Bright eyes and lips at Dior’s Couture show earlier this week. (Photo: style.com)
Neons have been a big hit all season, and the trend was particularly underscored earlier this week at Dior’s Couture runway show. Models strutted down the catwalk with bold lime green and shocking pink eyelids with matching false lashes to boot. The show’s makeup artist, Pat McGrath, also gave the girls eye-popping electric cerise lips to round out the look.
While today’s Twitter feeds may be filled exclusively with football, chips and dip, our Tweeters were up to their old tricks earlier in the week. Here are some of our favorites.
We love anything behind the scenes! We were thrilled when Pat McGrath gave us a sneak peek at Jessica Stam’s look for a new Cover Girl project:
More after the jump!
At this morning’s Ports 1961 presentation (at the New York Public Library, no less), minimalist neutrals, brights, and neon accessories were paired with velvet matte nails and flashes of bright eye makeup.
The legendary Pat McGrath, working with COVERGIRL, designed the look, describing it as “bare and beautiful with a flash of bright” on the eyes. McGrath kept the look fairly clean — just a bit of shimmer on the cheeks and nude lips — to make the line of seafoam green shadow on the upper lids stand out even more. Want to recreate it at home? McGrath suggests using COVERGIRL Intense Shadowblast Eye Shadow in Extreme Green.
Nonie Creme, Founding Creative Director of butter LONDON, created dark, matchy-matchy manis and pedis to contrast with the bright eyes and accessories. She started with Chimney Sweep, a metallic charcoal shade and covered it with their Matte Finish top coat. According to Creme, the matte finish over a metallic gives more depth and feels more contemporary than using it over a shimmer-free shade. It worked — the models’ nails has a sumptuous velvety finish.
