I was so obsessed with the sci-fi / futuristic eye makeup on the Dior runway for Fall.  Chartreuse mascara, cobalt and fuchsia mascara, creamy silver shadow… just too cool!  Truth be told, I’m not sure I’m brave enough to try it… though I sure am tempted to give it a go next time I have a party or big event.  (The cobalt eye is probably the most wearable look.)  I don’t know if this trend is going to gain any traction in real life, but isn’t it fun to look at?

get the look:  fuchsia eye liner // silver shadow // orange lip // chartreuse eye liner // chartreuse mascara

get the look:  white eyeliner

get the look:  cobalt liner + cobalt mascara

    I totally would have tried it in college. But nowadays, I think I’d be willing to try either the silver shadow, or the bright liner + mascara, just not both together. The bright liner + mascara definitely sounds fun — I can see it not being too crazy if you keep everything else very light and subtle.

      Hahaha, yeah, it’s a bit risky. But so fun to stare at!

    aghhhh these are so pretty!  I’m like you, I love it, but wouldn’t dare trying it.  BUT!  Could you imagine having a huge runway inspired halloween party where everyone could go over the top avant garde like this?!  I bet it’d be amazing!
