYE LOOK
Story by Amanda Elizabeth Smith
As Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor made the “Cat Eye” a makeup classic around the world. Warhol muse, Edie Sedgwick, was known for her heavily kohled eyes and equally dark brows. These fashion icons made eyeliner a staple item in women’s makeup bags in the 1960s, and this fall, the look is back with a bang.
At Chanel, black eyeliner was used to outline the models’ eyes to dramatize a smoky metallic look. At Lavin, it was a neutral face with a smudged Cat Eye that made the models look simply elegant. And at Rebecca Minkoff, eyeliner was used to line both the top and bottom lids, as well as the inner bottom lid, to give models a strong, sultry eye.
Here are Plaid’s top eyeliner picks for fall:
Bobbi Brown’s award-winning Long-wear Gel Eyeliner glides on beautifully and gives the same look as liquid liner (but with the ease of a gel-based formula). The name says it all – once on it stays on until you are ready to take it off!
M.A.C Eye Kohl is a smoky eye staple; this silky stick goes on smoothly and smudges nicely. This eyeliner comes in an array of colours that never fail to impress, from “Smolder” (an intense black) to “Minted” (a vibrant green with pearl).
Origins Automagically Eye Lining Pencil is truly magical! Lining and defining is easy to do with its precise pencil point and soft creamy formula. And it gets even better – its new user-friendly package allows you to see how much product is left, so you get perfect results every time you line.
A luxe pencil that glides on like liquid but lasts like a permanent marker! This creamy liner goes on easily in one smooth stroke, laying down a beautiful rich colour that wears up to 12 hours! Attached to the pencil is a convenient foam-tipped applicator for easy smudging and blending.
With an easy-to-use applicator that allows for a precise, smudge-free application, M.A.C’s Liquid Eyeliner will allow you to achieve the perfect winged eye, even if you’re in a rush.
* Fear not – all of these eyeliners are ophthalmologically tested, so they will not bother sensitive eyes.
