Beauty Trend To Try: The Brown Winged Eye

Written by 

A heavy black winged-eye too heavy for you? Or maybe, like me, you lack the hands of a surgeon and perfecting black liner is just to hard basket.

To make it runway-worthy, McGrath ran a "brown-gray" pencil along the upper lash lines and flicked it out onto the outer corners and pulled it down toward the tear duct—forming sharp points on the diagonal. The lower lashes were also rimmed in the chestnut hue. For intensity, a hand-mixed, liquid version of the liner shade was run over the top. "She's a stronger, tougher girl this season," added McGrath. But with the beautifully painted ceilings of the Opéra Garnier floating overhead and Sir Paul McCartney sweetly playing the harmonica for his granddaughter backstage, I felt worlds away from the slightly badass image the designer had in mind. - via
