The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 beauty look was Kabuki-mask inspired, but the stand-out part of this expressive look was some majorly winged eyeliner.
The collection was an homage to Japanese design and culture and Kabuki-mask inspired looks were all dramatic brows and colourful face paint.
If you’re someone who tends to be late because of dodgy eyeliner, you might be lucky if you’re brave enough to pull this look off. You can forget about stressing over the perfect liner anymore because a bold and imperfect look is what you’re going for here – as you can see, the more liner, the better.
Make-up artist Pat McGrath described on Instagram how the look was created using her Dark Star 006 Black Smudge Eyeliner Kohl.
