Summer Beauty Trend: Bold Eyes

many models strutted their stuff on the Spring/Summer runways wearing a bold eye of some sort. everything from a splash of color to smeared raccoon eyes let us know that it would be ok to go bold, even in the warm season. i am so loving this trend, since of course i'm all about eye makeup-- ha!

"the hair was strong with a sense of mystery," says Kerastase stylist Luigi Murenu. he applied mousse for added volume, curled the hair from mid-shaft to the ends and finished with a shine spray. for the eyes, Pat McGrath layered a combination of green shadows (Make Up For Ever Flash Color Pot in Turquoise, CoverGirl shadow in Turquoise Tempest and Max Factor shadow in Moody Mint) on the upper lids, and completed the look with black liquid liner, black mascara and individual false lashes.

with a rock & roll edge, the Matthew Williamson show featured a perfect look fitting to the theme. created by makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, the eyes were rimmed with black MAC eye pencil and dark shadow for an all-around smoky eye. stylist Paul Hanlon kept the hair simple with oil spray and a flat iron.

"the look is dramatic with a softness to it," says makeup artist Diane Kendal, who created a strong eye and a contrasting soft pink lip. using a MAC eye kohl in Smolder (black), she lined the eyes and blended it into the crease. the lips were layered with MAC lip conditioner and Bubbles lipstick. the hair, created by Orlando Pita for T3, contrasted with the sophisticated clothes in the collection. he parted the hair off-center and then rolled it away from the face, twisting it around the head and securing with bobby pins.
