How to apply eye makeup
Applying eye makeup is no easy task and it takes a great deal of skill to perfect the art of creating beautiful eye makeup.
5 simple steps to expertly apply eye makeup
Clarins recommends the following 5 basic steps to applying your eye makeup. Firstly, you need to create a base, much like you would for the rest of your face, which your eye makeup can work with. Eye creams and serums protect the delicate skin around the eye contour. Try smoothing a thin layer of Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base over the eye contour. This is a good starting point for the rest of your eye makeup to follow and will prolong the staying power of your eyeshadow and liner.
Draw along your top lash line with an eye pencil to highlight your eyes, then gently blend an eyeshadow from the Clarins eyeshadow range onto the lid and crease. To create a more intense look, try using contrasting colours, such as black and white, to bring attention to your eyes.
More tips to creating beautiful eye makeup
You can always switch from using an eye pencil to Clarins Instant Liner. The liquid formula ensures a precise line that is perfect for enhancing your eyes, especially when combined with pared-back eye shadow and a light coat of mascara.
Another top Clarins beauty tip is the eyebrow pencil. When applied properly, an eyebrow pencil can enhance and define the natural curve of your brows. Use the comb-brush end to shape your brows and create perfectly framed eyes. Apply for daytime and evening looks.
