Body Language: All About Eyes

Spotted: The newest “graphic eye” trend, a miracle primer to destroy dark circles and more

DuJour’s “Body Language” column offers short tidbits of info about one specific body part each week. This week, it’s all about eyes.

 

1. THE TREND: REVERSE CAT EYE

If the makeup backstage at New York Fashion Week is any indication, we’re predicting a breakthrough beauty trend: the reverse cat eye.

MAC created the look for Carmen Marc Valvo—a dramatic parallel line on the upper and lower lashes—and celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen gave models a similarly edgy look at Nicholas K.

 

2. THE PRODUCT: UNDER EYE ILLUMINATOR

Looking in the mirror after a long night of tossing and turning can be a horrifying experience. A pair of swollen, half-shut eyes stare back at you, and suddenly you realize that no amount of concealer can remedy the situation. A lady of leisure might slice and apply a fresh cucumber, but if time is of the essence, we’ve discovered the next best thing: Hydrolyze Instant Under Eye Illuminating Serum by Hydroxatone. A quick swipe of this stuff under your everyday concealer leaves your eyes noticeably brighter and less scary-looking. Hydrolyze Instant Under Eye Illuminating Serum, $49, Hydroxatone, $49, Ulta.com

 

3. THE INSPIRATION: BAND OF OUTSIDERS

We’re loving the dark, rounded sunglasses donned by the models at the Band of Outsiders fall 2014 presentation. Props to designer Scott Sternberg—the almost always awkward Lennon-esque lens shape just got immensely more sophisticated.
