Bold, painterly eyes were the look of choice on the Chanel, Altuzarra, and Dior fall 2014 runways. At the Kenzo show, makeup artist Aaron de Mey achieved the effect using MAC’s saturated Chromaline pots, conjuring Isabella Rossellini’s electric eye shadow in Blue Velvet. The hyperpigmented cream gel, which comes in ten waterproof, smudgeproof shades like Hi-Def Cyan and Genuine Orange (shown here, $20 each at maccosmetics.com), can be used as either a liner or a shadow, depending on how House of Gaga you want to go. For those looking for something more understated, swipe it across your lash line, and you have a just-unsubtle-enough alternative to the everyday cat eye.
