Indie-girl favorite Vena Cava  showed off its Spring 2009 collection , which was inspired by Egyptology. While the fashion fiends were plotzing over the design duo's new shoes , I was enjoying Oscar Blandi 's "modern mermaid" hair and this take on the smoky eye.
Tina Turnbow led a team of makeup artists working with Stila  on this look. Like the clothes, it was inspired by Egypt — but as you can see, it's far from a Cleopatra eye. Instead, it's a light, smoky eye that uses some new eye shadow shades (wait until you see the silver one!) and Kajal eyeliners in Smoky Quartz and Tigers Eye. It's a little smudgy, a little goth, and very sexy indeed. And if you can't get enough Vena Cava, check out the Beauty.com makeup bag  designed by the Brooklyn duo.
