How excited were we to see our favourite make-up artist and beauty guru Lisa Eldridge’s latest tutorial - “Alexa Chung Makeup Tutorial - Starring Alexa Chung!”
Yes our gal Alexa Chung! Watch them have a natter and marvel at the finished look. As Lisa says, “It’s an effortless and easy look to wear.”
We’ve taken the liberty of grabbing some screen shots to put together this easy how-to for perfect summer eyes!
Yes clumpy mascara is a thing! We spied the trend at fashion week A/W14 where make-up supremo Pat McGrath stated it was all about 'lashes, liner and brows.' For Prada she applied imperfect mascara which looked surprisingly pretty.
Be sure to keep the rest of your make-up light and dewy to pull off clumpy lashes ensuring your look is youthful not doubtful!
"The question I probably get asked the most is how I create my winged eyeliner, but when I was first getting started with makeup I found out the hard way that this isn't a skill that you can pick up overnight. I have a couple of guides demonstrating a few methods to help simplify liner application, but the key to perfection is practice, practice and practice some more! If there was anything that I could teach right off the bat, it would definitely be that."
There's a lot of buzz around contouring to change the planes of your face in the beauty world right now and so we wanted to adapt the concept to eyeliner! Change your eye shape with just a flick of the wrist.
DEEP SET EYES
Apply liner to the waterline top and bottom to add definition and make eyes pop.
Wing liner up and out on the upper lash line and apply a fine line along the inner corner only to lift the eye upwards.
CLOSE SET EYES
Focus liner on the outer corners of your eyes to lift up and out.
WIDE SET EYES
Apply a thick line across upper lids starting from the inner corner to bring eyes closer together.
It's classic yet always on trend. It matches any outfit day or night and has the ability to make you look more pulled together then you necessarily are.

MAKE-UP ARTIST: ANNIE LEVY
Stand-out lashes are always a must in our eyes - bold lips or not! Remember Eyeko Black Magic Mascara comes with the Eyeko Shield - a neat beauty tool you pop behind your lashes as you apply mascara to avoid smudging your lids whilst enabling you to get 'right in at the root' as advised by Annie! We created the Eyeko Shield when we noticed that make-up artists use the end of a brush or their thumb when applying mascara to models to avoid messing...
