Backstage at London Fashion Week A/W16, we caught up with internationally acclaimed makeup artist Neil Young who created the eye brightening look at Natasha Zinko using Eyeko. Neil’s artistry occupies a space in the upper echelons of makeup talent - working backstage with brands like Altuzarra, Balmain, Tom Ford, and an A-list clientele including Tilda Swinton, Kate Hudson and Rita Ora amongst others.

2. Using Eyeko Black Magic...
"She makes some of our favorite mascara on the planet (even the packaging is fab!), has fashion-icon Alexa Chung star in her ad campaigns, and jet-sets around the globe like a true professional, so naturally we needed to know every little detail about the travel-habits of the gorgeous Nina Leykind, founder of cosmetics brand Eyeko (and all-around ‘cool girl’). Our verdict: better than we could have imagined.
City you call home?
How often do you travel?

How many countries have you visited?
By asking me this question...
To add fullness and drama:
Black Magic Mascara combined with Rock Out & Lash Out Mascara make for killer lashes.
Starting with Black Magic brush through from roots to tip allowing the helix brush to make full lash contact adding instant definition by lifting and separating lashes with just one coat. Add the rest of the colour on the wand to bottom lashes before going back into the tube to add another coat. Follow this with a third and final coat going vertical with our unique guitar-shaped wand in Rock Out & Lash Out to add a sooty flutter to upper lashes focusing on the outer lashes building in curl and allowing the unique thickening...
Acclaimed make-up artist Liz Pugh picked Eyeko as her beauty edit for Wonderland magazine this month.
The theme was culture clash which photographer Felicity Ingram translated into a series of tight head shots show casing a variety of subversive yet beautiful make-up looks.With Mariah Carey as the cover star for Wonderland our beauty pages were appropriately titled #Beautiful. It’s always exciting working with Liz and we got to play around with a lot of new as-yet-to-launch Eyeko products including our automatic gel eyeliners Making Eyes and our Lash Wardrobe. And of course at the end of the shoot we took it all off with Eyeko Mascara...

What do you think is going to be the biggest makeup look for this season?
Creative liner looks. Whether it's your standard black or an eye-catching vibrant color, it was all over the runways. The mod liner look is especially hot right now; paired with a pastel lip it's perfect for the season!
What's your biggest extravagance?
Massages. I get them often! I work 7 days a week so it's my one window...
Billed as a presentation rather then catwalk show, the debut of new label GRACE proved to be the hottest ticket in town. Styled by none other then Katie Grand the excitement built as we discovered that the girls walking the show included Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Suki Waterhouse and Sam Rollinson.
With Lisa Eldridge making eyes for Eyeko the atmosphere back stage was surprisingly relaxed despite the girls rushing in from previous show commitments that ran late. For the pared down collection of LBD's 'Little Grace Dresses'
we were thrilled to introduce our NEW LASH WARDROBE, the ultimate accessory to your eye wardrobe. Katie channeled...

It's no secret that Eyeko loves a 60's eye look! We loved Cosmopolitan UK's recent article on 'Celebrities nailing 60s hair and makeup' and were happy to see our girl Alexa Chung. Also in the mix were Eyeko fans Mad Men actress Jessica Pare and Londoner Gizzi Erskine who is as well known for her 60's persona as her TV cooking!
"We love Alexa Chung's signature 60's eye make up - the feline flicks go with every outfit. It's no wonder eye makeup brand Eyeko signed her up as their Creative Director."
It's no secret Alexa is a huge fan of liquid eyeliner so naturally since joining Eyeko she's improved on her favourite and created her own!
