Backstage scoop: India Fashion Week, F/W 2008
Sweeping, Amy Winehouse-inspired black eyeliner dictated runway glamour during India’s Fall/Winter Fashion week. This look requires a little practice, and a steady hand. Using a pencil liner, line your upper and lower lash line, then switch to a liquid liner (I’d recommend a felt-tip variety) and trace over upper lash liner. Next (and here’s the somewhat tricky part) extend the liquid liner towards the outer corners of your eye, making it gradually thicker, flicking it in an upward motion at the tail. The key to this look is balance between both eyes. Smudge lower lash liner for a smoky effect, if desired. Polish off with mascara, and pair these dramatic eyes with matte skin, sheer blush and pink gloss, to mimic the look. Here’s a behind-the-scenes-glimpse at a model getting primped for Vijay Arora’s show.
