My seven step guide to perfect night­time eyes

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - BEAUTY & FITNESS -

Ap­ply eye primer, which sets your eye­shadow so the colour won’t fade, bleed or crease. With a flat eye­shadow brush, use a white shim­mer shadow just un­der the arch of the brow to catch light and make the eyes look larger and pop.

With the eyes closed, use an­other flat shadow brush to ap­ply a wash of warm golden shim­mer across the lids and up to meet the brow high­lighter.

It’s im­por­tant at this stage to use an eye­shadow blend­ing brush as it is key to cre­at­ing the look. And once you get used to this brush you will be able to cre­ate beau­ti­fully blended eye make-up. Tips for us­ing this brush; do not put too much pres­sure on the brush; if you are us­ing it to blend colour across the crease, start on the out­side us­ing cir­cu­lar mo­tions, then back and forth. Fi­nally, for ex­tra depth of warmth to the eye, use a light matte brown just slightly be­low the tran­si­tion colour.

Us­ing a bul­let brush, blend a medium choco­late brown shade un­der­neath the bot­tom lash line to cre­ate dark­ness un­der the eye and amp up the drama.

Us­ing a dark brown/black eye­shadow, press at the outer cor­ners just where the top and bot­tom of the eye meets.

Fi­nally, add a kohl black eye­liner along the whole length of the bot­tom wa­ter­line to make the white of your eyes pop in con­trast.
