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.
