There’s a freedom to eye liner this season.

Yes, it may be black and it may seem feline and it most definitely is graphic but when it comes to drawing the line, there are more options than ever.

Whether you choose this calliagraphy-style ink along the lash line – as seen at Edun and Coach, the blunt-edge designs at Badgley Mischka and Suno or perhaps the flipped version spotted at Marc Jacobs and DKNY – this beauty look is about making your mark and being your own face artist.

Fodder for a Friday night DIY, perhaps?


Sure, beauty may have taken a turn for the all-natural of late, but a solid contingent of makeup artists dialled up the fantasy factor at New York Fashion Week recently.

Of particular note? Opulent metals, copper highlights and gold sparkle look best when offset by dewy skin and groomed brows. Don’t believe us? Just look to Altuzarra and Marchesa.
