Be My Candy Girl

Miu Miu Fashion runway look F/W 2010

One trend you’ll see coming this Fall, (as seen at the Miu Miu F/W 11 show) are happy, sugared almond color eye shadow. At Miu Miu, at the show and for the ad campaign, the models are seen wearing bright Kelly green and vivid violet around the eye. Kind of a pastel Panda eye look, that went all the way to the (non)existent brow area. The texture had a matte, velvety look with lots of black mascara on the upper and lower lashes. To finish: a hint of pale rose hue for the cheeks and lips.
The noticeable absence of an eye brow made the models look kind of alien-like and was the only thing I didn’t think translated well for the real woman on the street, but if the brows are kept light and feathery ( brush with a small children’s toothbrush coated with hairspray to keep them in place) the look will be easy to recreate.

There are several brands to choose from so I have compiled a few items to make things even easier. Like all the recommendations on this site, I test drive every product and only select the items I feel stand up to my standards. Here are my choices for creating this hot of the runway look for Fall 2010:
