Intent on making 2017 your Best Year Ever? We can help with that, thanks to our 2017 Coach of the Month series. For May, Heidi Klum and her beauty team break down how to get some of her most memorable hair and makeup looks—with minimal effort, to boot.
Okay, fine, Klum’s fabulously over-the-top Halloween look from 2015—Jessica Rabbit—might not be a look you want to copy to a T in your everyday life. But with a few adjustments, when you take it down a couple notches, it becomes a sultry nighttime look. After all, Heidi says, “Jessica Rabbit’s the epitome of an iconic sexy woman!”

Meanwhile, Linda says: “Go for it! But only at night! Jessica is the epitome of everything female. Her ‘more is more’ iconic look can be translated to a night out with a few tweaks. Purples are the new neutral. Check out “Tisse Cambon” from Chanel or “Bloodroses” from Kevyn Aucoin. We use the classic liquid eye liner for a more feline finish, though this seemingly simple line can cause many headaches. I find the best way to apply is in two stages, with two products, and then add individual false lashes as the icing on the cake.
First I ask my client to look directly at me (you would look directly into the mirror). With a pencil, I place a very faint marker dot on the outside of the eyes where I’d like to land the end of the line, just before the flick.
Then with eyes closed its easier to see how thick and how angled the line can be. Gently pull the skin at the temple away from the eye to flatten the skins surface and line the eye with a fine line. Next step, loads of mascara.
Now apply the liquid: Dior or YSL have great easy to use liquid liners, or if you prefer a gel, Nars, using the finest flat brush you have, you may at this point like to thicken your line, prepping for the flick at the end.
