While we were busy bracing ourselves for cooler temperatures, Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week was hotter than ever showcasing the latest spring trends in fashion and beauty. From fresh-faced makeup to bright bold lips, our favorite beauty look off the runway was a sleek, polished liner intensifying eyes with every strut.
How can you bring this runway look into your beauty repertoire? Lancôme National Celebrity Makeup Artists, Alex Sanchez and Darais have some great tips on how to get the perfect lined looks – if you think you have what it takes to create your own look, read further for a chance to win a trip to Paris!
Darais’ favorite look is the effortlessly classic daytime natural contoured eye with a dramatic lash line in black. He recommends using Lancôme’s Artliner 24H in Black Diamond along the top lash line – thinner for day and stamped heavily with a soft wing for the night. And when it comes to shadow – no need. He loves to use a concealer 3-4 shades lighter than your skin tone as an eye primer from lash line to the brow. He says, “The lightness creates a glow over the eyes and no shadow is needed.”
Alex Sanchez has a trick or two up his sleeve, but when it comes to getting the perfect line for your eye he says to apply mascara to both the upper and lower lashes before applying your liner. By applying the mascara first, it’s very easy to apply liquid liner as it creates a platform for the liner to land on. Alex also uses Lancôme’s Artliner 24H for the “wing” of the applicator. He notes, “This is a girls’ best friend for adjusting and correcting those pesky eye makeup mistakes.”
Lancôme’s NEW Artliner24H Precision Point Eyeliner is an ultra-long wear, laser-precise liquid liner available in 10 sophisticated cult colors defining eyes with a dramatic vinyl finish. The felt-tip applicator ensures the liner glides on flawlessly without tugging or skipping and delivers serious color.
