VAMFF 2014: Runway 5 Look Recreation

This week, I’m doing a brand focus on L’Oreal to celebrate the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (formerly known as L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival). This brand focus is not sponsored content.

VAMFF 2014: Runway 5 Look Recreation

L’Oreal Paris is really amping up the winged liner look big time this year. There are plenty of winged-liner looks that are gracing the runway and I thought I’d try to recreate one of them. Now I’m no makeup expert so it’s just my interpretation of the look with the products that were used. I don’t have all of the products mentioned in the look book so I substituted with other L’Oreal products instead.

The look I recreated came from the one made for Runway 5 (by Cosmopolitan). As you can see, that model had one heck of a winged liner. Think Sharpie pen all over the lid and extending that to where the brow ends. The Super Liner Blockbuster really is like a Sharpie and makes drawing that much eyeliner on much, much quicker.

I didn’t extend my eyeliner all that much but I had fun using that black marker-like eyeliner all over my eyelids. I was like a kid colouring her eyes with her mother’s makeup pencil. All that eyeliner was probably a bit too much for me but I have to say, I did enjoy recreating the dramatic look especially with such big, er, wings. I used tape at the corner of my eyes to make sure I get that precise flick and I got it!

Is this something I’d do again and actually wear out? Probably not with that much eyeliner but I definitely want to create a more dramatic winged look instead of my usual mini flicks.

      Aww thanks Xin! Initially when I stepped back from the mirror and looked at myself, I was like WOAH! Full on! But after looking at it more, it’s actually not so bad! :P

    I love this! The best part about wearing an eye look like this is that you do not need eyeshadow, and it goes fabulously with bright lips and a nicely done base. Gonna steal this one :D

      Exactly! No eyeshadow at all. Just heaps of marker pen :P

    You look lovely. I suck at doing winged liners and really need to practice more. I like your tip on using tape to get the precise flick but does it affect your foundation or concealer in any way?

    1. Tine

      Here’s a tip I picked up from Rae Morris last year: take a piece of tape (like that size I used), get rid of most of its stickiness by putting the tape on the back of your hand, taking it off, putting it back on, taking it off, etc. Once you’ve done it about 6-10 times, most of the stickiness would be gone. Then place the tape near your eyes. I used this method and it did not affect my foundation and concealer one bit.

    You look lush my dear! Very grown up and fierce, but not nu-approachably so :D

    Off to find some tape to practise doing my own lol!

  8. Tine

    *roar* ;)

    PS: Remove most of the stickiness first!
