In the Spring of 2014 we have a choice. The bold lip or the glossy eye. Jill Stuart chose the latter of the two. Lucky for us, I got to go backstage, meet this "modern-day rockstar's girlfriend" and get the deets.
Her skin seems surprisingly fresh considering she's been out all night, which is made obvious by the clumpy creases on her eye lids and her unkept, once waved, piecey locks. I guess that's just it... the coolest girl in the room isn't too concerned with what we think... Rock on girl.
"Strong eyes are best offset by a flawless complexion. Use a creamy concealer strategically only where needed to disguise redness and set with powder, while letting your natural cheek color shine through. Add dimension with a light application of glossing cream on cheekbones, bridge of nose, and chin." - Artist Aaron de Mey for SEPHORA
To create the glowing complexion they used:
"Using a creamy black eye pencil, sketch around the upper and lower lash line, and smudge into the crease. Add a dot of silver shadow to the inner corners to add a touch of brightness. Finish with a glossy look by dabbing clear gloss on the lid with fingertips, or blend with the pencil to help smudge and create a gray effect. Finish with generous coats of black mascara."
"Brows are combed through with soft color to frame and flatter the eye."
"Leave lips bare, or add a dab of balm for a healthy touch."
- Sephora Pro Team
To create the imperfect, glossy eye they used:
Remember that not long after you apply the clear gloss to the lid, you will get a crease. It's part of the look and seriously so what, you're a rock star! xb
Big shout out to this rockstar, thanks Lindsey!
