Tibi’s Eye Look For Fall Is All We Want To Wear This Spring

Finally some color!

We’re finally seeing some color in terms of runway makeup this season, and we're pretty excited. Following seasons of clean faces and subdued hues, we’re welcoming back vibrant shades with open arms. Our favorite look so far (and the most wearable for every day)? Tibi’s two-toned geometric eye.

The look was created by makeup artist Sarah Lucero, global executive director of creative artistry for Stila. Using the brand’s Liquid Eye Shadow (in a new shade family, the Vivid + Vibrant, launching in fall) as eyeliner, she created a triangular wing that’s punchy and cool yet somehow still subtle. The liquid shadow works like paint and dries flat, meaning it stays in place and is just pigmented enough to not be overpowering.

Lucero paired two colors together, such as yellow and red or blue and purple, depending on the model and the colorful Tibi pieces she was dressed in. Lucero swiped the first color across the lid, starting in the center and bringing it outward, with the second color carefully smeared across the center of the lower lash line. The skin was kept clean with slightly flushed cheeks, with an eye cream—Marula's 3-in-1 Rejuvenating Eye Treatment—applied to the apples for a naturally dewy sheen.

Pairing the look with effortless, subtle waves by Aveda and colorful half moon nails by JinSoon, it was overall a very fresh look—and while it may have been created for a collection of fall clothing, we think it’s just the inspiration we were looking for this spring.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
