InStyle Celebrity Beauty Tip: Emma Robert’s Gorgeous Mod Eye Makeup

 

InStyle Get The Look: Mod Eye Makeup
Perhaps we’re inspired by the swingin’ sixties fashion of Mad Men, but the mod-inspired makeup Emma Roberts wore to the Intermix 20th anniversary party looks like something Megan Draper would pair with her printed shift dresses—save for the modern pop of color. “The real mod eyes used mostly black and white to create a graphic look, but when you play around with color like blue and white, it makes the effect quirkier, softer, and easier to wear for summer,” said Roberts’ makeup artist Nick Barose, who created the look with a double-ended blue and white liner. He lined the star’s upper lash line with the cerulean end, smudged the color with a cotton swab, then ran the white color along Roberts’ waterline. In addition to the mod effect it imparts, white eyeliner also gives you a more-awake appearance by creating the illusion of bigger eyes. If white seems too harsh for you, ease into the trend by using a flesh-toned eyeliner instead, and be sure to work with a sharpened pencil as dull products can tug at your eye. Apply the color before sweeping on mascara—unlike black eyeliner, white tends to be more obvious if it gets on your bottom lashes.

REVLON BRAND AMBASSADOR OLIVIA WILDE AT THE 2013 MET GALA

REVLON Global Brand Ambassador Olivia Wilde attended the 2013 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to celebrate the museum’s new exhibition, “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” in New York City on Monday, May 6th. Celebrity Makeup Artist, Melanie Inglessis, created bold eyes with a focus on heavy liner to complement Olivia’s Calvin Klein cut-out gown, for a sophisticated look with a punk twist.

“I wanted to play off this year’s Met Gala theme as inspiration for Olivia’s look,” said Inglessis. “Olivia has the most beautiful eyes so we really wanted to focus on that. We didn’t want to go too literal, so we opted for a classic black eye liner but double lined it with a white liner to complement Olivia’s white and black dress. To create the eye look I started with a black kajal liner and drew a beautiful, simple line with a very soft winged end. Once I was happy with the shape, I went over it with a crème gel liner to seal the line and keep it looking really black and bold all night. Next I used the white end of the kajal liner and drew a second line above the black on the upper lid. To finish the eyes I smudged a grey cream shadow into the lower lid, curled the lashes twice and swept on three coats of mascara for a tacky somewhat clumpy look.”
