1. To prime, choose a foundation that has a sticky consistency, so the glitter adheres properly.

2. Using an eyeliner that matches the glitter, line the bottom eyelid. Follow up with a light slick of eyeshadow.

3. Dip an eyeshadow brush in water and squeeze out the excess fluid. Carefully dip the tip into glitter, and pat lightly across the bottom lid, repeating the process for more depth. Then apply a coat of mascara.

4. To remove glitter from unwanted places, dip a cotton bud in face oil, and carefully swipe.


If you’re looking for a wand that coats your lashes from root to tip, Lancôme’s Grandiôse Mascara is ideal. The patented ‘swanneck’ wand and high-precision brush grabs each and every lash for fanned-out, doll-like eyes.


Make-up artists at the Trussardi S/S17 fashion show went for a natural look by brushing a brow powder through the brow’s strands in an upward motion. For brows that are sparse, invest in a brow gel in your hair colour.


Try L’Oréal Revitalift Laser Renew Precision Eye Cream. It stimulates the skin’s cell renewal to decrease tired-looking eyes and dark circles. The gentle applicator gives you a cooling massage around the eye, which is so refreshing.
