Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2018 Bold Cat-eye Dominated the Runway

Louis Vuitton showed its Resort 2018 Collection in Kyoto, Japan. Nicolas Ghesquière’s designs were a result of his collaboration with the Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto. The show took place at the Miho Museum and many A-listers were spotted in the front row. The runway was full of bold extravagant designs that resembled the unconventional film series from the 70s Stray Cat Rock.

There is one more thing that dominated the show besides Nicolas’s designs. One of the greatest makeup artists of all time, Pat McGrath set up a higher standard for graphic eyeliner. She brought an extreme cat-eye with bold black wings, overly extended from the outer corners, to the Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2018 runway. To create the major wing, Pat used her Dark Star 006 black smudge liner.

The makeup felt like a recreation of the kabuki makeup characteristic for the Japanese kabuki actors, but with major modifications to make it more runway-ready. The result was overly dramatic brows, probably the boldest you have ever seen. After having so many brow trends lately, we wonder if these samurai-inspired intense black eyebrows will become a trend on Instagram.

Even if the exaggerated liner and bold black brow look doesn’t intrigue social media enough, we are pretty sure that this will be a perfect match for those who nurture the rebellious no-rules street-style.

Pat McGrath and her fellow makeup artists used colorful pigments and played with their brushes all over model’s faces to create edgy futuristic looks that match Ghesquière’s rebellious designs.

Shades of blue, pink and red were used instead of a regular contour. The colorful shades gave another dimension to the model’s faces and infused the complete look with an additional dose of edginess.

The whole accent was on the brows and the eyes with no attention to the lips whatsoever. Models wore matte foundation covered with vivid pigments and at most times contrasting colors.

Like most runway makeup looks, this one is not really wearable. You probably won’t see people wearing winged eyeliner that almost meets their hairline on the streets. But just in case you wake up one day and feel extra bold, Pat McGrath has given you enough inspiration to express yourself.
