 The winged eye:

A steady hand and patients are all you need to perfect this look.

  1. Cut a piece of cello tape about 2cm and stick it on the outer edge of your eyes, in the direction you want the wing to be.
  2. Using your eye pencil, trace along the edge of the angle to draw the wing and using the tape as a guide.
  3. To finish, extend the line along your upper lash line.

Ombre eye:

The secret to any Ombre eye, is knowing how to blend properly.

  1. Apply a primer of your choice over your eyelids. This will prevent the eyeshadow from creasing.
  2. Line the base of the top of your eyelashes with black eyeliner to the outside corner of your eye. Now blend and soften the line with a make-up brush.
  3. In circular motions apply your preferred blue eyeshadow colur over your eyelid. This will be your base colour. A darker shade will work best.
  4. Now choose a lighter blue shade than the base colour, apply this colour from the crease in your eye to the outer edge of your eyebrow.
  5. With a blending brush, blend the areas where the two colours meet to create a smooth Ombre effect.
  6. Finish off your look with mascara.

Tips for wearing blue eye shadow:

  1. Go for a more natural lip colour when wearing a brightly coloured eye.
  2. Keep the colours simple. Two shades is simple but will leave a lasting impression.
  3. When applying eyeliner free hand, make sure to rest your elbows on a flat steady surface. This will help you control your hand movements.
