Gemma Ward Under Eyeliner
I can't believe I almost kinda forgot about this face - no doubt that Gemma Ward is a beauty, but her reversed eyeliner look here is beyond mesmerizing. The pale gold on top and heavy black lacquer on the bottom translates into this classic, but super undone, "I'm not-trying-too-hard" with a wisp of rocker (or what I hate, "rock-chic") look that completely embodies the aesthetic I find to be ever aspirational. This is makeup perfection in my eyes. And here's me trying to recreate it. I wasn't brave enough to bring out the black sheen, so I used a shimmery gray + matte black combo instead. Not quite Gemma, but good enough.
