THE tiny and modest corners of the eyes have been being given their chance to shine over the course of New York Fashion Week, as make-up artists are increasingly choosing to make this their favourite area of the face to highlight. Shows such as Preen,Donna KarenThakoon and Narciso Rodriguez all honed in on this neat little nook, showing that, as ever, the beauty of a look can often be found in the minutiae. At Preen, James Kaliardos opted for a matte interpretation of this trend by using a light blue on the inner eyes for a super-modern chalky look that actually had an equally arresting effect as its shimmery counterparts. James states, "to highlight in this area opens up the lids, creating an optical illusion of bigger eyes." The best part? It's an easily adaptable trend that can be recreated alongside a smoky eye for the party season. Get into your corner.

THE talk of the town during New York Fashion Week is always, and justifiably so, the one and only Marc Jacobs. Ever the spectacle, the busy backstage arena was led by Marc's formidable beauty dream team of Francois Nars and Guido Palau. Never ones to disappoint, they chose to go in a very different but equally dramatic direction to celebrate the glamour and decadence of the Seventies, looking to Jerry Hall and Angelica Houston for inspiration. Both backstage supremeos were keen however to give this iconic era a modern twist and reinvent it in their own way. And so, accordingly, eyes were a disco, deep forest green, slicked with a layer of Vaseline against the backdrop of beautifully sheer hyper-real skin, and matte red, stained lips. Whilst in the hair corner, Palau really had his work cut out for him, creating four different looks on the 60 models present (ranging from brushed-out curls to set waves). Palau poignantly spoke of the fluid and constant reinterpretation of beauty throughout the ages, specifically mentioning how women in the Seventies were often trying to channel the mood of the Thirties. Never was a truer word spoken especially seeing as, incidentally, this was the era that make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury focused on for her look at Donna Karen. And so beauty comes full circle. It's all in a days work.
