MAKE UP FOR EVER artist David Hernandez painted up a bevy of glammy runway faces for Eric Tibusch's fashion show in L.A.
About his inspiration: "Think Greta Garbo. I went for a vintage 40s look, with really smoked out eyes. A little bit undone, but also very classy."For the show, he created 3 different smoky eye looks: Raspberry, Yellow, and a Blue-Black.
"Grey is so expected for a smoky eye," he said. "I wanted something that played up the sepia tones of the silver screen, but also had fun with color." David shared his pro tips.
Start by swirling MAKE UP FOR EVER Plum (#39) around the whole eye – up to the brow bone and under eye. Follow up using Matte Dark Purple # 160 as a liner, and smoke out the eye. Top this (and the two other smoky looks) with lots of lashes - David's pick is MAKE UP FOR EVER's wispy, longer false lashes to counteract the intensity of the eye. Finally, finish with MAKE UP FOR EVER's Lipstick in Pearl Raspberry #412.
For this look, David anchored a bright canary hue by mixing in a splash of burnt orange. Start with MAKE UP FOR EVER Yellow Gold #10 all over, from brow bone to under eyes, then smudge a reddish brown into the crease (try Terra Cotta #30). Top it off by using Matte True Brown #162 as a liner to smoke out the eye, then finish up with MAKE UP FOR EVER's Lipstick in a medium mauve like #420.
Start with Slate Grey #33 around the whole eye, then smudge Navy Blue #60 up to the crease, finishing with Black #4 as a liner. The final effect will be a smoky eye that starts black, fades to blue, and ends in grey. Last touch? Lipstick shade #427, Pearly Angel Rose.
