AW11 beauty trends you can rock NOW
The soft kohl flick
Kohls are too heavy for summer, right? Wrong! Francois Nars kept the soft kohl flick at Marc Jacobs AW11 neat and clean, using a photo Marc had found of Christy Turlington with really bright, supermodel skin. The soft kohl flick for AW11 is fresh enough for you to wear all the way through to next spring.
1. Prepare the skin around the eye with NARS Concealer £17.50 - this look is all about a clean lid that anchors the liner.
2. Gently sweep Lokoum Cream Blush £20.50 from the lashline right up to the brow for this matte, sun-kissed look.
3. Apply Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil £16.50 - start at the middle of the lashline and gently draw out towards the outer corner. Finish with a wing from the outer corner of your eye, following the natural shape of your eye, but with a slight downward slant rather than the traditional 1950s upward flick. Take the pencil back to the inner corner and join up to the centre, and along the inner rim of the upper lid for added depth.
4. Finish with Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara £18.50 through the upper and lower lashes. Wiggle the wand right into the roots, and use the tip to fan out the inner and outer corner lashes.
