“When one of your heroes teams up with one of your favourite brands, it’s guaranteed to be love at first sight – and that’s how I felt when I saw the David Downton for Eyeko collection when it launched earlier this year. The iconic illustrator collaborated with the ‘for your eyes only’ brand to create a beautiful cosmetic bag, eyeliner, mascara and brow gel, the ultimate kit for graphic eyes that are as captivating as the models in Downton’s infamous drawings. The eyeliner in particular is excellent; a silky brush tip, it leaves a highly pigmented, fluid line which you can draw with precision and ease, and after daily use (even atop my favourite cream shadow) it keeps its intensity and inkiness. Meanwhile, the mascara aids with curl and definition and the brow gel subtly brings a stronger frame to sparse brows. All this in easily one of my favourite ever makeup bags; stylish, just as you’d expect anything with Downton’s name to be, and essential for those of us who like to be a little artistic with our eye makeup.”
