The make up for the show was very innovative, utilizing liquid eye liner to create a very edgy look that went well with Altuzarra’s global themed collection. Women all over the world will surely love to own this look that features beautiful flawless skin and statement eyes.
Tom Pecheux for MAC cosmetics is the man behind this gorgeous make up for Altuzarra. He described this particular look as “grungy couture” and shared the very easy steps on how to get this striking look.
How to: grungy double eyeliner
Prep your skin by washing it well and then applying makeup primer to make sure your skin is hydrated. It is also better if you use a primer with SPF because this will protect your skin from the sun.
To get that flawless and glowing skin, apply foundation using a sponge or a foundation brush all over your face and use concealer if necessary.
Set the foundation using powder for a matte finish.
Time to take out your secret weapon for this look: eyeliner. Using a gel liner with a brush is recommended but you can opt to use liquid eyeliner instead, it really depends on what you are comfortable working with. Apply eyeliner right above your lash line, starting from the corner of your eyes and working your way outwards. Make sure you extend the eyeliner to create that winged effect.
The next step is to create the second line and the best way to describe it is that it looks like a square root sign. Using the eyeliner again, start drawing this vertical line in between the corner of your eye and the bridge of your nose. Move upwards and then continue the line across your eye going towards the outside corners, make sure this line is as long as the one right above your lash line. This second line is the one that really creates a bold statement.
The next thing you need to do is to add a bit of color to make this look bolder than it already is. Take a shimmery eye shadow shade like silver or silver blue and dab it on the inner corners of the second line, more specifically the area between the inner corner of your eye and the bridge of your nose.
This look is all about the eyes so for the lips, you are best off with a very natural or neutral shade of lipstick or lip gloss.
For the full look, pair your grungy statement eyeliner with matching tousled bed hair.
