Forever in the pursuit of discovering (and recreating) the sexiest eye makeup ever, we’ve recently been inspired by what we’ve seen in the beauty department from Milan’s Fall 2015 shows. From the unconventional use of liquid eyeliner at Fendi to perfectly shadowed lower lids at Roberto Cavalli, steal these looks straight from the runway for your next night on the town.
For Roberto Cavalli's fall show, the eye makeup was all about a glossy lid and smoky shadow under the eye. Recreate the look as makeup artist Petros Petrohilos did on the models by blending MAC Eyeshadow in Knight Divine under the lower lid, followed by a swipe of Eye Kohl applied into the upper and lower waterline. For a glossy effect, use your fingertips to dab MAC's Mixing Medium Shine onto the upper eyelid, and finish with a swipe of a volumizing mascara.

We love the intentionally undone approach to the eye makeup at Fendi. By creating brush strokes with an eyeliner pen that extended to both the inner and outer corners of the eye, the effect was sultry and unique. Recreate the look with Dior's Art Pen eyeliner applied haphazardly to the eyelid (play around with the pattern—the more imperfect, the better) and several coats of mascara to achieve a slightly clumpy, dramatic effect.

Giorgio Armani took dramatic shading to the next level for his Fall '15 runway, sending models down the catwalk with a bold swipe of shadow in the crease of their eyelid. Recreate the look by sweeping a rosy shadow just above the crease, followed by a smaller stroke of bronze on top of it to create a two-tone effect. Smudge a bit of color into the upper lash line and just below the outer corner of the eye to add definition to the area.
