Spring 2011's Hottest Fashion & Eye Makeup Looks
Not sure which makeup look to pair with the stripe trend you're so into? We got the scoop from in-the-know fashion and beauty experts
Fashion Trend: Bold color blocks"This is the first time in awhile that the runways have been so colorful and I think itís a reaction to the bad economy," says Kotsiopoulos. "They're making more accessible basics with beautiful bright colors for spring." To get this look, pick contrasting colors that aren't too matchy-matchy such as orange and green while incorporating neutral colors like tans and blacks to make it modern. "You can't wear head to toe color blocks, you'll look clownish," warns Kotsiopoulos. To keep the colored blocks un-clownish and classy, he says to pair it with his ultimate favorite makeup look: the winged tip. "You can't go wrong with this look."
Eye Makeup Look: Winged black eyeliner
"At the Yumi Katsura and Jean Paul Gaultier shows in Paris, the eyes were first lined with a black liquid liner," says Merante. We recommend Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion, $18.
To get this classic look, start at the inner corners of your eyes and work your way outward winging the eyeliner upward at your outer corners. "You can build the liner up to your desired thickness to suit your eye shape," says Merante. After you have the shape you want, take a black powder shadow and smoke out the crisp liquid line for a softer effect. Apply two coats of volumizing mascara on top lashes for that false lash look.
