We’ve been seeing this drastic contoured eyeliner look all over this holiday season, from Senna Cosmetics Do You Dare? Holiday 2013 Collection to Sephora‘s Winged Eyeliner and Matte Red Lip Holiday Look video (seen below).
Our writer and makeup artist Nicole Iannitti created this look using a brown eyeliner and mascara from Sensai Cosmetics to give it a more MOD-ern Twist.
When I hear the names Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick (above), my mind is immediately flooded with visions of bold eyeliner with a cut crease. These women were prevalent during the Mod era — and this look is making a comeback. Read on to find out how to get a modern and everyday eye look with the same idea.
Eyeliner: Any soft brown eyeliner (I used Sensai Eyeliner in Brown)
Mascara: Any brown volumizing mascara (I used Sensai 38°C Mascara in Brown)
Eyeshadow: A soft, matte nude (I used Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No.7 – Plush Shadow in The Lolita 206 )
Eyeshadow: A soft, matte dark chocolate brown (also from Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No.7 – Plush Shadow in The Lolita 206 )
Foundation: Any foundation (I used Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation)
Powder: Cargo HD Picture Perfect Translucent Powder
Blush: A light pink color (I used Angelika Blush by NARS)
Lipstick: A sheer nude lipstick (I used Belle de Jour Lipstick by NARS)
Eyeliner: A beige eyeliner (I used Rue Bonaparte Larger Than Life Eyeliner by NARS)
Step 1: Line both upper lash lines with the brown eyeliner pencil from inner corner to outer corner.
Step 3: To reinforce the liner, use the eyeliner brush and soft, matte dark chocolate brown shade in a patting motion over the liner.
Step 4: Draw a line in the crease of your eye with the brown liner.
Step 5: Using the soft, matte brown shade and the crease brush, blend out the line. We want it to be defined, but the modern look is slightly diffused at the edges.
Step 6: To intensify the line a little more, use the crease brush to add more of the soft, matte dark chocolate brown shade. Concentrate the color in the original spot you applied the brown eyeliner.
Step 7: Line the bottom lash line with the soft, matte chocolate brown using the eyeliner brush.
Step 9: Curl your lashes — pump close to you lash line for 20-seconds. Then, continue to walk your way up your lashes; pumping each time. Add LOTS of mascara!!
Step 11: Use your blush brush to apply the loose powder; concentrating in areas where you feel you get more oily.
Step 12: Use your blush brush again and apply blush to the apples of your cheeks.
Step 13: Last step! Lips!
