Unconventional eye colour

I have, personally, a very strong attachment to liquid eyeliner. Specifically of the winged-out, cat eye kind. But using black liquid eyeliner as well as applying colourful eyeshadow doesn’t always work out for the best (for me anyway), particularly if you’re going for a contrastingly light coloured shadow and don’t have time to blend. Here’s an alternative from the pages of Vogue Nippon’s beauty supplement: dramatic black liquid liner flanked neatly by a single bold colour.

Here a liquid colour of orange, warm yellow or bright turquoise is used to add a pop of colour to an otherwise classic look. Along with rich lipstick complimenting the eyes, it’s like colour blocking for your face.

The shoot stars Crystal Renn and was photographed by Giampaolo Sgura, with makeup by Jessica Nedza and styling by Anna Dello Russo.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
