bring the swinging ’60s to your eyes.
At the end of spring ’13 New York Fashion Week, we gushed about the retro-but-modern Edie eyes we spied from Richard Chai to Marc Jacobs (and lots of shows in between). Lucky us, it seems that ‘60s-style lids are sticking around for fall ‘13. At Tanya Taylor, the inspiration for the NARS’ Uzo was a ‘60s bad girl--think exaggerated black liner paired with sassy bouffants. It’s kind of how we dream to look if we were to ever get a mug shot taken. “This season, the Tanya Taylor girl is tougher, edgier, and sexier,” Uzo explained, adding, “I wanted to make a simple, no-nonsense statement with bold, black liner on the eyes and nude lip color set against fresh, radiant skin.” Meanwhile, Revlon’s Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman went for something of the same time period, but a bit groovier. To create the “playful,” as she put it, look, Westman “focused on the eyes and went for something retro. To make it a bit more contemporary and modern I opted for bright colored liners in blue and purples, rather than black, and added shadow on top for an extra pop,” she says. The products that you’ll need? Try Revlon’s ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen or NARS’ Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil for a classic look, or--if you can wait until June and want a little bit of color--Revlon’s PhotoReady Kajal Intesne Eyeliner + Brightener in Blue Nile (Westman has first dibs on all their upcoming products, lucky her). To pair it with a nude lip, try Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting or Cupcake (both were used at Lisa Perry) or NARS’ Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere. Whether you tease your hair into a bouffant or not? Well, that part’s up to you.
