I can't get last month's cover of Harper's Bazaar UK out of my head. Alexa Chung, whose makeup was done by Florrie White, is riveting. The eye makeup! More geek-out images:
With bare skin, nude-pink lips, black mascara, and liner that looks like shaggy lower lashes -- love x lots.
We've seen â€™60s-era lower-lash emphasis before -- you know, on Marianne Faithfull as mentioned on the Harperâ€™s cover, Jean Shrimpton, and Twiggy, etc. -- and it pops up in backstage-beauty trends every once in a while.
Was Miss Piggy inspired for her MAC capsule collection?
Backstage at Paul & Joe Fall/Winter 2011, it looks wearable. Just a few exaggerated ticks with a sharp, smudge-proof pencil, maybe dark grey rather than black, like thick lower lashes casting shadows. Not too thin or too long -- don't want to look like Blake Lively or Kim Kardashian.
Okay, maybe not for the office. But gorgeous, arresting. Appropriate for, say, a holiday party, especially with that silvery highlight at the tearducts.
My lower lashes are pretty much non-existent (as not shown here). Maybe that's why I'm obsessed.
What do you think? Is this something you'd try? Or have tried?
