catwalk to real walk

Posted on   |   Comments (0)
for today's "catwalk to real walk," we looked to tom ford's spring eyewear ad campaign -- starring model carolyn murphy and actor nicholas hoult -- as our source of inspiration. in the ad, murphy sports a serious cat/smoky eye hybrid (and little else, but that's neither here nor there when it comes to the provocative mr. ford):

meee-ow! we loved the drama of the widely-drawn and hyper-extended eye liner, as well as the smoldering shadow, which adds a touch of sultriness. so, we decided to test the look out on our very own heidi. check out the end-product...

on heidi, our makeup artist jessica applied a gray shadow to the eyelids, ending just past the crease. she then used a black kohl eye pencil to thickly line the upper and lower lash lines. next, she took a gel eye liner and applied it to the upper lash line, layered on top of the kohl liner, and extended it outward and up, creating the dramatic cat-eye effect. to top it all off, jessica added a gloss over the gray shadow for a sexy sheen similar to the tom ford ad, and a coat of black mascara. she kept heidi's cheeks and lips a bit more subdued, in order to keep the eyes as the central focus of the look.

all of the products used can be found at nuBest's make-up center. if you have any questions, or if you have a suggestion for a future "catwalk to real walk" feature, let us know by leaving a comment!
