KIT­TEN PLAY Su­per­model, writer, and cre­ative con­sul­tant to make-up brand Eyeko, Alexa Chung talks to Li Ying Lim about ro­mance, sul­try eyes, and the per­fect fe­line flick.

Stila Con­vert­ible Blusher in Petu­nia, RM81

R ED -HOT PA SSION

I would ex­press it through my per­son­al­ity and ac­tions – not nec­es­sar­ily beauty. But eyes are the win­dows to the soul, and pas­sion pours out of mine.

MAK ING CAT EYES

For day­time, I fo­cus on the top lid; at night I use a black pen­cil like Eyeko Mak­ing Eyes on the in­side of the eye un­der­neath. Smudge it out so it’s more

of a sul­try, sexy, Brigitte Bar­dot look.

BEAUTY WITHIN

When I put on make-up I have this in mind: You need to be your­self. Eyeko Mak­ing Eyes in Pitch Black, RM59 I love the Ge­orge North­wood sa­lon in Lon­don, and Kéras­tase con­di­tion­ers

are great at mak­ing your hair look smooth and shiny.

FUN TRESSES

SE­CRET SCENTS

Fragrance is a deeply per­sonal thing for me. It’s a shame when I give away my favourite, I smell it on oth­ers and it de-per­son­alises the scent for me. I shop at

Le Labo and Creed. I’m a con­coc­tion of rose, san­dal­wood, and ve­tiver.

LIGHT & GR ACE

Any­thing to do with ballet and Pi­lates I love. With ballet, I get to work on

de­port­ment, el­e­gance, and grace in life, as well as the way I carry my­self.

EYE CON­TACT

I have an ad­ven­tur­ous spirit and I’ll try any­thing once. Beauty has al­ways

in­trigued me, so when Max and Nina [Leykind] of­fered me the role of Eyeko’s cre­ative con­sul­tant, I saw a great op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute

con­struc­tively in the mak­ing of prod­ucts.

MY NEXT BOOK

I Id don’t think it will be sim­i­lar to the first [ It, an ode to style icons]. Hope­fully,

if I write an­other one it would be more of words as op­posed to im­agery.

LIVE LIFE FULL

I’m pleased that I am pas­sion­ate. Be­ing de­spon­dent is my worst night­mare.
