Models at the Zero + Maria Cornejo fashion show during NYFW on Sept. 14, rocked smudged, exaggerated white eyeliner. The look is easily translated to real life — get it below!
We only have to look at Gigi Hadid to get inspiration on a high fashion beauty trend looking glamorous, gorgeous, and totally hot in real life.
Dick Page, Shiseido Artistic Director, spoke about the look: “There is little color, keeping neutrality to the entire overall look and feel of the collection.”
He painted a white “smudge” on the eyelids as a tribute to the art student.
Here’s how to get the look with Shiseido products:
“Eyes: Using the Eyeshadow Brush in Medium that was cut to create a chopped up art brush, jagged brush strokes were painted on the outer corners of the eyes using a white cream pigment similar to the white shade of the Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Snow Shadow (GY901). Eyelashes were curled with the Shiseido Eyelash Curler and eyebrows were filled in as needed with the Shimmering Cream Eye Colors in Caviar (BK912), Sable (BR709), Leather (BR306), Sunshower (OR313) and Meadow (BE204) based on the models’ complexions.
Face: Skin was kept clean and natural by applying the Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation (NEW for Spring 2016) minimally as needed after skin was prepped with the Ibuki Refining Moisturizer Enriched. For a matte finish, the Translucent Loose Powder was applied to the cheeks.
Lip: The lip is kept bare with just a touch of the Benefiance Full Correction Lip Treatment.
White Eyeliner — Rock The NYFW Look In Real Life
To copy this idea, we’re taking inspiration from Gigi Hadid. Instead of smudging, like Dick did at Zerp + Maria Cornejo, try lining eyes as usual with a white pencil. To make the look even more mainstream, add a black liner on top to softer the look, so just a very small hint of white is peeking out.
