We catch up with one of our favourite beauty vloggers, actress Teni Panosian, the make up maven behind Miss Maven! Read all about her desert island must-haves; how she spends her down-time and her beauty predictions for the year ahead.
What do you think is going to be the biggest makeup look for this season?
Creative liner looks. Whether it's your standard black or an eye-catching vibrant color, it was all over the runways. The mod liner look is especially hot right now; paired with a pastel lip it's perfect for the season!
What's your biggest extravagance?
Massages. I get them often! I work 7 days a week so it's my one window of time every few weeks to check out for about 90 minutes!
What's your greatest achievement to date?
All of my achievements are tied to one another, neither are exclusive of the other, so I would say my greatest achievement is having done all of it by myself! I'm very proud of that.
In what place are you happiest?
On the couch with my dogs in my lap. Nothing redirects my thoughts like my animals.
Who is your biggest beauty crush right now?
Kate Beckinsale. Always flawless.
What would be your desert island Eyeko product?
The Eyeko Black Magic Mascara. It's just perfect in every way!!
If you could teach someone a single beauty trick what would it be?
Highlighting. Adding a touch of glow to the top of the cheekbones and extending out toward the temples can bring so much life to your face.
Your favourite youtube videos featuring Eyeko?
I always love Pixiwoo's videos using Eyeko, as well as Lisa Eldridge considering she's such a highly regarded makeup artist. I also love Mortem3r's Smokey Cat Eye video using Eyeko, she does a nice job of creating dramatic and sleek looks!

Billed as a presentation rather then catwalk show, the debut of new label GRACE proved to be the hottest ticket in town. Styled by none other then Katie Grand the excitement built as we discovered that the girls walking the show included Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Suki Waterhouse and Sam Rollinson.
With Lisa Eldridge making eyes for Eyeko the atmosphere back stage was surprisingly relaxed despite the girls rushing in from previous show commitments that ran late. For the pared down collection of LBD's 'Little Grace Dresses'
we were thrilled to introduce our NEW LASH WARDROBE, the ultimate accessory to your eye wardrobe. Katie channeled Robert Palmer's Addicted to Love video and wanted a red lip and liner-less eye to compliment the black dresses and the opulent surroundings of The Grill Room, Cafe Royal.
“Lashes were curled and a coat of Black Magic Mascara slicked through upper lashes only. I then applied Eyeko’s new corner false lashes which are really easy and fool proof to apply and give a really pretty, natural elongated look to the eye.”

Lisa applied a coat of BLACK MAGIC MASCARA to upper lashes only before adding a corner lash to elongate the eye, adding definition as well as creating the illusion of cat eye without the liner! Full natural brows were crucial to balance the look and Lisa and the make-up team were happy to discover our NEW BROW LINER which they used to feather in sparse brows before brushing through with our award-winning BROW GEL to style brows with natural-looking hold.
“I used the new Eyeko Brow Liner, liquid brow pen, which is perfectly subtle and long lasting. Great for filling in any gaps and enhancing natural brows.”

It was evident that the brow love was still going strong as make-up artist Lisa Eldridge teamed thickened brows with a lived-in lip echoing the Robert Palmer 'Addicted to Love' girls for the Katy Grand styled Grace show featuring a collection of LBD's or Little Grace Dresses. Using light strokes of NEW Eyeko Brow Liner and brushed through with Eyeko Brow Gel boosting lashes with a lick of Eyeko Black Magic Mascara and corner lashes from the soon-to launch Eyeko Lash Wardrobe for a sultry tilt.
Brows were also gelled up and feathered in at Roksanda Ilincic, Margaret Howell and JW Anderson. Ofcourse with Brit Brow Mascot Cara Delevigne in town for LFW there was plenty of brow love to go round at Mulberry, Burberry and Giles Deacon.
I can't live without our award-winning Eyeko Brow Gel, it's serum infused for a Cara-brow worthy boost. The hold really lasts but the finish is natural and I'm pleased that I've managed to create a Brow Liner which is equal to the Brow Gel in high-performance yet totally natural looking.
Coloured liner, especially blue, shows no signs of abating as spied at several London shows this season.
First up Giles Deacon scored a coup with brown-eyed girl Kendal Jenner smouldering in fierce 80's blue eyeliner
applied in a chunky strip beneath the eyes teamed with a bold brow, nude lip and mussed up hair that perfectly complimented the mostly mono chrome collection. Like true 21st century girls Kendal gave the look a thumbs up in a backstage selfie whilst Cara Delevigne filmed herself whilst on the catwalk to share on instagram.
Elsewhere blue showed up in graphic form at Temperley and Marques Almeida painted on in cobalt squares on the outer corners and smudged over lids at Julien MacDonald. At Todd Lynn, make-up artist Sharon Dowsett chose Prussian Blue brushed above the crease and over brows as well as brow bones and we saw ice blue on the girls at John Rocha.
I love navy liner day and night as it works well on everybody and really does brighten up the whites of your eyes; giving you all the definition of black but softer. Try Eyeko Midnight Blue Mascara and Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Navy if you're in a blue mood.
Despite the collection featuring every shade of blue from cobalt to navy, black was the colour of choice for make up at Top Shop Unique ringed around the eyes Margot Tenenbaum style with minimal fuss and straight locks, hair slide optional. Just like the clothes the make-up was super-wearable and easy to master. More black eyeliner was on show at Jean-Pierre Braganza with a tough take on our favourite cat eye. Make-up artist Terry Barber added two fierce strokes to the lower lash line and as with every other 'all-about-eyes' look left the rest of the face bare only adding a subtle hint of pink to lips and cheeks keeping the make-up the right side of pretty.
Marcus Lupfer showcased another favourite sooty liner complimenting the 60's vibe where make-up artist Lucy Burt gave each girl a bespoke liner look from kitten flick to sultry kohl rimmed eyes.
I'm obsessed with creating the perfect black eyeliner and look forward to launching Eyeko Visual Eyes which is our easiest to master liquid liner yet. Right now I'm tightlining with Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner which sits well on the waterline and thickens up your lashes a treat.
Green was the new Black at both Antonio Berardi and House of Holland. At Berardi make-up artist Lucia Peroni smudged emerald green ringed around the whole eye, adding a dab of vaseline to give it a worn in, 'deconstructed' finish. Completed with bushy brows "part Brooke Shields, part boy," for a look that was cool downtown New Yorker but also sweet because Antonio's mother always wears emerald green liner showing that liner love is always in style.
A winged out, colour wash of deep dark green was the look at House of Holland with lashings of mascara and more full brows balancing out the look making it more rebel less lady teamed with graphic hot pink and lilac nail art.
I think a key look to wearing strong colour is mascara, mascara, mascara to really frame the eye. Eyeko Black Magic is a favourite with make-up artists from Kay Montano to Lisa Eldridge as it gives you the blackest, stand-out lashes.
"Modelled by the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Suki Waterhouse, styled by Katie Grand and designed by the duo behind Frame denim, new LBD label Grace called upon a beauty dream team for its debut presentation at London's Café Royal last night.
Lisa Eldridge created a flawless beauty look with luminous skin (using a combination of some of her favourite products - "we had an early call time so there's plenty of time to get it right"), matt red lips with a MAC Ruby Woo base and delicately defined eyes, focusing on lashes and brows. Eldridge debuted the delicate corner lashes from Eyeko's new Lash Wardrobe (a soon-to-be-launched hero set created by Eyeko creative director Nina Leykind and creative consultant Alexa Chung), for a look that was arresting yet understated. "These lashes are so easy to use, you basically just plonk them on," Eldridge told us, before adding the brand's Black Magic Mascara, and emphasising brows with an upcoming Brow Liner pen that we've already placed an order for ours.
"There’s nothing more us beauty ladies love than having a good old natter with the clever people behind some of our favourite beauty brands, so you can imagine how excited we were to catch up with the oh-so-wonderful Nina Leykind, founder and creative director of Eyeko".
"Make-up veterans and partners Max and Nina Leykind created their eye-specific brand Eyeko in 1999 and it's taken the world by storm. Actresses Jennifer Lawrence, Salma Hayek and Gemma Arterton are all big fans and critically acclaimed make-up artists Lisa Eldridge and Kay Montano choose to have Eyeko in their kit. But this month, the brand's uber-cool credentials could be about to go through the roof. Model and fashionista Alexa Chung, who already has a Mulberry bag named after her, will be revealing her very own Eyeko collection."
It's no secret that Eyeko loves a 60's eye look! We loved Cosmopolitan UK's recent article on 'Celebrities nailing 60s hair and makeup' and were happy to see our girl Alexa Chung. Also in the mix were Eyeko fans Mad Men actress Jessica Pare and Londoner Gizzi Erskine who is as well known for her 60's persona as her TV cooking!
"We love Alexa Chung's signature 60's eye make up - the feline flicks go with every outfit. It's no wonder eye makeup brand Eyeko signed her up as their Creative Director."
It's no secret Alexa is a huge fan of liquid eyeliner so naturally since joining Eyeko she's improved on her favourite and created her own! Sign up for her limited edition Alexa for Eyeko set to be sure you'll be first in line to try her products!
"Gizzi Erskine rocks her classic beehive with conviction, pairing the style with doe eye-esque false lashes and retro black liner".
"Mad Men's Jessica Pare took on the 60's look with a ponytail, backcombed with height at the crown."
With any undo focus attention on the eyes with our award-winning Eyeko Brow Gel to frame your eyes to perfection and add a fine line of Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner and Skinny Brush Mascara to flatter your flutter.
