Runway Beauty: Mysterious Smoky Eyes at Giles Spring/Summer 2015

September 21, 2014

At Giles Spring/Summer 2015, models wore a look inspired by French photographer Sarah Moon. The eyes were smoked out in washes of grays and blacks while the nails popped in graphic black and green.

After skin was prepped with Lightful C Marine-Bright Formula Softening Lotion and Essence, Pieroni used Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 35 sparingly and Studio Conceal and Correct Palette to cover up any imperfections. She then swept Blot Powder through the t-zone to eliminate shine.

On the eyes, she applied MAC Eyeshadows in Black Tied and Soot to the inner corners. She blended the colors no further than the pupil and smoked them out for a mysterious, hollow, yet beautiful look.

As a finishing touch, she patted Lip Conditioner (Tube) onto the lips.

To create the nail look, Newman applied Nail Lacquer in Nocturnelle on the top two-third of the nail and Deep Sea on the bottom third.
