The Twiggy Ford Eye.

Recently, I've been asked what the inspiration behind my eye make-up is. Sometimes I go very au natural as I'm heading to pilates or partaking in our famous Skinny Cow & Movie Night-Ins. Other times I could be confused for Cleopatra straight out of the Nile, with eyeliner so intense I'd show up Elizabeth Taylor during a night out on the town.

A reader sent in a question that really made me think though, "Coming from a fashion point of view, what inspires your make-up? Do you see make-up as a portrayal of fashion too?"

I absolutely consider make-up as a portrayal of fashion. Look at all the great ad campaigns out there, most use make-up as a statement piece competing just as hard with the striking crocodile clutch that's being promoted.

These two styles of make-up, shown below, I somehow combine to make my own. Twiggy's white bottom liner is a huge eye opener to Tom Ford's thick black liquid liner. I love the look of boldness yet simplicity.
