Eye-deas

I always get the urge to get all experimental with my eye makeup when the weather starts to get warmer. MAC and Make Up For Ever provide most of my color box, and the rest is up to whatever inspiration I hunt down in mags and on the internets.


I love the neon colors and the thin black strokes that remind me of a Kandinsky painting. (source)


The Luella Spring '10 graphic eye could be achieved with a bright cream shadow and a brush. One thing I need is a good primer to reduce the annoyance that is creasing.


I learned about Japanese magazine So-En from a fave blog of mine, Through a Glass Darkly, and so glad I did- the pictures are beautiful and inspiring. Having recently discovered how amazingly comprehensive Sephora's makeup line is, I know they even make glitter eyeliners if you want to copy this look which I think is subtle yet really cool.


Also spotted in So-En, I present you POLKA DOT eyes. Crazy I know, but eager to try since I'm a polka dot fanatic.


It's safe to say I'm in love with the black & white eyes at Junya Watanabe this season. They were a stunning compliment to the two-tone collection and a look I would not hesitate to copy myself.

These looks are awesome, but I would probably fuck them all up, I'm terrible with make-up. Anyway, it was great to see you at the international playground party, you should come out this Friday to Webster, Hot Chip and the Juan McLean will be DJing!

Wow, these are all tremendeously good! And that's coming from a very much non-make up person. The first one is just amazing, you're right with the Kandinsky-reference, even though it also scream "sci-fi" to me. Love it.

Thanks for the shout out! These are all beautiful, I'm pretty crap at/bored by standard make-up too, these look much more fun!
