Clueless about how to perfect your eye make-up? Here’s a handy guide to pretty peepers.
- Apply dry with a soft concealer or eyeshadow brush for a lighter look during the day or with a slightly wet brush for more intense colour.
- Light brown and pinks go especially well with hazel eyes.
- Blend with your finger for best results.
- Never use cream eyeshadow over powder – it will become cakey. You can use powder over cream however.
- To layer cream eyeshadow for a more dramatic look allow it to dry between applications.
- Pinks also go well with blue eyes.
- Use after applying mascara for best results as it curls the lashes to open up the eyes even more.
- Heat under running water and then clamp your lashes and pump the curler gently a few times.
- Remove as much excess eyeliner from the tip before application to create a neat line.
- Choose an eyeliner with a narrow, flexible brush or tip.
- Liquid eyeliner creates lines quickly and neatly once you get the hang of it.
- Brush it through your lashes after applying mascara to separate them.
- A softer variation of eyeliner, usually in pencil form, it smudges easier than other eyeliners so is ideal to create smoky eyes.
- Sharpen your pencil before each use to keep it hygienic. Always cover after use.
- Apply the adhesive, leave for 10 seconds until it becomes sticky and gently place the lashes on your lid using tweezers. Press down on the outer corners to fix them.
- False lashes come in different sizes to create drama for a night out or a little more volume for a day look.
- Tap excess powder off the brush to avoid streaking.
- An eyeshadow brush should be soft for easy blending.
EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER
- Make-up removers that contain a balance of oil and water are gentler on the eyes.
