Natural makeup with defined eyes a key trend for 2010

Natural makeup with defined eyes a key trend for 2010
As the pared-down aesthetic continues to be a major feature on the catwalks, a kohl eye liner is set to be one of the must-have items for your natural makeup bag this spring.

Jessica Hogan, writing for Vogue magazine, said that liner has now 'stepped up in importance as being the key tool to define eyes' as a result of the natural and minimalistic looks that have been seen in New York, London and Milan.

Kohl pencil-rimmed waterlines featured in the Gucci and Blumarine shows in Milan but the respective makeup artists went for different finishes.

Pat McGrath at Gucci chose a smudged, sultry effect, while Charlotte Tilbury went for the feline finish at Blumarine.

'With many a statement lip often celebrating the arrival of the autumn/winter season, carefully defined eyes are quickly taking centre stage,' Ms Hogan said.

For those ladies who cannot live without their smoky eye, Hilary Mantel, writing for the Guardian, has said that women can update their natural makeup by using purple and navy shadow.
