Toronto Fashion Week Fall 2015 beauty: Blue eyeliner makes its triumphant return
Ah, blue eyeliner. Are there any two words in the beauty industry more ’80s-flashback-inducing? Backstage at yesterday’s Toronto Fashion Week shows, we spotted two very different—but equally bright—iterations of the trend, and somehow our most-feared look quickly became the most intriguing.
First, at Hayley Elsaesser (left), makeup artist Grace Lee applied a short stripe (about half an inch) of blue eyeliner in the middle of models’ lower lash lines for a bold, but not at all overwhelming, pop of colour that was fresh and modern in a way we never imagined blue liner could be.
For a bolder look, the arctic-inspired Mackage Fall 2015 show (right) featured models sporting thick colour-blocked liner in blue and black (white and gold?) that extended straight from the inner corners of each eye right across to the end of the models’ brows for a clean, graphic look.
We can’t believe we’re saying this, but someone pass the blue eyeliner. We’re officially converts.
