“She’s sweet, beautiful—and a bit deranged,” said the makeup artist Lucia Pieroni, laughing, of the look backstage at Rochas tonight as she gestured toward model (and show closer) Kirsten Owen, who was having her lids painted with a diffused wash of pale blue eye shadow. To channel the “slightly dark” undertones of designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s spring collection for the fashion house, Pieroni was dipping into a soft, pretty shade from the company’s forthcoming Eye Color Quad #310 (out next February) and sweeping it on with a brush. “That’s the sweet part,” she explained. The twist, she continued, came via endless layers of Clé de Peau mascara—and more notably, the two black dots she was drawing on at the center of the lashes for a doll-like appearance, using an eye-shadow brush dipped in pigment.

While Pieroni’s look was meant for the runway, it’s not the first time we’ve seen the “double dot” phenomenon popping up of late—and those looking for a way to give it legs for the real world need only look on Instagram for a guide. Singer Zoë Kravitz regularly draws on two barely perceptible pinpoints under her eyes using what looks like a black kohl pencil for a more wearable, everyday bohemian effect. And, yes, we’re here to tell you, it looks really, really good.
