At the Fall 2009 show, Karl Lagerfeld mixed in the popular ’80s theme we see this season with futurism. He kept his pieces tailored and added in a military twist with “bridge shoulders” and fur helmets.

To go with the hardness Karl’s collection depicted, a strong look was created on the models. The skin was kept clean and the eyes rimmed heavily with black eyeliner. To recreate the eyes, run a pencil liner around your eyes and extend past the outer corner just a little. Top with a gel liner or liquid liner for the most dramatic effect. Leave the cheeks bare and pale out your lips with a light layer of foundation.

  1. hey there!

    can i make a blog request? :) what are your thoughts on primers? i currently bought “top secret” from ysl and have a hard time finding out if this stuff is actually good for my skin. i know it helps a bit with making my skin look nicer before makeup, but i’m concerned about how if affects the general wellbeing of my skin. thank you so much!
