Dior’s Spring 2014 runway, set under a canopy of bright foliage, was meant to depict a beautiful yet eerie garden. Though Raf Simon’s striking collection featured a parade of neons, vibrant floral motifs and shimmering brocade, the makeup was arguably the most eye-catching aspect of the show. Makeup artist Pat McGrath had created variations on the theme of gold brocade. The most dramatic of her trio of looks consisted of golden and pastel blue eyes topped by gilded brows. Believe it or not, with a few tweaks this over-the-top look is very wearable. We’ll show you how to recreate a no-fuss version of this golden girl look.
