Smouldering kohl eyes

Liquid liners and the heavy winged eyes in the style of Amy Winehouse is still very much a huge hit, but this summer also sees the welcome return of kohl eyeliners – one of my personal faves.

Designers such as Gucci, Zac Posen and Moschino used kohl eyeliners on models during their Spring/Summer10 catwalk shows and spiced up the look with a fresh new twist.

The new way to wear kohl

1)    Focus on the entire eye area. Line the top of your lash line and add a slight flick outward at the corners. Then work the liner through the inner eye up to the tear duct. This on-trend looks shapes your whole eye giving a strong and sexy feline shape.

2)    For a contemporary younger edge, use the kohl eyeliner just to the outer corners of the eyes and the inners, leaving the middle areas of the eye blank.

3)    For a dramatic look, use the kohl liner heavy below the lash line and blend in for a new smokey look.

The kohl eyeliners I recommend are:
Clarins Eyeliner Pencil – also available in gorgeous shades for a splash of colour
Yves Saint Laurent Eyeliner Pencil
Yves Saint Laurent Long Lasting Eyeliner Pencil
