Vena Cava Walks Like an Egyptian

Sep 15 2008 - 9:00am

Indie-girl favorite Vena Cava [1] showed off its Spring 2009 collection [2], which was inspired by Egyptology. While the fashion fiends were plotzing over the design duo's new shoes [3], I was enjoying Oscar Blandi [4]'s "modern mermaid" hair and this take on the smoky eye.

Tina Turnbow led a team of makeup artists working with Stila [5] 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 [6] designed by the Brooklyn duo.
