From the scattering of glitter to the blocks of bright eyeshadow and vibrant graphic lines, it was all about the eyes at New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019. At Tadashi Shoji and Kate Spade, high-impact glitter eyes were paired with clean skin and bare lips to keep the look modern and fresh.
At Rodarte, makeup artist James Kaliardos painted horizontal swatches of canary yellow, baby blue and fuchsia onto models’ lids using the newly reformulated NARS Single Eyeshadows in Douro, Baby Jane and Domination. To really up the intensity of the color, he pressed the pigment directly onto the eyelid with a medium-sized brush before buffing the edges. Then there were the “punky” wings seen at Alice + Olivia, which Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Erin Parsons crafted with turquoise eyeliner (Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Silken Turquoise) topped with powder eyeshadow (the teal shade from Maybelline The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette in Graffiti Pop).
And let’s not forget the good old cat eye, which popped up in different colors and forms this season. Models at Self-Portrait wore white graphic lines around the eyes (courtesy of Maybelline Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Cashmere White) to depict a “youthful, free and feminine spirit”, while a “Classic Disney Villains” inspired look of neon green wings paired with a black lip showed up at The Blonds.
