Very Messy Eyeliner
On the spring/summer 2017 runways, a handful of models had dark-rimmed eyes so smudged that the phrase “next-day makeup” didn’t do the look justice. The new Chanel makeup artist Cyndle Komarovski calls it an “updated version of a smoky eye,” and adds that in order to achieve the look at home, “all you need are your fingertips.” As for why you would want to — we’re taking a cue from the shows, where the rebellious eye makeup added a nice edge to the season’s more delicate and feminine designs. Below, Komarovski walks us through the steps.
“Start by rimming your top and bottom waterline with a black kohl pencil. Kohl pencils are easy to smudge but will retain their opaque black quality. Then trace your upper lash line generously with the liner. Don’t worry about tracing too perfectly; it can be messy. Lightly run your middle finger, smudging the liner and working it onto the lid, and tracing it out to the outer corners of the eye. Repeat on the bottom lash line meeting at the outer edge of the eye. This will create a beautiful catlike shape.
“To add a bit more pop and freshness, press in Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Matte Eyeshadow in Fleur de Pierre on your lid. The shimmer will give your eye a glossy effect but stay in place all through the evening. Curl your lashes but skip the mascara for a cooler, more youthful feel.” Chanel eye shadow, $36, chanel.com. — CAITLIN KELLY
