Backstage at New York Fashion Week this season, makeup artists got creative with eyeliner. Click through for some major eye-spiration.
To complement the outdoorsy aesthetic of Thakoon's collection, makeup artist Diane Kendal applied NARS' brown Mambo Eyeliner Pencil to just the bottom half of the eye.
At Richard Chai, makeup artist Romy Soleimani played with the contrast between hard and soft. She lined the lower lash line with black liner and an ethereal, metallic sage shadow under the eye.
Makeup artist Val Garland's futuristic cat eye for Hervé Léger was created using Temptu's S/B Hi-Def in Black and designed to emulate speed.
Gucci Westman's bold cat eye at Rag & Bone, applied just above the top lash line, was inspired by French Yé-Yé girls of the mid-'60s.
To add a punk edge to Zac Posen's super-glamorous collection, MAC artist Kabuki drew sweeps of horizontal lines from the inner lid and crease through the outer edge and upwards.
James Boehmer, NARS' director of global artistry, applied a metallic blue liner on the lash line at Creatures of the Wind in order to brighten the eyes.
An intense cat eye was the main focus of the beauty look at Karen Walker's modern suffragette-inspired collection. To achieve the look, makeup artist Benjamin Puckey used Obsessive Compulsives Cosmetics Colour Pencil in Tarred.
To narrow the eye for a moody effect at Mara Hoffman, makeup artist Alice Lane applied Maybelline's Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Midnight Master on both the lower lash line and across the bottom of the eye to the outer corner.
At Tanya Taylor, Uzo, NARS' international lead makeup stylist, left a gap in the center of the lower lash line to give the eye a modern, graphic edge.
Avon global celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen created a reverse cat eye at Nicholas K using SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Blackout.
To achieve the reformed rocker look girl at Jill Stuart, makeup artist Aaron de Mey layered a combination of Maybelline Eye Studio Master Smoky Eye in emerald, navy and violet under the lash line and then smudged it with a soft brush.
