If winged eyeliner is sexy — and, of course, it is — then twice the liner is a good thing indeed. Case in point: this double-your-pleasure look from the Dolores Cortés runway. Makeup artist Lottie created the cat-eye look by applying Make Up For Ever Aqua Black, a waterproof cream shadow, with a nylon brush. For the top line, start from the outside of the eye, working your way into the lash line. Connect the winged liner to the bottom lash line by drawing a straight line; starting from the inside out is easiest. Sound complicated? It's not, Lottie promises. "The best way is to do it with your eyes open," she says. "And look up, not down at the mirror. You can see the whole lid." Make the look pop even more with a neon lip. In this case, Lottie filled lips in with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip in 16C, then layered a complementary fuchsia Aqua Cream (#7) to intensify the color. The result: two bold looks that go great together.
Miami Swim Week is in full swing, bringing you the sultriest new looks to wear by the pool, at the beach, or out on the town. The 2013 season is looking hot indeed: multicolored hair, surprisingly wearable pops of neon, and bronze-goddess metallic makeup. We attended as a guest of Make Up For Ever, flitting from backstage to backstage to pick up on the trends. The best part? Next year's looks are feeling so right, right now.
I always mark the middle of Summer with Miami Swim. This year's standouts included the always awesome Mara Hoffman, Trina Turk's debut collection, and White Sands Australia's forward cuts and pretty prints; here is the designer with a bevy of models, whisk me off to the Great Barrier Reef already! Celeb attendees included Selena Gomez, the Kardashian sisters, and Hilary Rhoda. Aquatic ambiance, poolside fun, and extreme sizzle within.
