This Season’s Most Coveted Look: Smoke Hazard

We’ve been discussing the season’s most coveted looks in the last few posts. We think Smoke Hazard is the sexiest look of all!


The ever-evolving smoky eye is back in shades of urban grey and classic black with strong accents of pine green, midnight blue and violet femme. Rock-‘n’-roll and grunge were huge inspirations at the fall 2012 collections.

  • Marc Jacobs and Rag & Bone showed looks that were more grunge then rock-‘n’-roll. Detail was not perfected and intensity was kept at the lash lines for that ‘I’ve done it myself’ touch.
  • Frankie Morello was a stand out with a Black Swan meets punk rock look. Pitch black shadow created a geometric shape horizontally across the upper lid, yet left the center of the lid nude and untouched.
  • John Galliano’s ‘Windswept Mermaid’ is a wearable favorite with a beautifully blended, dramatic smoky eye touched with iridescent emerald green on the lid.
  • Roberto Cavalli combined pine green and violet over the classic black smoky eye with a gold highlight on the inner corner of the eye.
  • Chanel went rhapsody in blue, rimming the eyes with glistening navy pencils.
  • Prada had the show-stopping smoky eye. Pitch black pigment painted the eye from lash line to brow and was framed with a haze of orange cream shadow. Purple pencil lined the lower lash line to finish and frame with an almond shape; the eye was then cut through the water line with white liner, extending to make the eye appear larger.
