If skulls are the fashion trend that won't die, then smoky eyes are their beauty equivalent. Referenced constantly in pop culture and high fashion, the makeup fad can be grungy, glamorous, or retro - and done a million different ways.
Enter Guerlain, the French beauty company on a terracotta kick. Their obsession with the Italian clay has already birthed a shimmery bronze lip gloss and a pearly bronzer.
Now they've infused their Kohl eyeliner with the same stuff, creating a terracotta powder that can smoke out your eyes with a rich but subtle shade of brown. It's a different kind of look, but one that's easy to pull off with a few minutes in the mirror, and without the goth undertones a stark black liner can sometimes create.
The new Kohl sells for $35, and only retails through Spring. If you're looking to update your look, without overhauling your style, this could be a very good way to go.
