To recreate our model’s gorgeous look, follow the steps below;

Step 1 – Start by using our Eye Shadow Brush to apply Ivory Tower all over the lid and brow bone to neutralise any redness and create the perfect base.

Step 2 – With our Eye Shadow Brush apply Silver Lining across the lid and in the inner corners of the eyes.

Step 3 – Using the Socket Line Brush apply Double Denim in the socket line and along the lower lash line to frame the eyes.

Step 4 – Finally with our Eye Blending Brush apply more Double Denim in the outer corners of the lid blending inwards to create a smoky yet dramatic effect.

Expert Tip; Apply our Natural Eye Pencil in Black on the upper and lower waterlines for a truly smouldering look.

With 20 shades to choose from we know it can be difficult to choose your favourite colours so we have made a few suggestions for a range of gorgeous eye effects;

Pale Neutrals – Starry Eyed and Peekaboo, these light neutral shades suit most skin tones and act as great base shades.

Office Uniform – Take the biscuit and I should Cocoa – These shades are perfect to create a natural brown eye look, great for day to night make-up.

Evening Glamour – Voodoo and Rolling Stone – For a full on dark glamorous eye effect blend these colours over the entire lid for a sultry smoky eye effect.

Colour Pop – Eye Candy and Drama Queen – a great alternative to smoky eyes, these shades blend easily to create a soft pop of colour perfect for spring.

Expert Tip: For added intensity and sparkle add one of our loose Mineral Eye Shadow shades such as Angelic to highlight under the brows or the inner corners of eyes. Try using one of our darker loose shades such as Moonlight as a liner with our wet Eye Liner Brush on the top lash line for extra polish.
