Smokey Eyes
• Apply a light base of foundation on to your eyelids setting with powder.
• Fill in your eyebrows with an eyebrow powder or a pencil. Strong eyebrows are very popular at the moment
• Apply a powder eye shadow as thick eyeliner close to the lash line on the upper lid, dark brown or grey are good colours to use, or for a really dramatic look use black. Blend the eye shadow upwards making sure that there are no hard lines, don’t go higher than the socket line, layer the colour to gradually build the colour to the required depth, with each layer of eye shadow blend so there are no hard lines
• Apply thin line of liquid or gel liner close to the lashes to intensify the colour. Then add some lashes, I prefer the individual cluster lashes but they are a bit tricky to put on by yourself, so check out the eylure strip lashes they have loads of different styles and are easy to apply
• For underneath the eye, using a fine brush or cotton bud apply the same eye shadow colour that you used on the top of the lid along the bottom of your eye smudging the colour so it looks soft. Finally apply some kohl pencil or gel eyeliner inside your bottom eyelid.
• Finish by adding a lighter shimmery colour underneath the brow bone
• Finally apply a volumising mascara making sure that the outer lashes have more mascara on them for a sweeping effect
• For a Christmassy effect why not add a sprinkling of glitter on top to give you some added sparkle.
• Keep lips nude, the rule is dark eyes pale lips, pale eyes dark lips.
