Get The Look: Rodarte’s Smokey Eyes At NY Fashion Week

September 14, 2011

Rodarte’s ethereal, navy smokey eye and pale lips will be a huge look for spring/summer, as seen at last night’s NY Fashion Week runway show.

The inspiration:

“It’s a really beautiful, round, smoky eye with gradations of blue,” said lead artist James Kaliardos for NARS Cosmetics. “It’s like (Van Gogh’s painting) ‘Starry Night’ and then there’s this beautiful lavender lip, complemented by warm skin.”


Start with NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (look out for their upcoming Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, or use your favourite tinted moisturiser).

Dab Penny Lane Cream Blush into the cheeks.


Blend Rue Saint Honore Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner (look out for Dark Rite Soft Touch Shadow Pencil released soon) with Night Flight Single Eyeshadow, Tropic Single Eyeshadow and Rue Bonaparte Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner to create a smokey eye.


Blend Penny Lane Cream Blush and Pearl Beach Cream Eyeshadow across the lips and top with Nana Lip Gloss.

All products are available exclusively at Mecca Cosmetica.
