Smoky Eye Makeup Looks, Tutorials and Application Tips

A 1930s Egyptian influence weaves together fashion and beauty at the Fall 2010 Rachel Roy Fashion Show. Peacock prints are lifted from feminine silhouettes and translated into bold, beautiful makeup. Iridescent “peacock feather” eyes gleam in denim and burgundy metallic shades from brow to lower lash line with a hint of aqua on inner corners, ultimately lined with a black kohl pencil. An even, dewy finish of the skin, softly defined pink cheek, and sheer beige lip allow the eyes to be the star of this show.

At the Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2010 show, the look is all about a sultry smoky eye in plum and reddish brown with a dash of shimmer in the inner eye and nude lips. This is definitely one of my favorite looks so far and I can’t wait to do my very own version of it! In the mean time, read on to find out what makeup artist Sarah Tanno from MAC used to create the look.
