Makeup Inspiration

Tonight is date night with my Hub and I’m taking inspiration from these gorgeous Lisa Ho images (backstage – Mercedes Fashion Week) and will don a classic smokey eye look.

SIMPLE MAKEUP RULES:

SMALL or CLOSE-SET EYES

  • Use a light colour on the inner eye and extend to a medium/dark shadow on the outer half of the eye lid.
  • Apply eyeliner from the outer two-thirds and extend the corner beyond the end of the eye. Make the line thicker at the outer corner of the eye.

LARGE or WIDE-SET EYES

  • Start with a Medium or Dark shadow in the inner corner of the eye and extend out towards the edge of your brow.
  • Apply eyeliner from the inner corner of the eye.

MAKEUP TIP: TRY A SMOKEY EYE USING YOUR ENHANCER OR INTENSIFIER COLOUR

INTENSIFIER COLOUR is usually contrasting to your eye colour

  •                 Brown Eyes – Try a deep or emerald Green
  •                 Blue Eyes – Plum or Coral
  •                 Green Eyes – Purple or Pink
  •                 Hazel Eyes – Blue or Violet

ENHANCER COLOUR is a pigment which is the same as your eye colour

  •                 Brown Eyes – Dark Slate or Brown
  •                 Blue Eyes – Blue Shadow
  •                 Green Eyes – Green
