The Perfect Flick: Eyeliner


This season the feeling is very much 1950s meets early 80s with a few sprinkles of 60s Bardot thrown in. It's all about strong make-up. Key elements are eyeliner, contouring and the perfect deep lip. Make a statement and wear it with conviction, show you mean business and knock 'em dead! As long as your application is flawless anything goes - just be bold with the look you choose.

The Perfect Flick

This trend was echoed at many shows and ranged from a gentle flick to a very bold eyeliner /shadow which included the lid as well as the lash line, creating an exaggerated version of the original Audrey Hepburn eyeliner. This homage to the 50s is a much stronger and fiercer shape almost bordering on punk, making it fresh and interesting.
