The gleaming graphic eyes from Chloe's spring '13 runway show ran on page 94 in our March issue. Alongside it, there's a spread of sparkly orange products that our April cover girl and MAC collaborator, Hayley Williams, would surely approve of. And for good reason--not only was this look all over the runways, but every makeup artist will tell you that now it's all about the metallics over the glitters and the shimmers. Sorry glitter everything--it's been real. To replicate makeup artist Diane Kendal's look from the show, we tapped our official NYLON expert Marni Burton, who you might remember her famous watercolor eye creation. Burton breaks down the two "G's": how to get the gleam and how to get the graphic edge.
Follow product recommendations and super helpful pro tips:
1. "Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion on your eye-lid all the way up to your brow."
2. "First apply the boldest color that you're working with on your bottom lid: this one is a shimmering, fiery orange."
3. "To get the graphic look, hold a Q-tip or a thin makeup brush at an angle directly onto your eye on an upward slant from the inner corner of your eye to the outer end of your eyebrow. This will keep your color in a clean, straight as you apply it--almost like a stencil."
4. "Wet your index finger with a tiny bit of water and dab the eyeshadow onto the center of your lids."
5. Then use your pinky finger to pick up a smaller amount and apply more eyeshadow in the inner corners of your eyes.
6. "Brush through your brows and use a brow pencil that's ash brown instead of dark brown. The most vibrant feature of the face should be the color lid."
7. "Lancome's 'Black' mascara is more of an off black (as opposed to the 'Deep Black'), which is the way to go. The focus should be on the orange metallic, not the lashes."
8. "Finish with concealer pencil under your browline and under your eyes."
