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.
