Words by NANA VALDUEZA

Wearing eyeliners has become a common part of makeup. Different periods brought up a variety of trends with eyeliner. and throughout the years, wearing one just becomes a statement.

These fall season eyeliners are back at it again on the runway and with a different vibe, making us go beyond the mask and putting forward our best eye looks. In this collaboration, we expounded Refined Statement's White Out look with its polar opposite, the Modern Grunge 'do with the help of hair and makeup artist professional Raymund Dy Adora.

white out

Simplifying your bold-eye statements with white eyeliner. Go solo by defying the common black liner with a white version.

According to Mond, his version of the White Out eyeliner "gives a fresh and modern take off from the usual black lid foxy eye makeup." The white color isn't too heavy around the eyes and rather elongates it for a more wide-eyed look. This look also matches any eye shape.

Tips from the professional:

  • Doing it for the first time, start by stenciling your preferred shape with a usual light colored eye pencil and trace it with the white eyeliner.
  • For shaky hands, rest your pinky finger against the side of your face to avoid messing up your line.

modern grunge

With Generation Z appreciating all the 90s looks this season, the grunge-look is also making a modern comeback with a more glamorous take on the goth-inspired look.

According to Mond, creating this opposite look was a "powerful take to the eyeliner". Not just any winged eyeliner, monochromatic tones (the use of red) were used to add depth to the eyes and the lips, making the eyes look smaller, yet dynamic and compelling.

Tips from the professional:

  • Heavy eye shadow can be a mess if you are dealing with a powder-based eyeshadow - make sure to apply a good eye primer.
  • Make sure to tap off the excess product and gradually apply it in layers until you are satisfied with the look.

Mond has been creative in the industry, starting as a producer for an AD agency 10 years ago, when he pursued his affinity for hair and makeup. Having a strong background in architecture and advertising, he started his craft with only intuition and a in hand. Thus, his journey to hone it, earning various certifications abroad and finishing his CPD on Hair and Makeup from New York.

"My craft is multi-dimensional, coming from my work experience through the years of deep understanding of what works on different face shapes, textures, and understanding the concept behind color theory. I always had an eye in aesthetics and very much exploration in my visions."

RUSTANS.COM (RCC): How did you envisioned interpreting these two looks for rustans.com?

RAYMOND DY ADORA (RDA): Both looks are a combination of fresh skin, subtle blush on the cheeks, and a statement eye makeup to give it a modern twist. The white out graphic eye liner gives a fresh and modern take off from the usual black lid foxy eye makeup. The modern grunge is a combination of a monochromatic gradient look on both eyes and lips, which gives a more edgy vibe. Applying fresh glow on skin and breaking it with a statement eye makeup really makes it a standout. I’ve created the look similar to the peg in consideration with the model’s facial structure. Reinterpreting this also by not overdoing the makeup to maintain the youthful glow and classic vibe..

RCC: What's your view on the evolving eye-makeup trend this season?

RDA: Different looks and eye make-up are evolving fast all the time but it is always coming back on trend with the twist. From the 50s pinup looks, 80’s colorful vibe, 90s shimmery makeup, early 2000s matte trends to now's revival of the gloss. Makeup has always been coming back on style on various campaigns.

This season, the use of colored eye makeup and liners are back especially that everyone is still wearing a face mask. A good eye makeup can create an impression and can make a good conversational statement. This holiday season, the use of different texture crystals, pearls, or metallic cut-outs on top of an eye shadow could be the next trend. Just don’t overdo it. At the end of the day, wear what makes you feel good and confident.

RCC: What are the changes that we would expect in eye makeup soon, especially for eyeliners?

RDA: Play of colors and textures are possible trends as well as the white and colorful eyeliners. Neon colors, glow in the dark, metallic, or the use of crystals and cut-out metals will be the next flair on eye makeup.

RCC: What is your constant mantra as a makeup artist?

RDA: I always envision my artistry with a concept to execute an idea. Creating different looks must always have a solid reason on why we are creating it. You can be bold, loud, or minimal by getting inspirations literally everywhere around you. From the lines of a skyscraper, shapes of the clouds, colors of nature, textures of animal prints, or even a certain feel of an emotion. Everything is possible. You can never go wrong if you stay true and stick to your own vision.
