Max Made



With the awards Season on our door steps and the party Season in full swing, it’s time to make an elegant statement with our eyes – both on and off the red carpet – with this top 5 Maxmade signature eye makers!


Sometimes all you need is a little pep-in-your-step with the right accessory or in this case the right ‘accessories of your eyes’ to make your night stand out! It’s amazing what a little glitter or shine in the right spot can do! 

Here’s to bringing a little cheeky ADVENTURE into our nights! xMM






Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette In Up Town Girl

Add a sultry, sexy smoke to your eyes while illuminating them with a fresh, youthful glitz. One of my favourite looks this Season is to blend both cool and warm tones together with this Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette. I start by blending the darkest of the greys along the bottom lash line from one corner of the eye to the other. Using the silver-grey shadow (top right) smudge a wash of colour across the entire lid and up into the contour or socket of the eye. To finish, add a gentle highlight to the inner corners of the eyes and the brow bone with the gold -top left. LIGHT UP your eyes with just the right amount of glitter and shine by dabbing the champagne-gold colour (bottom left) into the centre of your eyelid using your finger tip. It’s the perfect amount of shimmer and shine!








Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Copper

I just adore these shadow sticks, not only for their colour selection and delicious, creamy metallic finish but for the fact they bring back fond memories of childhood finger painting. Simply dab the colour straight from the stick along the top and bottom lash lines and blend. No need to fear layering or using more than one shade as the warmth of your fingers does all the talking when it comes to mixing these sheer metallic shades together. It’s as easy as that!






Tom Ford Extreme Mascara

Coloured lashes, as crazy as it sounds, actually looks really cool! Incorporate them into your usual eye makeup routine or wear them loud and proud on their own. The Teal is my favourite when it comes to a subtle hint of colour and the purple, well the purple is simply something else on darker eyes. It gives them the softest hint of colour bringing out hidden shades of green and hazel! They will leave people staring in wonder!





Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill in Sweet Fire

I love these shadows as much for their shimmer as their shade as they simultaneously catch the light in all the right areas while adding depth to the socket and lash line. I recommend you blend the colour across the lash line using an eyeshadow brush, both top and bottom, before blending the creamy colour out using the tip of your finger. While you have the versatility of and convenience of a working with a cream, Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill is water proof and guarantees as 24hr wear. With 10 shades to choose from have you bred side table ready with a good eye makeup remover when you come home from a night of dancing under the stars!





Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

I don’t usually post the whole colour collection of anything but there are just so many fab colours and ways to wear these long wearing, colour stay Urban Decay Eye Pencils. One of my favourite trends this Season is to blend the gold, silver or metallic grey pencil along the top lash line over a bronze toned shadow to give get that fool-proof 3D metallic effect. Urbans Decay’s 24/7 Eye Pencils are a one-stop-shop when it comes to versatility and wear. Whether you’re blending them out for a long wear smoke effect, lining your top lash line for an electric cat eye OR lining the inner rim or water line of your eye to illuminate the colours in your eyes, these long wear, water proof pencils are a dream come true.
