For Rodarte’s sea-inspired spring collection, makeup artist James Kaliardos wanted to create a look that was “cool, but not too punk.” And what’s more punk than a whole eyebrow’s worth of piercings? “They’re just cool facial accessories,” Kaliardos said of the silver rings, which were temporarily adhered to models’ eyebrows with glue.
For the rest of the face, he used a luminous cream foundation and pressed powder to give skin a glow appearance. On the eyes, he used a dark pink-brown tone over the lid, pulling the shade around the outer corners in a downward arc. Underneath, he drew a thin line of eyeliner to “lift up the eyes” and lightly dusted a metallic gold shade for a little shimmer.
But the standout, of course, were the brows, which may have inspired a few models to consider making the look a bit more permanent.
