This “dark fairy” eye at Erin Fetherson FW12 was
1. A U-shaped line was created above the eye, and reflected below, by dotting MAC Smolder Eye Kohl in the desired arc. This was then blended, creating a BLACK PRIMER (why had I never thought of this) which James feels is essential for creating a true dark eye.
2. MAC Carbon shadow, then Grape, were blended - it was the addition of color that made this eye truly multidimensional. If you ever wondered how to wear purple eyeshadow without looking like you got punched … this is it.
3. Finally, MAC Platinum pigment creates an other-worldly silver glow.
James was also thrilled to pile on the MAC Haute & Naughty mascara for this look - true-to-life, as most women do love their mascara! - and a welcome relief from the more “natural” lash sent down the runways of late.
The face was flushed and flawless, with minimal touches of foundation/concealer, blush in Pink Swoon high on the cheekbones, a touch of contouring, and a clear gloss lip.
When you see it in progress (top photos), it seems very editorial, but the final look (bottom) is totally Friday night.
