Spring 2009 Vena Cava Beauty

Vena Cava Walks Like an Egyptian

Indie-girl favorite Vena Cava showed off its Spring 2009 collection, which was inspired by Egyptology. While the fashion fiends were plotzing over the design duo's new shoes, I was enjoying Oscar Blandi's "modern mermaid" hair and this take on the smoky eye.

Tina Turnbow led a team of makeup artists working with Stila on this look. Like the clothes, it was inspired by Egypt — but as you can see, it's far from a Cleopatra eye. Instead, it's a light, smoky eye that uses some new eye shadow shades (wait until you see the silver one!) and Kajal eyeliners in Smoky Quartz and Tigers Eye. It's a little smudgy, a little goth, and very sexy indeed. And if you can't get enough Vena Cava, check out the Beauty.com makeup bag designed by the Brooklyn duo.

I think the eye makeup looks gorgeous on those models, but with my deep-set eyes it would probably look less 'Cleopatra' and more 'The Mummy'.

I love the bronze/copper eyeshadow it really brings out her blue eyes. When I wear copper on my blue/green eyes they always look bluer. Her hair color is gorgeous too.
