Kate Schlichter

Kate is one of those women who inspires both admiration and jealousy for her ability to always look perfectly done up, no matter the weather or occasion. Never is a hair out of place or a smear of lipstick present–a talent which presumably comes in quite handy at her job as a stylist for Bumble and Bumble. Her look always manages to merge the classic and the dramatic without ever looking overdone.

 
When did you start wearing eyeliner?  
I started wearing eyeliner around age 15 when I was super into trying to be Mod/Brit pop.

 
Did you go through phases from when you started till today?  
Throughout the years I’ve gone through many different phases with my eyeliner–from super classic to goth to pin up–now I change it daily depending on my mood.

 
Who are your eyeliner icons?  
Traci Lords in Cry Baby, Brigitte Bardot, Dita Von Teese, Robert Smith, Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra.

What is your favorite brand and what do you wear with it to complete your look?  
My favorite eyeliner is Lancôme. It’s the easiest for me to apply and it lasts. I finish with Lancôme primer and mascara… sometimes false lashes.

 
Any tips for putting it on… or taking it off?  
To make my cat eye I almost always wear, I start at the corner of my eye to create the shape/length I’m in the mood for that day. Then I work from the center of my eye of my eye to the tip of the line to create the triangle, then I fill it in! I usually wake up with eyeliner smudged all over my face…I take it off with face wash in my morning shower.

 

THROUGHOUT the years I’ve gone through many different phases with my eyeliner–from SUPER CLASSIC to GOTH to PIN UP.

 
Do you have different day and night looks? (If so, what are they?)  
I usually dress the same during the day as I do at night…maybe I’d add lashes…or put liner in the inner lower lid.

 
Why do you wear eyeliner?  
I feel naked with out it! And it balances out my face–eyeliner helps complete my look. I’m a hair stylist, so I feel like I need to be put together at work everyday.
