New York Fashion Week Trendspotting: Statement Eyes

Posted by February 11, 2013 11:15 am

Jason Wu's matte purple cat eye is sure to start the newest trend - the Catte Eye. 

 

Altuzarra's eye makeup consisted of grey shadow covering the lid from lashes to brows, plus brown shadow lining the outer half of the bottom lash line. 

 

Emerson chose to go with ultra thick black cat eyes. 

 

Monique Lhuillier showed sharp, graphic shadow going from the inner corner of the eye out past the lid, ending just before the temple. 

 

Ruffian's monochromatic red look used the same shadow on the eyes and cheeks. 

 

Libertine's statement eyes were kept as the focal point with nude lips and a center part. 

 

Nicholas K featured dark grey shadow encompassing the entire lid and then some. 

 

Thakoon's sparkling indigo eyeshadow took inspiration from starry, summer nights. 

 

Rag & Bone's floating eyeliner was all anyone could talk about backstage at the show. 

 

Kate Spade's '70s glam showed off thick cat eyes.
