The graphic eyeliner trend continued to be a hit this fall with makeup artists interpreting the look in an even more unconventional, modern manner. At Anthony Vaccarello A/W 2014, red lipstick and black liquid eyeliner were applied on models’ lids and under their eyes with dental flossfor a “sophisticated and arty cool” look. At Marchesa, gel and liquid eyeliner in shades of blue and green were layered over each other for a feminine look while Zac Posen presented us with a “black swan” graphic eye with feather-like strokes at the inner and outer corner of the eyes.
After the Indian-inspired look for Pre-fall 2012, Chanel wowed us once again with a gorrrrrgeous beauty look at the Resort 2015 show in Dubai. Models were given ultra big hair, glowy skin and pink lips paired with dramatic two-toned eyeliner and a touch of gold in the inner corners. Love the look?

At the Lanvin A/W ’14 show, makeup artist Pat McGrath revisited the smudgy eye makeup look at Chanel Fall 2010 and gave it a twist. Models’ lids were covered with a cream-based black liner that was smudged out and faux lashes that were cut clean and square were added for contrast.
At Anthony Vaccarello A/W ’14, the look was all about a graphic eye in shades of red and black. “Anthony’s collection is graphic and modern, edged with accents of color. I created a makeup look in the style of graphic fashion illustrations with ultrafine lines of black and red to accent the eye. The look is sophisticated and arty cool.” explained lead artist Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
At Missoni A/W 2014, makeup artist Lucia Pieroni created “cool girls in their boyfriends’ coats, at the bus stop at 6 in the morning” with blocks of graphic eyeliner and dewy skin.
