Up the ante on your beauty regime, and accessorise your eyes with some of this Season’s most sought-after products! Trial and tested, here are my favourite eye-catching products you need in your makeup bag!



For the trendsetters among us, Giorgio Armani’s Eyes To Kill Palette in #8 has got us sorted – with 4 shades of easy-to-blend mauve shadows to highlight, shade and enhance your eyes with. Worn on the eyes of everyone from Kim Kardashian to Scarlett Johansson, the mauve colour trend suites all skin colourings.





If Superman was a mascara, he would be an Ellis Faas Mascara. Faster than a speeding bullet, you can lengthen or thicken your lashes – the choice is yours. Simply layer your lashes top and bottom till your heart’s content. The only thing you don’t have a choice in is the separation it gives you lashes! TipAlways start by curling your lashes.






If highlighting and contouring is your flavour, this is the palette for you! With every colour of the neutrals rainbow, you can rest assure all your bases are covered. With 4 extra shades positioned front and centre to sculpt, highlight and colour your cheeks as well – this palette is undoubtedly the perfect travel companion and a favourite of my own!




Looking to add a little colour into your routine, but without it being brash or looking dated? Blending Scout’s Mineral Eye Liner in to the lash line, top and bottom, will give you the understated effect you might be looking for. A perfect blend of vibrancy and depth, this rich-shade of blue will define the eyes and enhance your eye colour. Tip; For a more smokey cat-eye look, rim the inner waterline of  your eyes before lightly squeeze them together to get that Kate Moss rockstar finish.




One way to get you in that Summer-time mood is with Shiseido’s Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Leather. Washes of creamy, shimmering-bronzeness across your eye lids is a sure way to make you look and feel like your eyes are on holidays -constantly! Tip; It’s like finger painting 101. Simply smudge the colour across the width of your lash line and blend up and out. Note; Pat the cream color into areas that you feel may need some intensity or depth.





There is no escaping the instant sexiness that comes over you when you pop on a lash. Suddenly you can’t help but become aware of ever flutter or wink. No need for messy eyeliners when it comes to using a Velour Lash. It comes built in! Tip; First thing’s first though, always start by curling your natural lashes so the falsies and your lashes blend seamlessly. NoteLine the base of the lash with Duo Lash Glue and allow a few minutes for the glue to become tacky before applying.



It’s the perfect shade of gold and Summer-time bronze. Laura Mercier’s Satin Matte Eye Colour in Gold Seduction blended across the lids for a subtle bronzed-goddess look. Add a plash of water to intensify or use as an eyeliner by night. Either way your eyes are going to look like they are dancing in a Mediterranean sunset.
