  • If you are looking to create a classical / timeless look then your best bet will be an array of matte powders in neutral tones from light to dark.
  • Choose a shape that accentuation your desired eye shape and bare this in mind whilst apply eyeshadow.
  • Unless you are using just one shade, try to use at least 2 brushes to ensure an even blend of colour.
  • If you are very new to makeup and don’t want to shell out on brushes I would recommend buying a kit that has a blending brush, flat brush & a pencil brush supplied. These can be found at super drug for around £8.00.
  • Always rememeber to prep the eyelid with a primer, powder or foundation before applying any shadow. Especially when using dark or very bright colours to ensure that the colour doesn’t stain the eyelids.
  • Tap off any excess from your brush, remember to add a little at a time and build as you go.
  • If you want to make your eye colour really pop then choose a contrasting shade to your eye colour.
    – Blue eyes come alive with any shade of peach hues & orange undertones.
    – Green eyes are great with bronze or caramel tones & a pop of lavendar.
    – Hazel eyes are stunning with chestnut shades, brown tones  pops of purple or green.
    – Brown eyes look wonderful with all natural shades within your skin tones range & beautiful jewel tones to brighten the eye.
