Backstage Beauty: BCBG Max Azria F/W 2011 at New York Fashion Week

The runway look: 70s meets 2011 at BCBG Max Azria.

“Glamorous eyes take center stage against an otherwise natural beauty look,” says Charlotte Willer, Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist.

How to create the eye look: For the perfect well-defined brows, fill them in using Maybelline’s Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil and then add volume with a brush, so they appear more natural. Then using the Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow quad in Call Time from Maybelline, apply the dark brown shade to the crease and sweep under the eye. The golden white shade should be applied to the inner corners of the eyes to make them pop. Next, highlight the brow bone with the neural gold shadow. Finish off by rimming the eyes with black liner.
