in collaboration with tanya taylor, uzo has consistently created my favorite beauty looks each season and fall 2014 was no different with its unique take on black eyeliner. to describe the look, “this season, eyes were brought to the forefront and given a modern, graphic edge by lining them in jet black with an unexpected break in the middle on the lower lash line,” which used three very different products: eye paint, pencil eyeliner, and larger than life long-wear eyeliner.

oh damn, oh damn, oh damn — tanya taylor's fall 2013 presentation (everything about it, really) was so good. it was rockabilly fashion at its best from the bouffant-ish hair to the smudgy graphic eye and relaxed rocker chicness of the clothes. before working backstage at taylor's show last season, i hadn't known much about the designer, but i am now making it my civic duty to know everything. a few interesting facts:

  • she’s a baby! her eponymous line was created in 2011
  • formerly, she designed for elizabeth & james
  • rashida jones is a fan, which means that i’m def a fan

working at nars has allowed me the opportunity to form relationships with many of our artists and uzo has become one of my favorites; she creates gorgeous looks (both editorial and runway), is super funny, and does her thing exclusively in 5-inch heels. admirable. i love watching her in her element — it isn’t creepy, i swear.
