Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2015 makeup

At the Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2015, it was all about the graphic black cat eye, a runway classic.

This time, it got updated with an extra-dramatic shape, extending diagonally towards the outermost edges of the brows, and also squared off at the inner corners, dipping down at the tear ducts. 

It also didn't keep to the lash line. This cat eye functions as both liner and shadow, since it has a strong horizontal shape whose top edge finishes at or just above the crease. 

The rest of the makeup stayed fresh and clean, save for bold brows emphasized with my new obsession, Maybelline Brow Drama (coming in October!).
