Beauty Trend: Messy Eyeliner


It’s time to get smoky and sultry with smeared eyeliner for Fall 2010.

The bedhead look is a style that will be seen around come fall, and what goes better with a messy set of locks than grungy eyeliner?

A messy liner will give you that fabulous Kate Moss circa 1992 look that we’ve always coveted.

Make-up artists got creative on the runway showing off their smearing talents.

From colorful liners to designs replicating fashion prints, check out the runway looks below for tips on how to take your smoky eyes to the next level.




What better way to highlight Karl Lagerfeld’s black and white collection with a nude face and splattered black eyes at Chanel’s Fall 2010 runway show (left).  Colorful, creative and a little clownish, Miu Miu uses bright orange and purple hues in painted half circles around the eyes (right).

Zac Posen’s trashy, chic, under eye make-up manages to still look pretty with painted red lips and wavy locks (left). 

Black liner, splattered pigment and colorful shadows smudged around the eye are fun looks for Fall 2010.

So go ahead and keep a little of that after-party make-up on from the night before as you head out to Sunday brunch.
