• THE modern muse:

    Rooney Mara

    Proving that summer black can be as feminine as pastel hues, Mara has become the pinup girl for dark glamour. Knowing the impact black wields, the actress cleverly keeps the rest of her look understated, refraining from excessive accessorizing or makeup. That aura of mystique helps, too.

    The beauty look:

    a smoky eye

    The season’s best twist on this classic look came at Dsquared2, where The Edit’s Charlotte Tilbury paid homage to ’90s-era Linda Evangelista. Smudge Chantecaille’s Gel Liner in Espresso up to the lashes, then use Le Métier de Beauté’s Liquid Eyeliner along the lashline, finishing with Chantecaille’s Faux Cils Black Mascara to define.
