Now This is How You Wear Blue Eyeliner

By Wendy Rodewald-Sulz / September 30, 2014

In a season with beauty looks so minimal that “sweaty” qualified as a trend, it’s downright refreshing to see a statement like the one makeup master Tom Pecheux created for Elie Saab. Backstage at the designer’s Paris show on Monday, Pecheux blended two MAC Eye Shadows, Steamy and Freshwater, to create an aquatic ombré effect on model’s eyes. The showstopper was the almost-neon aqua pencil used on the inner rims, which made the girls’ eyes glow bright blue on the runway.

But our favorite part of the look is the way the color is concentrated just around the perimeter of the lash lines (think about how different — and less sophisticated — this makeup would look with blue extended onto lid and crease). Sometimes a little restraint goes a long way.
