How To: The Derek Lam Eye

Yesterday, we saw one of our favorite makeup looks of the Spring 2014 season so far: Tom Pecheux’s Donald Judd-inspired lids at Derek Lam. In fact, we loved the look so much that we cornered the Éstee Lauder makeup artist after his girls walked the runway and asked him to show us how to achieve that “graphic and contemporary” look at home. Sure, not all of us can have the legend apply it himself, but here's little visual explanation to make D.I.Y.-ing it that much easier. (To recap: Prep lids with a glossy nude shadow; draw 'tilted' boxes with a black pencil; fill in boxes with cream shadow using a square brush; bat lashes.)
