The eye was actually Kates reference of moths wings. A very intensely winged, kind of worn-down black, a little bit broken, a biker version of Bardot with a slightly punkier shape.
Im liking tougher takes on classic beauty where the eyes are a little but square or a little bit more punk – its a little bit more urban. Thats real girls these days, they break their hair up, they smudge their eyeliner, they like creases on their eyelids; its the whole culture of very worn beauty – worn and broken – a lot of girls dont like their makeup looking perfect cause they dont find that sexy.
Im going to flesh their lip cause I kinda the idea of it looking quite monochromatic so Im going to use the Lip Erase product from M.A.C. Pro to take the lips to the colour of the skin so its got this gorgeous modern monochromatic thing where all you see is just eye – a strip of eye.
