Last season Givenchy brought a basketball court to the runway and, for S/S 2015, spectators were - excuse the pun - blown away by a suspended art piece called 'Exploded Plane' by artist Paul Veroude. The collection was both severe yet romantic, and Givenchy's Creative Director Riccardo Tisci decided to echo this theme with the models' makeup.
Severe yet Romantic
As the stunning model Irina Shayk left after the Givenchy Men's Fashion Show S/S 2015 in Paris, she gave us a glimpse of her runway makeup: a daring graphic take on the cat eye!
The graphic straight lines and dark black color give this makeup look a dose of intensity, especially against Irina's piercing green eyes. By adding a coat of mascara on her lower lashes, and choosing a natural rose shade for her lip color, the overall look is softened, and takes on a sultry, feminine edge.
Get the Look
If you're looking to recreate this intense yet romantic makeup look, it's easy!
Start by applying primer to the eyelids
Use a thin-tipped liquid liner to draw the outline of your graphic cat eye. Wait to dry.
Fill in your cat eye using a thick black liquid liner, including the entire eyelid. Wait until you are absolutely sure the color is dry.
Focus on applying the mascara to your lower lashes for a wide-eyed effect.
Finish with a liner of kohl or gel liner along your waterline.
You might even want to pair it with a sleek wet look hairstyle!
