Nat­u­ral eye­shadow

Don’t ex­pect too much from DIY makeup. The cov­er­age will not be the same as store-bought cos­met­ics. At the same time, the ef­fects are still pretty – es­pe­cially if you like a nat­u­ral fin­ish. Plus, it’s quick to make.

THE HOW-TO

Step 1 Us­ing a pinch at a time, add the co­coa pow­der to the ben­tonite clay un­til you have your de­sired colour. If you want a white- grey colour, ex­clude the co­coa pow­der and only use the ben­tonite clay. Step 2 Store in an air­tight con­tainer away from mois­ture to avoid clumps from form­ing. Step 3 If you want a stronger brown colour, start with the co­coa pow­der as your base and lighten it ac­cord­ingly by adding the ben­tonite a lit­tle bit at a time. The ben­tonite will help your eye­shadow stay put. Lightly dust on your shadow, build­ing it up as you work.

It was An­gelina Jolie who first brought the video game icon Lara Croft to pow­er­ful and vi­brant life. Now, seven years later, Ali­cia Vikan­der has stepped into her own com­bat gear to kick se­ri­ous butt. No stranger to phys­i­cally de­mand­ing roles (think Ava in Ex Machina), the Os­car win­ner re­ally owns the role of the Lon­don bike courier who goes in search of her fa­ther, Lord Richard Croft (Do­minic West), all while putting an end to a planned geno­cide and sav­ing the world. Ac­tion-packed is an un­der­state­ment.

Ac­ri­mony

The tal­ented Tyler Perry wrote and di­rected this psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller star­ring Lyriq Bent as the wom­an­is­ing Robert and Taraji P Hen­son as Melinda, his venge­ful wife who is driven to the brink of in­san­ity af­ter she learns of her hus­band’s dou­ble life and phi­lan­der­ing ways. A chill­ing tale that’s a far cry from Tyler’s Madea come­dies.
