FAB BAG PICKS: The Perfect Eye

Eye make-up if done right, can really take you from girl-next-door to diva status. Try this the next time you want jaws to drop!

blue eyes

Prep with concealer: Under-eye circles or just the natural bluish discolouration under the inner eye corner can be poofed away with concealer. Apply three dots of concealer under each eye. Start at the inner corner where skin tends to be darkest, then under the pupil and the third on the outer edge. Pat, NEVER rub, with your ring finger (it has the softest pad) until the concealer melts.

Base Up: Priming your eyes is the secret to keeping your shadow in place for hours lest it ends up a greasy line in your crease. You don’t need an eyeshadow base though, just use your foundation to completely cover your upper and lower lids and blend gently, as you do for your skin otherwise.

Start with eyeliner: Use an eyeliner pencil in your favourite shade or if out, dark eyeshadows work great as eyeliners, wet a slanted brush, then dip in a dark eyeshadow. Line eyes as close to the upper lashes as possible, from the inner corner to the outer. Follow with liner on bottom eyes, but only line from the middle of the eye out. Smudge the bottom line with a Q-tip or your finger – bold lines look funny. For a smoky look, use a brush to pat in a dark eyeshadow along the upper lid and below the lid. Blend it so it’s “smudge-y.” You can also add kohl to the inner rims if you like.

Move to Eyeshadow. For a really professional look, use three-toned shadow (the trios available with so many brands) and build from lids to brow. Start with a light colour that almost matches your lid. Sweep the colour across the lid and up to your brow bone. Follow with a medium colour across your lid only. Build on this with a darker colour in the crease. Now blend the colours well so that there are no “stark” colour lines anywhere. You could also go two-tone with the medium and dark colours – a light green and a dark blue for instance. 

Suggested colours: blue, green, brown.

Highlight: Dab a finger into the lightest eye shadow and then press it into the inner corner of my eye where the upper lid meets the bottom lid. This totally makes eyes “pop.” Take the same light eyeshadow and dab it on your browbone, concentrating on your mid-brow outward. Blend with your finger.

Mascara Up: Place the wand of your mascara brush at the bottom of lashes and wiggle back and forth. Follow with another few sweeps of the wand. Apply to bottom lashes as well. And viola, perfect eyes for the goddess-next-door look!
