THEY LOOK GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT!
Although personally not a great dabbler with eyeshadows, I do appreciate the skill of a well made over eye, and for that reason I love these five new cutesy Blingtone shades from myface.cosmetics. They’re just so pretty. I like to think of them as cosmetics answer to Laudree’s macaroons!
Smudgy, sheeny eyes are hot, hot, hot and their eye math really works: a crushed pearl formula, mixed with on-message colours that mingle together and give a sexy wet-looking shine. Kay Montano, superlative make-up artist and myface.cosmetics creative director reveals that no one else has a formula like this. “The balance of pearl and pigment is unparalleled,” she says. After sweeping across my lids, I can vouch that they’re easy breezy to wear and gorgeous to apply. They also don’t crease into the eye socket as the day wears on.
Here Kay gives some of her secret eye recipes to give your make-up a new edge.
· Conceal first in the cove of the eye, and then the outer edge using an upwards tick motion - this lifts the eyes and stops them from appearing 'heavy' when applying shadow.
· Always apply metallic shadow with your fingertips as the particles will lie more flat and become more light reflective.
· Build your colour gradually. Blingtones are made using a special binding oil meaning that it has an amazing wet look effect over the lid. To create more intensity, apply a darker shade like black ice onto the outer corners of the eyes and into the lash line.
