Runway Beauty: Blinged Up Eyes at Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2013

Dior always brings us the prettiest, brightest runway looks and for Spring/Summer 2013, lead makeup artist Pat McGrath created “techno-butterflies” with blocks of cream and powder eyeshadow dragged across the lid and blinged up with lots of Swarovski crystals. Anyone doing this for Halloween?

  1. I may not be taking inspiration from runway, but runway seems to be taking inspiration from me 😀 – I did this for a night out last summer.

    (And I was, in turn, inspired by Sminklådan’s Gröönt makeup.
    She’s got some crazy yet quite nice looks.)

  2. Hi Phyllis,

    We love all of your Halloween costume tutorials and recently included them in our “Best of the Beauty Blogs…” post on GlamBlush. Keep up the great work!
