The Runway Makeup Trend to Make Your Eyes Pop
This is one bold beauty trend we're dying to take from runway to reality.
If there's one trend from Fashion Month we've been dying to try on our next night out, it's this one. Adorned eyes made appearances in New York, London and Milan in the forms of glitter, dots and sequins. Of course, this isn't the first season we saw lid adornments take center stage. For the Chanel Couture Spring 2014 show, silver glitter chunks sparkled beneath models' peepers, while leather strips added a pop of color to lids at the Fendi Spring 2015 show.
And it looks like the trend is back in full swing for Fall 2015. Take a peek at our favorite runway ways to wear the glitzy trend and take note of our product picks to get the look at home.
For Ohne Titel, Kabuki used tiny caviar beads to line the bottom lids. You can create your own look using accent beads such as the ones found in Ciaté's Caviar Manicure Set ($25). If you want to get the full runway effect, try Kabuki's trick of using watered-down Elmer's glue to adhere the beads.
It was all about the gold at Tadashi Shoji, where models rocked gilded lids. To re-create a super-shine effect like this, use Mehron Paradise Glitter ($7) for a dramatic take. For a more wearable look, Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow ($21) will get the job done.
Eudon Choi had us seeing spots with this dotted eye look. We like the idea of drawing dots on our lids to replace the standard eyeliner or feline flick. To get this look on a budget, try Flower Beauty That's So Kohl eyeliner ($8), which allows you to draw whatever shapes you like with these fun colored pencils.
One of our favorite adorned lid looks has to be from Temperley London, where bold sequins gave models a disco-ball effect. In case you're not daring enough to wear real sequins on your lids (sounds heavy to us!), a blend of Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips ($15) will allow you to get just the right amount of shine.
