TWINKLE STAR

Are you ready to try the trend that had fash­ion’s front-row rev­ellers swoon­ing? It’s all about glit­tery eyes, and you too can pull it off with these easy steps: 1. Ap­ply glit­ter and eye­shadow be­fore foun­da­tion. To prime, choose a foun­da­tion that has a sticky con­sis­tency, so the glit­ter ad­heres prop­erly. 2. Us­ing an eye­liner that matches the glit­ter, line the bot­tom eye­lid. Fol­low up with a light slick of eye­shadow. 3. Dip an eye­shadow brush in wa­ter and squeeze out the ex­cess fluid. Care­fully dip the tip into glit­ter, and pat lightly across the bot­tom lid, re­peat­ing the process for more depth. Try M.A.C

Pig­ment in Sil­ver, R380. Then ap­ply a coat of mas­cara. To re­move glit­ter in un­wanted places, dip a cot­ton bud in face oil, and care­fully swipe.

LASH LOVE

If you’re look­ing for a wand that coats your lashes from root to tip, Lancôme’s Grandiôse

Mas­cara, R455, is ideal. The patented ‘swan­neck’ wand and high­pre­ci­sion brush grabs each and ev­ery lash for fanned-out, dol­l­like eyes.

SO-NOW BROW

Make-up artists at the Trus­sardi S/S17 fash­ion show went for a nat­u­ral look by brush­ing a brow pow­der through the brow’s strands in an up­ward mo­tion. For brows that are sparse, in­vest in a brow gel in your hair colour.

SKIN DEEP

Try L’Oréal Re­vi­talift Laser Re­new Pre­ci­sion Eye

Cream, R260. It stim­u­lates the skin’s cell re­newal to de­crease tired-look­ing eyes and dark cir­cles. The gen­tle ap­pli­ca­tor gives you a cool­ing mas­sage around the eye, which is so re­fresh­ing.
