FLICK OFF

Some days you want to do the least, not the most. ‘A cat’s eye says, “I’m putting in e„ort” – and it doesn’t mat­ter what else I’m wear­ing,’ says Issa. A liq­uid liner with a wheel-like ap­pli­ca­tor (it looks like a mini pizza cut­ter), such as Revlon Colorstay Ex­ac­t­ify Liq­uid Liner (R199 at Edgars.co.za), makes the look even more e„or­t­less. For a per­fectly smooth line, use one –in­ger from the op­po­site hand to lift the eye gen­tly, cre­at­ing a taut can­vas. In­tim­i­dated by liq­uid liner? Trace the shape with a pen­cil –irst.

LIT-UATION

On nights when you’re tempted to trade in your friends plans for the couch, rock metal­lic lips. ‘This puts me in a life-of-the-party mood, even if I don’t feel that way,’ says Issa. Stumped on shades? Rose gold is lat­ter­ing for all (try MAC Viva Glam Lip­stick (R250) Satin), gun­metal looks great on cool un­der­tones, and bronze is hot on warm com­plex­ions.
