Graphic eye makeup dominated the red carpet of the 2013 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Costume Institute Gala last night. Inspired by 80s film, “Ladies And Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains”, makeup Artist Erin Ayanian created a soft look with NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto and Barrow Street on Dakota Fanning.
January Jones on the other hand rocked a heavier, black graphic eye. Celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin applied Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Mirifique on the inner and outer edges of her eyes then embellished the look by adding jet crystals on top.
Then there’s Ginnifer Goodwin, whose Siouxsie and the Banshees/punk-rock-inspired look reminded me of the look from Alexander McQueen Fall 2007. To create the look, makeup artist Mai Quynh applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Shadow in Noir to the lashline, winged it out then connected it to her eyebrow – filling in the shape completely. Next, Quynh layered Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Black Ice over the lid, along the lashline and under the eyebrows, blending all together. Next, Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Seashell Pink was blended it all over the lid and Black Ice, creating a gradual light to dark effect. The look was finished with individual faux eyelashes and a few coats of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara in Black on the top lashes and Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Violet around the eyes.
