Fool­proof eye­liner

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - BEAUTY -

Eye­liner done right de­fines your eyes, Al­i­son’s look is a great ex­am­ple. Get it wrong, how­ever, and it can look over­done, or make eyes look droopy. Here’s our no-non­sense guide to party-per­fect eye­liner…

1 Start with a brown, grey or plum shade of eye­liner. Black tends to be too harsh for most skin tones, whereas warmer, softer shades make your eye colour pop. Ap­ply it on the outer cor­ners of both your top and bot­tom lash lines.

2 Take a short, densely bris­tled eye­liner brush and blend the liner to dif­fuse it. This leaves a more flat­ter­ing fin­ish.

3 Fin­ish with a slick of black liq­uid liner across your top lash line. It doesn’t have to be su­per thick, and you don’t have to ex­tend it out to a cat eye. A sin­gle line won’t look too ob­vi­ous but it will make your lashes look thicker, and your eyes look more open. We are head over heels for this nifty trick.
