How to Do Bold Black and White Makeup
Extreme Black and White Makeup
Take your inspiration from Truman Capote whose legendary Black and White Ball in 1966 made duo-tone extremes totally glam. For a standout high fashion Mime makeup look, create high contrast by packing an intense matte white shadow on your lids, lining your lashes with ultra noir liner and finishing with copious (not clumpy) amounts of black mascara. Conversely, you can opt for black eyelids and stark white lips for a look that channels the mod period. Add some graphic details to make this Mime makeup look even more interesting: try black polka dots or x's and o's (i.e. hugs and kisses) on top of white lids when you're feeling playful (create either with an ultra-thin eyeliner brush dipped in wet black shadow). --Stephanie Simons
