Step into 2018 ahead of the game. Here at Skinstore we are makeup obsessed and that bodes well, as it means we can bring you the predicted makeup trends for Spring 2018.
We all saw the catwalk shows. We saw Alexander Wang keep it casual with gorgeous glowing skin, Chanel combine turquoise eyes and red glossy lips, Versace stay sultry with bronze smokey eyes and Tom Ford exhibit metallic winged eyeliner and who better to take inspiration from than the fashion gurus themselves?
Let’s Talk Cat Eyes
Cat eyes, or otherwise know as winged liner have always been a personal favorite of mine. To me, as a makeup artist you can take an everyday makeup look into an evening look with a simple cat eye. They’re super enticing and will instantly draw people into your eyes.
There are so many versions of winged eyeliner, you can line the top and the bottom or you can just wing from the outer corners. The possibilities are endless but the products are the same.
I merged two awesome brands together to make the most amazing metallic eyeliner, just like the models from the Tom Ford catwalk. It is the Loose Concentrate Eyeshadow From Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in the shade ‘ Distortion’ and The Illamasqua sealing gel.
When you mix a little of the eyeshadow with some of the sealing gel it creates a waterproof liquid gel that’s easy to apply and lasts all day. The micro fine pearly pigments in the OCC eyeshadow enhance the metallic finish. To achieve a super sharp wing, apply with the OCC angle brush.
