Khaki Cat-Eyes: Prada’s Neutral Lid Look Goes With Everything

A photo posted by sandyhullett (@sandyhullett) on

Whether Miuccia Prada’s woman was sent down the runway this weekend wearing a sweater emblazoned with a rocket ship or a coat covered in paillettes that was simply out of this world, a cat-eye in a neutral-but-undoubtedly-cool shade of khaki served as its complement. We’ve seen “anti-eyeshadow” colors backstage before at the Italian house’s show—a term Pat McGrath used to describe the lids she graffitied with stone-like shades of lavender, green, yellow, blue, and orange for Spring ’14—but the dramatic winged shape lent the finished package an element of polish and sophistication. A classic beauty concept reimagined in an unexpected shade feels intrinsically Prada, but better yet, it works with everything currently hanging in your closet. Here, four ways to get the look:
