The Bright Side: Dior Couture Eyes


Aline Weber (Next) didn't do coutureshe's more of an Isabel Marant kind of girlbut that doesn't mean she can't appreciate the makeup. When she swung by ITG's studio the day before she headed to her Brazilian hometown for summer break, she admired the Dior couture inspiration pictures I had pinned upthe elaborate, slightly retro, slightly sci-fi eye and lip color-combos Pat McGrath dreamt up for Raf Simons inaugural outing for the French houseand admitted that she, herself, prefers an "eye" over a "lip."

Perfect, because, taking a cue from Pat, I'm putting a color meant for lips on the eyes... a pink stripe is the new cat eye. Add a hit of silver on the lower lash line et voilà: Dior couture made easy.


The look: Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in #9; Dior 1 Couleur Ultra-Smooth High Impact Eye Shadow in 026 Chrome and MAC Casual Colour in Weekend Getaway (on lips and cheeks, applied with MAC 188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush).

    This looks stunning on her! Love the look- a little punk, a little retro, a little (like you say) sci-fi, but still totally chic and surprisingly wearable. Thanks for sharing!


  • ClosetCravings

    Really cool. I think it helps that her eyebrows are bleached; makes the pink pop. Gorgeous model.

    Like you said before, eyes are like the windows into the soul. When you first met someone, the first thing you're gonna look at is his/her eyes. I think this eye makeup looks really good on her, and it really compliments her style. A strong lip would probably ruin this whole casual aesthetic Aline has.

  • Andrea

    great make up!

  • Kate {Modette}

    I love her eye make-up! So gorgeous! x

    I think I might have to try this!! Looks awesome with the bleach hair and green eyes.

    I was thinking of pink eyeshadows....this looks fantastic...why does this model remind me of Claudia Schiffer? And was this model originally a brunette before? she has a striking resemblance to another model from brazil but I believe that model is half japanese i think.

    With all love and respect, there is no "new cat eye." The cat eye is eternal, a stripe of pink liner is a cute fad.

  • murt
