Would You Wear Gloss on Your Eyelids?

I was in fourth grade when I first read about the phenomenon of putting Vaseline on your eyelids in an issue of Seventeen. It seemed like a very brave and grownup notion at the time, and certainly something that would never fly in front of my classmates (whose beauty experimentation stopped at flavored Lip Smackers). Ever since then, I’ve tossed the idea around whenever I grow bored of my everyday matte shadow. And if the Fall 2013 shows are any indication, now may be the best time to finally experiment with the shiny eye look. The coolest part? In lieu of petroleum jelly, you can use almost any translucent lip gloss (and probably even that half-used tube of balm lying around in your purse).

BURGUNDY HUES TAKE CENTERSTAGE AT ZAC POSEN

If designer Zac Posen’s Fall 2013 collection is any indicator of beauty trends to come, burgundy is about to have a major moment. Backstage models were sporting glossy, port-wine manis and deep plum lips. Essie’s lead manicurist Michelle Saunders told us that the lacquer hue  was chosen to match several evening dresses in the designer’s collection.

To create the look, Saunders and her crew applied two coats of essie’s Carry On. The crimson shade looked smashing, and its very apt name appropriately described the post-Nemo mood backstage.

MAC’s key makeup artist Kabuki contrasted ethereal white eye shadow with a wow-factor pout to build on the collection’s rich color story, outlining lips with the Pencil NC15 in Vino Lip Liner to keep lipstick smudge- and crease-free. Next, he applied MAC’s Lip Mix in Burgundy with a slim makeup brush.

Elaborating on the color, Kabuki explained, “I had Tilda Swinton in the back of my mind.” The finished look definitely evoked the regal actress’s elegance and boldness.
