It’s Sunday morning and you’ve just woken up. You study last night’s lingering eye makeup in the mirror and think, This looks good. I’m wearing this today!” That’s exactly the eye look seen at Blue Les Copains by Peter Som this morning. Chantel Miller with M•A•C Cosmetics described the makeup as “the girl who used to live downtown but moved uptown. This is her out-to-brunch face; she’s rocking the makeup she had on last night.”
Of course, we don’t advocate sleeping in your makeup, so here’s how to re-create this cool eyeliner look on a clean face. Blacktrack Fluidline was used to line the top lash line, which Chantel then diffused with two shades of shadow: Copperplate and Coquette. She said it made the liner look dirty (in a good way, we promise) and a bit dusty. The lower liner was again Blacktrack, only smudged with the 239 brush. A blue-grey Technakohl eyeliner (new for fall) was applied along the waterline and outer lid only. The effect was made to look like kohl pencil that had worn down, which just somehow looked cooler than a perfect line.
Last, Dusk cream color base (a gorgeous brown) was pressed into the center of the lower lash line. This beautiful sheen was again meant to look like the kohl pencil had worn off a bit, which only gave the appearance of a slightly lived-in feel with a lot more character. We loved Chantel’s advice about why we should try layering and blending our eyeliner with eyeshadow this fall; she said it makes the liner look a bit dusty and less black. This is an especially great tip if you think that black liner is too much for you. We can’t wait to experiment!
