All Eyes On Me!

We can’t help getting excited about winter make-up. The luscious fabrics and styles of winter fashion are the perfect excuse for ramping up the sophistication factor and indulging our lust for rich colour and plush textures.

Lash Out

Mascara is a seriously big deal now. At some of the autumn/winter shows, big doe eyes – inspired by sixties icon Twiggy – were created by layering lengthening and volumising mascara on both top and bottom lashes, creating a totally pretty look.
Revlon’s new Mascara Collection eliminates the guesswork for you. They’ve simplified the names, so you know exactly which lash look you’re going to get from the five unique mascara and brush combinations: All-in-One Volume, Length, Definition and Volume & Length.

Out Of Line

Mascara’s perfect partner is eyelinerand, this year, it can get pretty abstract – precisely drawn geometric shapes, scribbled on ‘wonky’ liner and Thierry Mugler’s double wing line are just some of the inspiring ideas. But for those who prefer things classic, make a definite statement by lining the waterline on both top and bottom lids with khol.

Soft Smoke vs Ultra-Graphic

Smoky eyes are inevitable in winter, but this year’s smoke is more subtle, sophisticated and less defined. Swap out the darks for soft shades of pewter, bronze. The more extreme look is the ultra-graphic eye, with colour blocking and rainbow lids. It’s all up to you and your imagination.
We suggest are Palladio Silk FX Eye Palette Eyes a La Mode, L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow in Nudes, Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Enhancing Eye Shadows, Essence Nude Eye Shadows and Rimmel Eyeshadow Palette in Smokey Brun 002.

Brows, Skin and Lips

As any Oscars contender will tell you, supporting roles are essential for making the stars look good.
With a strong eye, you need strong brows for balance. Make sure they are well brushed and defined.
While the eyes may be hogging the limelight, an understated performance by skin and lips is no less important for a winning look.
