WATCH how to create the dramatic John Galliano eye!

07 January 2011

Last week, Grazia's beauty team trotted to Notting Hill in order to catch up with backstage hero and creative director of MyFace cosmetics, Kabuki to chat makeup secrets as well as catwalk looks, and exactly how to work them for 2011...

After spotting him backstage at Zac Posen's S/S '11 show, we wanted to know how he came up with the gwageous looks like the one above. 'Really when I get a grasp on [the beauty look] is when I see the collection - I interpret what the designer's trying to say and put it into the makeup somehow,' Kabuki revealed. 'The shows for S/S '11 have been going in a more glamorous direction and that's fun for me because I can pick an element from the clothing and bring it into the makeup.'

So for us mere mortals who want to achieve that high-glamour catwalky look without the pricey clothes, the man himself kindly gave us a lesson in how to build up the perfect eye with a John Galliano-esque result. Take it away, Kabuki!

Next up, it's time for the natural, nude look to complement the strong eyes. Listen and learn, ladies...

And finally, with the weekend coming up, why not exaggerate the look with these handy tips?

Et voila! That's your 2011 beauty look sorted, folks. We might leave the bonkers hat and veil at home tonight, though...
