6 looks of Smokey Eye

September 22nd, 2008

It seems that at the turn of the fall, things always get dramatic in terms of makeup and accessories. I find this spread from the October issue of FASHION magazine absolutely gorgeous and giving me new ideas about how to wear the always classic smokey eye in different ways. “High-impact necklaces and six version of the smokey eye are commanding the conversation. Outbursts in gold, purple, taupe, grey, burgundy and black spoke out loud and clear on models’ eyelids at the Fall 2008 runway shows.” Aren’t the necklaces CRAZY? They will be the inspiration when I go hunting for crazy necklaces this fall.

WEAR WITH a barely-there sheer lipstick or lipgloss and a natural, cheekbone-enhancing blush. NEED TO KNOW that any shade of burgundy works, from grape and rouge to purple and fuchsia.

WEAR WITH petal-pink lips and a flush of pink on the apples of the cheeks. NEED TO KNOW the season’s smouldering purple eye can be worn two ways: sparkling brilliant or sweetly demure.

WEAR WITH pale-pink lipstick and a touch of dusty-rose blush. NEED TO KNOW that taupe is versatile, ranging from plum-grey to earth-brown hues. Regardless of shade, this look is best worn across the entire eye — from lashline to brow.

WEAR WITH a deep berry-stained lip and a light stroke of sun swept blush on cheekbones. NEED TO KNOW this canary-gold version of the smoky eye can be as monochromatic or three-dimensional as your eyeshadow palette inspires.

WEAR WITH neutral, sheer, slightly shiny lips and a bare face. NEED TO KNOW this shiny, wet-look, blacked-out eye is best applied with a heavy hand for a thick, glossy finish.

WEAR WITH beige-toned or rose lipstick. NEED TO KNOW that ultimate grey smoky eye, as painted by Peter Philips for Chanel’s couture show, can be worn sheer and light for day or with added layers of eyeshadow for night. “The colour was like a chameleon: Sometimes it looked blue, sometimes more grey, even black,” says Philips.
