Glossy Mauve and Dusty Rose Eyeshadow | EDIT

In Document's fall/winter 2014 issue (available for order, here), model Larissa Hofmann is styled in earth tones, from the dusty rose you see here to charcoal grey coats, burnt sienna skirts, and caramel sweaters. See the rest of this gorgeously styled editorial, here. The eye makeup, though, is what really caught my eye -- reminiscent of some of the models at Diane von Furstenburg's Fall 2014 runway show, one particularly glossy set of eyelids seen backstage shown here (bottom photo). It's not just a dusty rose -- see the hints of mauve? Makeup artist James Kaliardos "mixed a shimmery gray cream shadow with a deep Bordeaux lipstick to create the shadow that went on models' lids," finishing with a clear gloss patted over lids to achieve a ballet-school-girl "no-makeup" look. On Larissa, the color extends to the bottom lash line, for more of a mauve/pink smoky eye look.

For us non-internationally-renowned-makeup-artist types, go directly for a mauve and pink eyeshadow set (unless you have some gray cream shadow laying around...and some time on your hands!): Try Chanel's LumiƩres Facettes Quadra Eyeshadow in 'Quadrille' -- a limited edition set, which includes shades of 'lavender grey'and a 'rosy apricot.' Or, a similar drugstore option is Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow in Legend Lilac ($9.99) which includes a mauve grey, a deeper purple, and a dusty pink shade.
