Feel free to bat those eyelids
CLINIQUE calls it the Bigger, Brighter Eyes In An Instant Fall 2010 Colour Collection. “Instant” may be too ambitious – it’s not like you just add hot water and voila!
Your eyes are all made up – but when applied correctly, the collection should brighten and intensify the eyes, no matter the shape or size.
At least, that’s what celebrity make-up artist Francesca Tolot promises.
She was brought in by the cosmetics company to give tips on using the colours to create certain looks. What are the colour palettes for this Fall?
Clinique’s Bigger, Brighter Eyes In An Instant Fall 2010 Colour is to ensure a custom-fit match for all women.
It was developed to brighten and intensify eyes with three different colour palettes:
> The Like Mink Collection pairs sparkling beiges with deep golden browns for a dramatic take on neutrals.
> The Strawberry Fudge Collection brightens things up with golden pinks and blushing browns.
> The Beach Plum Collection pairs shimmering golds with deep, warm purples for a bright new look. What’s the best way to get the most out of this collection?
Each palette can be worn as a natural, soft look or can be intensified for a more dramatic look. What are the common mistakes women make in their make-up?
Using too much make-up, not blending it or choosing the wrong colours. Do you think Asian women are too obsessed with trying to look like Caucasians: for example, they desire to have double eyelids and higher noses. What is your advice to them?
Try to enhance their beauty and not try to be like somebody else. In the same vein, can you share your make-up tips for Asian women?
Apply artificial eyelashes or use an eyelash curler because it helps to open the eyes without using too much make-up. What should older women bear in mind when they are doing up their face?
Don’t use too much foundation or powder, and stay away from metallic colours.
