GET THE LOOK: GLOSSY EYELIDS

This make-up look has us swooning – an ultra-modern, dewy lilac lid on a flawless canvas.

Follow these simple steps from make-up artist Shahnaz Cola-Wrensch to pin down this covetable look.

STEP 1

Beauty1

Prep your skin as usual with serum, moisturizer, foundation and concealer. The first step to glossy-lids is priming. Start from the lash line and cover the whole area up until the brow. Making use of an eyelid primer will ensure that no clotting will take place on the eyelid.

STEP 2

For a long-lasting application, combine a highly pigmented powder eye shadow over primed lids with a flat brush, and buffer up towards the crease of your lids. If you prefer a matte eye shadow, just take note that the colour will become darker when the gloss is applied.

Use a synthetic brush to lightly dab the gloss onto your lids. Apply the gloss gently and evenly, without reworking the eye shadow. Border the lash line without touching the lashes to prevent the product from entering your eye.

TOP TIP: For a subtle effect that lasts longer, apply gloss onto the back of your hand first then dab over the center of your eyelids.
