Strong eyes are a huge trend this year and nothing gives your eyes that striking impression quite like kohl eyeliner. A trend in itself this year, the use of kohl eyeliner has been seen in many different runway shows and jumping on the bandwagon is Kenzo.
Fall / winter 2013 for Kenzo meant strong silhouettes and bold prints. Taking cue from this, MAC make up artist Aaron De Mey created a kohl eyeliner look that is truly one of a kind. The result is a futuristic Maharaja look that accentuated the under eye and had soft nude lips. A makeup look that is straight to the point and direct, it truly speaks for itself and you can have it in a few easy steps.
How to: Kenzo’s “futuristic Maharaja” make up
First things first, you have to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. You get this by simply having a good priming routine. For this Kenzo make up look, MAC Studio Finish SPF 15 Concealer was mixed with a moisturizer and then applied evenly on the face to create an even skin tone. This will also help your make up stay on longer.
Now it’s time to work on your eyes, start by taking kohl eye pencil something like MAC’s Smolder Eye Kohl. Apply this on the waterline or roots of your lower lashes in straight line to give it more of that Indian look.
This futuristic Maharaja is completed with soft nude lips. Start working on this by applying Translucent Powder on the edges of your lips.
There are many sources of inspiration when it comes to make up like this look from Kenzo. Who would’ve thought that a different approach on eyeliner can turn an otherwise normal everyday look into a “futuristic Maharaja”? This look is perfect for those days when you just want to draw someone in with your beautiful eyes.
