Meet The Dusty, Moroccan-Inspired Beauties At Pamela Love

If wanderlust is contagious, then the rusty, sunset-in-the-desert eye makeup from Pamela Love's spring '12 presentation will be the first thing to send you into a fever. The smudgy look—courtesy of Gina Crozier for MAC—is a blend of brown Embark eyeshadow and rust-hued Antiqued, with a red-brown called Foile brushed along the lower lash-line.
