Gwen Lu in Elle Accessories Fall 2008 Look/FOTD

I've been feeling so inspired lately to recreate looks that I see in modeling campaigns, especially ones on Asian models. This look is a recreation of one done on Gwen Lu and I absolutely loved how the liner was drawn. I altered the shape a bit because Gwen has a very different eye shape than me (more of a monolid whereas I have a double eyelid) and also because the bottom liner was tricky for me to do. I found the picture through Powderdoom (one of my favorite makeup tumblrs!)


and the inspiration picture. I only wish I could have cheekbones like that.
