Eye/hair liner? Chanel SS11…

February 6, 2011

Now it’s finally coming into Springtime, I thought I’d take another look at the Chanel Spring Summer 2011 catwalk make up.

First of all, it’s always great to see some visible make up on the runway…forget the nude eye, nude lip combo – this is a lot more wearable for us mere mortals and something you might actually consider trying on a Saturday night.  I love the gorgeous strong eyes, perfectly paired with subtle pink glossy lips.  The key to this look is blending, it can be achieved with one simple black eyeshadow, a cream one would work best.  I’d recommend MAC Paint Pot in Blackground or Urban Decay Cream Eyeshadow in Asphalt blended out with a MAC 217 brush.  Line the entire waterline with black kohl and apply a really dark mascara like Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara but skip false lashes.  Keep eyebrows natural if you’re taking the colour right up to the brow bone.

The liner down the parting? Not so sure about that. Certainly different, but I don’t think you’ll see it featured in any of my FOTDs any time soon.
