Perfect party peepers
Make sure your eyes are dressed to impress this Christmas with a selection of shimmer shadows, liners and false lashes.
Here’s a run down of my party must-haves:
MAC Metal-X cream shadow – A powdery and vibrantly pigmented cream with a liquid finish to make your eyes go pop. Can also be used on cheeks and décolletage for extra impact.
Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV – 16 eyeshadows ranging from glam neutrals to dramatic shades in matte and shimmer finishes. Open the drawer and watch the how-to video for application tips and techniques.
Givenchy L’Ombre Noir – Create the ultimae smoky eye. My advice, apply this shade dry for an effective day look and use wet for a dramatic night look. When wet you can also use it as a precision eyeliner, to shape the lashes or to coat and colour the tips of lashes.
Bobbi Brown Metallic eyeshadow – If you’re looking for high-shimmer and a high-pigmented formula then look no further. This sleek, flip-top compact contains the ultimate shimmer eyeshadow with a striking metallic finish.
GuerlainEcrin 6 couleurs eye shadow – A wardrobe of 6 eyeshadows in matte, iridescent or satiny finishes. You can shade, line and add luminosity with just one handy compact,
Dior Precision Eyeliner - This automatic, total-control pen eyeliner allows you to create an even line in just one stroke.
Bobbi Brown Long wear Gel Eyeliner- This award-winning liner gives you the look of liquid liner with the ease & feel of a gel formula. The long-wearing, water-resistant colour glides on and let’s you get it just right before it dries – then stays without a smear or crease.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-smudge liquid liner – With 15-hours staying power this smudge proof liquid liner gives you a perfect line without budging.
Benefit Magic Ink eyeliner - This jet black liquid eyeliner is pure drama in a bottle. The fine tip allows you to create a perfectly precise line and the intense black shapes and defines the eyes with a graphic outline.
For the perfect finishing touches add some lashes. My favourites have to be the following by Illamasqua.
Opulence – These scream party, party, party.
Grandeur – the one’s that will make you stand out from the crowd.
False lashes – purple – Just add these lashes for after dark drama.
Top tip: To ensure your shadows stay on for longer apply a primer to the lids.
