Makeup artist Gucci Westman, who applied metallic lipstick as an eyeshadow in spring 2018 runaway, said in the backstage interview: “[This look] is kind of interesting because it’s not wet. I haven’t really seen this before; it’s kind of in-between. It’s like a satin-type finish, which I like.”

Cleopatra comin’atcha! Oh, yeah — get your black eyeliner ready because it’s taking a draa-maa-tic turn in 2018! But how can you get the queen of the Nile eyeliner look? Trace a thick line around both eyelashes, and with an angled brush wing out a thick line at a dramatic angle.
Gucci described the look as “super graphic, super pointy, super dramatic, and heavier along the bottom lashes.”

On Milan Fashion Week, Peter Philips drew graphics but on eyes, as he mixed a different range of colors to get to petrol and touches of blue-green colors that could match the collection, as Peter said backstage at Fendi. He also said, “and then, we shaped a very graphic eye to get a strong, bold effect.” Do you have the courage to try it?

Artist Linda Cantello decided to go further; she wanted to do something more free: She applied white and black shadows and highlights as if it was a painting.
