Florence Pugh just made ‘Robot Eyeliner’ a thing

When is eyeliner not basic? When Florence Pugh sets foot on the red carpet. In the past, the star has experimented with '60s mod makeup, the Audrey Hepburn aesthetic and even going mascara free, but her most recent daring look stretched the cat eye to the limit.

At last night's star-studded premiere of Dune: Part Two in New York, Florence's long-time makeup artist Alex Babsky created a futuristic twist on negative space eyeliner using thick strokes of what looked like cut-out chrome face stickers (most likely from FaceLace) to create an extra large wing that touched the outer corner of her eyebrow.

Another graphic silver line floated beneath Florence's lower lashes, while it appears as though her upper lash line was defined by a super-thin stroke of black eyeliner and copious amounts of black mascara.

It's almost as though Alex translated the full silver metallic suit of armour by Thierry Mugler that Zendaya wore to the film's London premiere into a makeup look. Dubbed ‘FutureFlo’ in his Instagram post, the style of eyeliner is simultaneously serving up robot chic and '60s vibes.

Florence paired the look with a soft peach flush on the cheeks and lips, and heavily defined brows. Her platinum blonde hair was parted to the side, and combed back, while an intricate looped ponytail, styled at the nape of her neck, tumbled down her backless grey plissé halter-styled gown by Maison Valentino.

The Dune: Part Two promotional tour has served up so many iconic beauty looks, but you can always rely on Florence Pugh to be ahead of the curve style-wise. The numerous metallic makeup looks we saw on the AW24 catwalks – from swathes of silver eyeshadow at Harris Reed to the molten ‘tears’ at Chet Lo – is testament to that.

Either way, the star has just convinced us that graphic silver eye makeup is the way to go.
