At a time when less is more with regard to makeup, a sexy eye at the spring 2017 shows was a rare sight, indeed. So kudos to Nina Ricci and Altuzarra for sending their models down the runway with cool glossy lids. The makeup artist Karan Franjola created the version here with subtle layers of eye pencil, liquid liner, and cream liner just above the lash line, all of which she smudged with her finger and topped with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. “It’s still a smoky eye, but it’s more sheer,” Franjola says. “And the shine lifts it a bit.” It’s a look that is not only doable but eminently wearable. “After the shoot, the model asked me to leave it on. She wore it to go grocery shopping.”
