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
