A flick of an eyeliner can completely change your look – and if you work with the shape of your eyes, it can make a massive difference.
Collection ambassador and celebrity make-up artist Francesca Neill has come up with tips on how to create a whole new bespoke look in 30 seconds …
CLOSE SET EYES = Double Wing
FRANCESCA SAYS: This is a really fun look to play with for a night out! A winged end will draw attention towards the outer edge of the eye, making them appear wider apart. Double the wing? Double the effect.
DOWNTURNED EYES = Bottom Only
FRANCESCA SAYS Those with downturned eyes can find winged eyeliner really frustrating. If you stuck with a regular cat-eye shape, this could exaggerate the downward shape. The easiest technique for lifting the eye is to stick to applying liner to the lower lash line. Follow the natural line and extend the mini-flick directly.
HOODED EYES = Thick Wing
FRANCESCA SAYS This look is perfect for hooded eyes as it will lift and open them. The COLLECTION Fast Stroke Liquid Liner (£2.99, Superdrug) is perfect for this look as the quick-dry formula prevents smudging which can often occur with this eye shape. Draw a line from the corner of your eye towards the brow bone and join up before using a kohl pencil across the outer Â lower lash line Â to create a perfectly lifted wing effect.
LARGE EYES = Waterline
FRANCESCA SAYS: This is a great look for large eyes as tracing the waterline will accentuate the shape of the eye, it is also a good option if your eyes are wide set as it will draw attention towards the inner corner.
SMALLER / MONOLID EYES = Top Only
FRANCESCA SAYS: You really just need a very simple line to enhance the shape, you don’t want anything too heavy otherwise you could risk your eyes looking event smaller. Drag the eyeliner straight across the lid and extended the line out to roughly the end of your brow. Adding a little drama such as metallic or glitter to the top eye line only is a great way to open them up and draw attention to the top lashes, apply over black liquid liner or pencil to complete this look for smaller eyes. To intensify, curl lashes and coat the top lashes with plenty of mascara or false lashes.
