BEAUTIFUL EYES STEPS AND TIPS
1. Use a medium-size round brush to apply charcoal grey powder in an arch shape just above the crease of the lid. Then blend down to the lash line.
2. Trace the upper lash line with a soft black pencil, then gently smudge with your fingertip.
3. With a smaller, firm-bristle brush, press a gunmetal shade into the lower lash line.
4. Apply a pale silver powder to the inner corners of the eyes to lighten the overall effect.
5. Pile on mascara.
HOW TO ERASE SHADOW MISTAKES
Erase shadow mistakes without ruining your makeup is easy. Dip a cotton swab in concealer, then skim it over the skin. The concealer will pick up shadow without smudging.
HOW TO GIVE A PURPLE TOUCH
Purple is a modern take on the smoky eye. Apply pale violet shadow on the lids, then blend a dark plum shadow into the creases. Rim lower lashes with black liner and top with a layer of lilac shadow applied with a wet brush.
HOW TO LOOK NATURAL
To get a smooth smoky eye, moisturize the area first, so when you line the lid with a pencil it will smudge naturally.
FOR A QUICK SMOKY EYE LOOK
For a smoky eye in a flash, use just eyeliner. Rim lids with a black pencil or small brush, making the line quite heavy; then wipe it off.
CHOOSING YOUR COLOUR
Gold on inner corners brightens all eyes, while purple’s broad appeal is that it’s not too cool or too warm.
