1 PUT A LID ON IT DIF­FI­CULTY 1/3

It’s time to own your over­board fe­line flicks. You know the ones where you’re try­ing to even out your eye­liner and all of a sud­den, it’s cov­er­ing your en­tire eye­lid? Yep, those ones. Ac­cord­ing to make-up artist and Real Tech­niques co-founder Ni­cola Chap­man, mas­ter­ing the S/S 18 House Of Hol­land look is as easy as pie. First, make sure you slather on an eye­shadow primer, then “us­ing an orange eye paint and a shad­ing brush, fol­low the eye­lid crease, wing­ing it out at the cor­ner”. If you’ve gone a bit eye-paint happy, just clean up your mis­takes with a cot­ton bud (we won’t tell any­one). For max­i­mum im­pact, “Keep brows, lips and cheeks al­most pro­duct­free.” It’s that sim­ple.

2 CRY BABY DIF­FI­CULTY 2/3

If Atlein S/S 18 is any­thing to go by, cried-off make-up just got wear­able. And this time you won’t be need­ing that crappy ex to achieve the look. Chap­man rec­om­mends work­ing from the cen­tre of the eye out­wards, us­ing a “cream eye­liner and a fine brush for an orange cat-eye flick”. Then, for the fun part: “Us­ing a shadow brush, smudge the colour un­der the out­side cor­ners of the eyes.” For def­i­ni­tion, fin­ish with a wa­ter­proof black liner in the top wa­ter­line. No Kleenex re­quired.

3 IN­NER BEAUTY DIF­FI­CULTY 1.5/3

If you’re not ready for a sin­gle shock of shadow, jazz up a clas­sic metal­lic eye with a hint of neon, as seen at Chro­mat S/S 18. Us­ing a cream shadow and your fingers,“Dab a small amount on the in­ner cor­ners of the eyes,” says Chap­man. Then “grab an­other metal­lic paint pot a cou­ple of shades darker than your skin tone and run that all over the top of the eye­lid”. Fin­ish with a swish of mas­cara and black liner in­side the top and bot­tom wa­ter­line. You’re ready for your close-up.
