Long the product adored by artists, models, and movie stars, Make Up For Ever's Aqua Eyes waterproof eyeliner delivers a striking iridescence that makes it worth the $16 splurge. With finely ground mother-of-pearl as its base, the pigment is soft enough to smudge easily — even to use as an eye shadow — and allows for its versatility and easy color combinations. It creates subtly for day and bold drama at night. And once it dries, it stays put. Created in 1984 in the Parisian workshop/boutique of makeup artist Dany Sanz, Make Up For Ever offers a fun selection of colors: fushia pink, majorelle blue, shimmering plum, turquoise, and basics from bronze to silver to black. This eyeliner possesses the ability to replace the morning's dull and repetitive process with a spark of creativity and excitement with each application.

Rowling’s Diaganon Alley in the Harry Potter books. By night it shifts to the glam and swill that gave birth to Amy Winehouse (known as the legend of Camden).
On this night we cross the busy street to club Koko. A long line winds around the side of theater-turn-dance-club. My friends complain, but I see this as the perfect opportunity to soak in some of
After 20 minutes of waiting and 12 pounds for the cover charge, we move into the club, which features soaring balconies and black lights. Between the bustling bodies, I spy Victoria Beckham inspired coifs, nerdy black Buddy Holly glasses, and raccoon styled eye shadow.
While dancing to the techno beats, I admire the ease these London kids feel in their garish get-ups. What happens here travels fast: Cool hunters watch and copy these looks, until kooky glasses and chartreuse tights crowd the shelves at Topshop. I know the looks I see tonight will soon appear in magazines such as Vice and Nylon. But these boys and girls aren’t thinking about that. They live, dance and dress for the moment. So I follow suit. I grab a sudsy Strongbow, begin to move my body to the beat, and watch as an Edwardian styled prince snogs his Gothic Lolita princess.
