As seen on the Gucci A/W’14 run­way, shim­mery eyes are ma­jor news right now! Cop the look by sweep­ing cop­per shadow on lids, and dust­ing the in­ner cor­ners with gold (this’ll make eyes look big­ger). Line the in­ner rim with a black pen­cil and use a brush to smudge the colour. Fin­ish with mas­cara.


Make the whites of your eyes pop with a swipe of gorge blue liner. Trace a line along your up­per lash line, wing­ing it out slightly. (Tip: in­vest in a pen­cil liner for added con­trol be­fore grad­u­at­ing to pow­der shadow). Ap­ply sil­ver shadow to the in­ner cor­ner for ex­tra shine, and com­ple­ment with tan­ger­ine lips and tips.


The swing­ing ’60s are so back, and with them is the ap­pear­ance of the thick cat eye. To cre­ate a high-im­pact retro wing, first make gel liner your BFF—it’s eas­ier to ap­ply and stays put longer. To do, start at the in­ner cor­ner and use a brush to drag colour along the lash line, flick­ing and ex­tend­ing it past the outer cor­ner of the eye. Now be­gin from the flick you just cre­ated, and work back to­wards the cen­tre. You want a shape that’s thin­ner on the out­side, and thicker in the mid­dle. Fill in any miss­ing spa­ces, and fin­ish with gen­er­ous coats of mas­cara.


Here’s an easy way to switch up your ev­ery­day look— bring in a white liner! Our look fea­tures a black, graphic liner on the up­per lids, and strong lines of white on the lower. For the top, use a ‘pen’ liner to trace along the lash line for a pre­cise flick. For the bot­tom, use a white pen­cil to cre­ate a graphic line from above the tear duct, ex­tend­ing it at the ends. Fin­ish with a co­ral lip.
