Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2011 Couture
I was trying to think which one of the beauty looks I featured this year would make for brilliant New Years Eve makeup. Emma Watson’s golden smoky eye comes to mind. As do Gucci’s F/W cherry lip and Jil Sander’s teal lined eyes. There is one, however, I haven’t touched on yet, and that is Jean Paul Gaultier’s swan-like eyes from his Fall 2011 Couture presentation.

Maybe the lower lash line is best left unlined off the runway, but I really love what’s happening on the lids. It’s kind of a Black Swan-inspired look. I’m thinking tons of primer, then the white pencil outlines, followed by a feather effect black eyeliner.

I feel like NYE is one of those times that you can get away with very flamboyant makeup. A couple of years ago, I wore my Shu Uemura gold eyelashes and no one thought I was crazy. What are your NYE makeup plans?
