SMOLDERING SUMMER EYES

For spring and summer 2009 standout eyes were a key trend on the runway. Virtually every show at New York Fashion week featured false eyelashes that added a sense of ethereal drama to the spring '09 makeup trends.

Jewel Tones
Jewel tones are making a dramatic statement this summer, choose an eye shadow that compliments your skin tone, whether it is peacock blue or a saturated amethyst. Our model has beautiful dark skin and brown eyes that were screaming for a dark lavender shadow. We used a foundation layer of Girlie Girl lashes and added Play Thing as a second layer to the outer half of the eyes finishing with a thin layer of black eyeliner on the lid and bottom lash line.
Naturally Beautiful
Playing up your natural beauty is always a trend to follow. Our model wore very feminine, neutral makeup that accented her blue eyes and false lashes made her eyes stand out for a softer doe-eyed effect. To recreate this romantic look, try Dream Girl lashes paired with shimmery neutral shadow and soft complimentary liner.
Cat Eyes
The spirit of the 60's is in full swing this summer with black-rimmed cat eyes for a sexy, Brigitte Bardot look. Apply a base layer of Triple Trouble lashes and Poll Dancer to create a dramatic cat eye effect paired with bold black liner. Minimal makeup on cheeks and lips is all you need to complete this seductive 60's look.
