Backstage Makeup Breakdown: Karl Lagerfeld Fall 2009

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.
