Makeup looks for couture shows are rarely wearable for those of us who actually have to leave the house wearing makeup. But the look presented at Valentino Spring Couture 2012 for Paris Fashion Week is actually achievable and will not drive our neighbors to call the men in white coats for us. Superstar makeup artist Pat McGrath used pencil eyeliner and powder eye shadow to draw little squares at the outside corners of models’ eyelids. The idea is nearly bare face that celebrates perfect skin (or, well, the perfectly made up equivalent), slightly lightened brows (use a brown eyebrow mascara) and the blunt eye liner.
We can make it work.
