Designer Lulin Ding is taking makeup to a whole new level with a digital eyeshadow concept that uses a system of wires and an LED bulb to bathe the wearer’s eye in light.
â€œI was interested in the way women wear eyeshadow and how most of the time you can only see the details when their eyes are closed,â€ writes Ding on her website. â€œI sought to translate the attributes of eyeshadow into a digital medium. I made the initial decision to use the light to paint the eyelids when you blink and close your eye.â€
I don’t know if this will ever catch on in its current form since it seems a little uncomfortable to wear (and it might give you a blinding headache), but I will say this—when you wink at someone it will be a lot more powerful. Maybe her next project could involve getting our teeth to flash and make that “ting!” sound when we smile.
