Feb 26, 2001, 00:00 ET from M.A.C Cosmetics

    NEW YORK, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- "Dark eyes rule.  They look good on
 everyone and let you reveal your mysterious side.  Eyes now are harder edged
 and less smudgy.  Graphic, exaggerated, cat and winged shapes prevail, topped
 off with heavy-duty mascara and curled."
     - Gordon Espinet, Chief Makeup Artist at M.A.C Cosmetics.
     Eyes were the focus for Fall 2001 in New York.  Dark and smoky was the
 look at Richard Tyler, Angel Sanchez and Rebecca Taylor.  Catherine Malandrino
 and Douglas Hannant exaggerated eye shapes.  Badgley Mischka and Oscar de la
 Renta laid the liquid liner on thick in black.  It's all about the eyes.
     Other trends: Skin is matte.  Lips are natural -- think taupy and fleshy.
