Perfect Smoky Eye
The smokey eye trend has been massive for ages and is still going strong. It’s definitely one of my favourite looks – you could go for a simple, every-day style or a more bold, statement look for a fun night out with the girls. The key with the smokey look is to BLEND BLEND BLEND! Make sure your colours flow evenly into each other, and add some gorgeous bronzes, golds and highlights to really make the look pop. Also be sure to prime your eyelid and under-eye area to ensure crease-proof, long wearing eyeshadow.
I love adding a bright highlight right under the brow bone to add dimension and a bit of x-factor. Simply add a white or another bright, highlighting shade to your brush and sweep it along your brow bone right underneath your eyebrows.
