When I say fashion is not only limited to clothing, I mean your whole “look” is your fashion, including the way you do your makeup. According to Harpers Bazaar, This “cobalt blue” eyeliner and sangria” smokey eye shadow are 2014 Fall/Winter color trend approved. Dior provides great tutorials on how to achieve the smoky eye, while Ulta carries a wide variety of liquid liner to master the perfect cat eye, both makeup trends for Fall/winter 2014.
