Black Eyeliner Has Never Been Better

screen-shot-2017-10-05-at-8-32-30-am-1507206770

If this past season is anything to go on, a black liner (or perhaps a wardrobe of them) promises seemingly infinite possibilities for transformation. Whether inky pens were used to paint a razor-sharp wing or smudged kohl simulated suggestively slept-in makeup, the runways demonstrated loads of ideas for wielding your favorite black eyeliner. Behold your new favorite ways to make your mark.

1. UNDER LINE
Not for the faint of heart or tired of eye, a crisp slick of black reserved for the lower lash lines provided an unexpected twist on typical top lined lids.
At Isa Arfen, makeup artist Andrew Gallimore traced lower lids with Nars Black Valley Eye Paintfor a modern take on traditional “Kabuki makeup.”

Hands Off! The Coolest Girls Won’t Be Carryling a Bag Next Season

gettyimages-856763820-1507224193

Anyone who has drunken the cross-body Kool-Aid can attest to the addictive nature of not having to hold a handbag. Allowing it to rest easily on your hip isn’t only a breeze, it also has that “devil-may-care spirit” to it, or—as they say here in Paris—a certain je ne sais quoi. Carine, known to forgo bags in lieu of pockets, perhaps exemplifies this better than any one else. Fortunately for us all, this freedom doesn’t simply stop there. This week’s Paris runwaysoffered plenty of riffs on the concept.

And Bella's reaction is too sweet.

Bella Hadid turns 21 today, but her older sister, Gigi, started celebrating a day early. Yesterday, the model, 22, wished her sibling happy birthday with an adorable throwback photo from the day Bella was born.
In the shot, a toddler-aged Gigi (decked out in a red outfit and pigtails) holds her infant little sis while their mother, Yolanda Hadid, watches over them. "TOMORROW WILL BE 21 YEARS SINCE I MET MY FOREVER BESTIE @bellahadid ❤️ (me wearing all red on your actual day of birth is MAJOR and possibly the reason it's your favorite color 😜)," she wrote in the caption.

rimowa80-instagram-still-image-1x1-1200x1200px-carine-roitfeld-1507567843

Everyone loves to celebrate their birthday with friends, as Rimowa did with a lavish model-filled party during Paris Fashion Week. But today the iconic aluminum luggage company is going a step further marking its 80th anniversary, with a photo-series of personal luggage from some of its most notable clients—including the suitcase of our own Carine.

“I’m always looking for something new,” she offered. “Travel possesses the same purpose—it takes me to the new.” For those who are curious, Carine’s case (seen above) is on the smaller side of the rollers, and has been personalized with a series of green stickers on the front.

Rimowa first began crafting aluminum luggage in 1937. But the company really made its mark in the 1950s when...

Saffron, Orange, And Honey Madeleines

Saffron, Orange, And Honey Madeleines

Traditionally, madeleines are best eaten as close to coming out of the oven as possible. Here, untraditionally, we forgo all the beating and just place the ingredients in a food processor. Mixing them this way means that the resulting madeleines won’t be quite as light as those made by hand-whisking, but they’re every bit as delicate and buttery as you’d hope. We do it this way to build in a little bit of robustness, which allows them to still be eaten hours (rather than minutes) after they come out of the oven. This recipe is from Sweet, a cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh. Read their tips for making intimidating-seeming desserts at home, right this way.
