Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Kristen Stewart have all been wearing rimmed eyeliner and it’s no wonder that the exotic look has been making waves on the runway. This spring, Dolce & Gabbana released its Khol collection, L’Oréal debuted its Kajal-inspired voluminous smoldering eyeliner and Physicians Formula launched its shimmering Khol Kajal Eyeliner Trios. Chanel will also be featuring two popular black eyeliners inclusive of its highly anticipated Bombay Express collection.
Top Left features Chanel’s pre-fall show wherby global creative director Peter Philips created almond shaped eyes with the use of Khol eyeliner and gel eye shadow.
For the “Rag & Bone’s" Indian show for fall 2012, Revlon’s global artistic director “Gucci Westman” took to a multi-dimensional black-rimmed eye by using different eyeliner textures such as liquid gel and Khol.
For Emilo Pucci’s spring catwalk, Lisa Butler used M.A.C Smolder Eye Khol along the upper lashline, waterline and lower lashline for that “Gypsy” effect.
"I've been using kohl on my eyes forever—it's a traditional Indian practice," says Indian runway model Lakshmi Menon. "I think I must have been a baby when my mom first started putting it on me. It's supposed to prevent you from getting the `evil eye' and falling sick. It also cools your eyes when you're in a hot climate." These days, however, Menon wears kohl eyeliner for cosmetic purposes. "If I want to go out and look more glamorous, I put a little kohl on my eyes—it's the easiest thing to do. You just put on the liner and rub it in for a smudged effect. It looks very sexy," she says, adding, "I'm a big fan of Aveda eyeliner and this Pakistani kohl pencil by Hashmi. They're both nice and dark."
