At Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2016, lead artist Pat McGrath gave models a gorgeous mermaid eye to go with the ’70s nightlife inspired collection. The eyes were first rimmed with aquamarine shadow using a damp brush before a seafoam color was blended over it up to the crease and under the eyes. Lots and lots of mascara helped define the eyes while the rest of the face was kept fresh with just a hint of peach blush, highlighter along the cheekbones and balm on the lips.
