How to achieve envious statement eyes, with this monochrome look.......

I used.....

  • Mascara : Channel; Le Volume de Chanel (black: Noir) = As the Mascara state's ''Volume'' and that for me is what is delivers, lashes appear voluminous, thicker with deep a intense colour, best mascara I have found yet that creates real statement lashes.
  • Eyelash curler: Shu Uemura = A firm favorite in my make-up tool box, always creates the perfect curl.
  • Push eyeliner brush: NARS = this brush is used to create a fine line at the base of the lashes; it transforms cream or powder eyeshadow into eyeliner. The brush is wide and thin to create precise lines, so if like me your hands are not so steady, this is fantastic as the brush does most of the work to create a flawless fine line.
  • Eyeshadow: Collection, colour; Black velvet
  • Lower lash pencil eyeliner: Rimmel, colour; white. 
(see below where to buy)

How I achieved the look..........

Step 1: Dampen the Push eyeliner brush with water, then dab into the eyeshadow. Press the brush at the base of your lashes, closest to the root as possible, until the base is covered, you may need to re-apply with the eyeshadow, until you achieve the right depth of colour.

 Step 2: Apply Mascara, then wait until lashes a fully dry.

Step 3: Heat your lash curler with a hairdryer for just a few seconds, make sure the curlers are warm and not hot ,  I normally test on my hand first to make sure the curlers are at a safe temperature, once temperature is ok, curl the lashes for around 30 seconds, then release.
Important Tip: If when you release the curlers, they become stuck to the curler, do not pull, just keep them released from the clutch and lashes will eventually release themselves

Step 4: Finish with a white pencil eyeliner, on the bottom lash, to accentuate the look!
