This #eyeconic image was at the center of a delightful lecture on fashion mags, photography, & models of the 50s at FIT tonight. Thank you @1972projects + @fashionstudiesalliance + #fashionresearchnetwork + @fitspecialcollections for filling my Monday evening with so much midcentury glamour!

Remember when our NYC-based @nyucostumestudies exhibition was featured in @vanityfairspain? 💄💋 Our interview was published in February and somehow I didn't catch it until recently, but seeing it made my day! My past Spanish instructors would be happy to know that I can basically read this, but more importantly the exhibition is still available to see digitally! Flutter your eyelashes (or should I say agitar tus pestañas) over to eyeofthebeholdernyu.com 😉

In conjunction with "The Eye of the Beholder: Decade-Defining Lids, Lashes, & Brows" exhibition earlier this year, co-curator Lauren Richter-Suriñach (@laulirich) sat down with @Refinery29 video host and beauty editor Mi-Anne Chan (@mianne.chan) to discuss the parallels between the history of cosmetics, pop culture, and social history. Considering leading beauty trends and celebrities over the last century, Lauren and Mi-Anne question diversity and representation in the industry, particularly regarding the evolution of eye makeup products and advertisements. 
Here is a preview of their conversation – the full interview can be found on our Facebook page or www.eyeofthebeholdernyu.com/interviews. #nyueyeconic
Last week Sunday we hosted the first @nyucostumestudies program of the year wherein my lovely co-curators & I gave presentations expanding upon the ideas presented in our eye makeup exhibition. My talk was called "Making-up on Mobile: The Pretty Filters & Ugly Implications of Digital Adornment." It connecting the facially transformative abilities of Snapchat filters with cosmetics, and questioned the often problematic beauty ideals permeating these filters. 😽🤳🏼
Feeling so lucky to have a community in which I can explore and share my interests in fashion and media studies. Also I think I'm becoming quite the feminist scholar which is 👌🏼! Excited to continue doing such satisfying (and hopefully thought-provoking) work with my graduate thesis and beyond. Speaking of which... off I go to theorizing awayyy ✨💡✨

In my @nyucostumestudies exhibition's 2.5 week run, words do not describe how touched I've been by the genuine love and support from so many people in my life. It has been a major growing experience, and clearly from my inundation of posts, I'm sure you can tell how important it was to me. My parents came up from Florida, new and old friends stopped by for every event *shout out to my boyfriend who came to the show four times 😂* and my Sotheby's coworkers have gone above and beyond their "blessing" of letting me go to grad school part-time by attending my opening night and more. I've never felt so loved and supported both personally and professionally. Truly. Thank you so much to everyone who came (sorry I didn't get the chance to take a photo with several of you), thank you for your patience last fall - easily my most intense semester of my life - and I so hope one day I can invite you to an exhibition I curated again. 👁 #NYUEyeconic
And that's a wrap 👁👁 at #NYUEyeconic until the lights went off. Night Garbo ✨
Happy Fr-eye-day! The #NYUEyeconic tour of eye makeup history comes to an end today with our current decade, the 2010s. Today is your final chance to see the installation at @80WSE, but you can still view the virtual exhibition at www.eyeofthebeholdernyu.com.
✨👁️✨
"In the 2010s, artificiality and authenticity factor heavily into the decade’s dialogue. The ideal eye has shifted from Kim Kardashian’s spider lashes to full brows and barely-there eye makeup à la Cara Delevingne. Microblading – a semi-permanent tattoo process for the brows – has become increasingly popular. The social media boom welcomed a coterie of beauty influencers whose tutorials and product reviews helped popularize products like the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Today, the Galaxy Eye Palette from Rihanna’s 2017 cosmetics line, Fenty Beauty, suggests a vibrant alternative to these subtle hues. What will constitute beautiful eyes in the coming years? This will be left to the beholder to decide."

Today is the ‼️LAST DAY‼️to see @nyucostumestudies The Eye of the Beholder: Decade-Defining Lids, Lashes, & Brows. Saved the #1980s decade I curated for last - #BoyGeorge , #GraceJones , #Madonna , #PatrickNagel - talk about EYEcons!!! While the 80s was quite a fun decade to curate (this WHOLE book dedicated to Boy George makeup and fashion, #theeyeshaveit , two-toned metallic eyeliner 🙏💄🙌) it is interesting to see how issues of gender fluidity, women entering the work force, and more influence the ads. Get on over to 80WSE before 6️⃣, I'll be there the last half hour 🤓 #NYUEyeconic 👁

We've made it to the millennium in our #NYUEyeconic tour of eye makeup history. Today we'll be exploring the 1990s and 2000s Don't forget to visit the exhibition at @80wse Gallery by tomorrow!
✨👁️✨
"Increasingly visible in the 1990s, subcultures continued influencing the general public’s tastes. The decade’s immense cosmetic variety can be summarized by three major categories: natural yet sultry, edgy grunge, and Y2K-ready sparkle. Towards the middle of the decade, eye makeup changed drastically, as grunge and 'heroin chic' became the prevailing trends. The 'slept-in' look, popularized by models like Kate Moss, featured smudged black eyeliner, which encircled the eyes and extended over waterlines. During the early 2000s, makeup trends were characterized by a youthful, shimmery mermaid-esque feel. White frost, bright blues, layers of purple, pastel palettes, roll-on glitter eyeshadow, and a pop of colorful eyeliner all graced the faces of America. This glitter-fairy aesthetic contrasted with the neutral-toned smokey eye popular at the end of the decade. Volumizing mascara, as well as dark, heavy eyeliner completed the glamorous look."

Our #NYUEyeconic tour of eye makeup history is now entering the 80s! Don't forget to visit the exhibition at @80wse gallery by this Fr-eye-day!

"Although power-dressing women wore suits and other garments that were traditionally considered masculine, their visages soared to new levels of saturated femininity. Eyeshadow was generously applied, often up to the brow bone. Eyeliner was worn around the whole eye, including waterlines, and could extend into a wing or cat eye. Thanks to Brooke Shields, people across America lusted after thick, natural brows. Androgynous icons, such as Grace Jones and Boy George, reflected the decade’s gender fluidity, as well as its absolute and international embrace of cosmetics. While MAC’s 1984 founding in Toronto was intended to equip professionals with high-quality and high-pigment cosmetics, brands like Wet n Wild, which launched in 1979 with 99-cent cosmetics, made achieving the looks of the decade more attainable than ever."
