The eyes have it
Applying your eye make-up correctly can give an instant lift. “A heavy liner can look incredible on the right eye shape, where there is enough lid space to work with,” says MAC event artist, Lochie Stonehouse. “In other cases, a softer, lighter and more diffused liner may look more flattering.” Avoid lining your waterline, which can make eyes look smaller, and focus the liner in the lash-line (the root of the lashes). “Gently diffuse the liner with a soft brush to create the illusion of thick youthful lashes,” says Stonehouse. “If you have blue or green eyes, try using a brown liner with a warm undertone. For hazel eyes, try brown with a cool undertone, or a soft grey.” TRY: 1. MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy, $36. 2. Bobbi Brown Long-wear Eye Pencil in Black Plum, $58. 3.
