I have hooded eyes ... My eyelids are barely visible. My hooded eyes, combined with my slightly-oily skin, equaled a constant problem with creasing eyeshadow and eyeliner that transferred to the area above the crease of my eyes. Primers didn't help.
So how do I brighten my eyes without looking like a clown by midday?
I use the glossiest-black liquid eyeliner (waterproof, of course) that I could find. The glossy black color delivers the dramatic impact while the thin line (that I draw right at the lash line), combined with the waterproof formula, stays put.
I thicken the line slightly at the outer corner and leave the bottom lash line bare. This technique makes my eyes pop. It also helps me avoid the irritation and constant tearing that always starts as soon as I put anything on my lower lash line (I blame my allergies.).

I immediately liked and saved a this top by Brunello Cucinelli a few weeks ago. Although I was in the middle of some project at that time, I definitely planned to later revisit this brand.
I was drawn to the deceptively understated style of the piece ... I sensed this brand might specialize in the unique detailing that I love. My instincts were right on target. Here are some additional luxe, glam cush styles by this label...

Yes, it's a well-established fact that I'm a huge fan of Rick Owens. His designs speak to my attraction to the laid back glam of haute-edge style. I love, and often wear, my pieces from the Rick Owens and Rick Owens DRKSHDW Lines.
However, it's the Lilies Line that I crave lately. This fabulous line is a creative exploration in sophisticated draping. ... It's the embodiment of relaxed, lush, luxe with a little edge.
Here are some of my fave looks...
