Bold Eye Makeup: Christina Ricci And Kourtney Kardashian

As much as I tend to rant about the comeback of some 80s trends that weren't a good idea even in 1985, there's one thing I'm quite happy about (and it's not rollups): colorful eye makeup. Of course, we're not talking Cyndi Lauper or Pete Burns here. Today's green and blue eye shadows and bold eyeliners are a far cry from what we had then, and we wear them differently. If we know what's good for us, that is.

The trick is to keep it simple and only use one bright eyeliner or shadow at a time. So even if those makeup palette are a gorgeous mosaic of color (see the new one from Chanel), use them separately. Christina Ricci here is wearing a well-blended silvery color with a hint of sage green. I think she's adorable.

But then we have Kourtney Kardashian showing us how a very similar color can go wrong:

Photos of Christina Ricci and Kourtney Kardashian: The Superficial


  1. Christiana Ricci looks adorable in a polished grown up way. The delicate sage on her eyelids makes her eyes really glow and compliments her warm complexion and the red glints in her hair. She's really got it right. She's autumn personified! As for Kourtney, she's a lovely girl but she's trying way too hard to look like the other Kardashian ladies. She'd be better off cultivating her own style which seems to be more casual and low keyed.

  2. Eileen, I think "trying too hard" is the Kardashian moto.

  3. Christina Ricci...mmmm. *thmp!*
