Max Made



A Maxmade curated collection of miracle makers that ‘wakes up’ even the tiredest of eyes….

Bigger, brighter, wider and fresher looking eyes are not just a luxury for those of us lucky enough to catch a full eight hours – and lets be honest, who has the time for that? Breathe light and life into tired, dull looking eyes with just the right amount of contour, colour and luminosity that will create a WIDE AWAKE affect!

Fake it till you make it with this eye popping line-up of life changing makeup-bag essentials…

La Mer The Illuminating Eye Gel

If I was to come back as an Eye Cream La Mer’s the Illumination Eye Gel would be it! It’s the b-all and end-all of eye brightening gels I’ve yet to try. There is no time to wait with this little beauty either, you just apply and reap the rewards! Skin is instantly hydrated -care of La Mer’s famous Miracle broth- and the tiny illuminating particulars that float through the weightless gel, melt over the skin like a light defusing gauze. Eyes look instantly youthful, energised and awakened.





Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Do I really need to introduce the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler – I should hope not? No makeup bag or look should ever be without one. They open the eye – even on the tiredest of days- making your eyes look bigger, while making your lashes look longer and thicker! Need I say more?


Becca Cosmetics Under Eye Brightening Corrector

One of the hottest products on the market Becca Cosmetic’s Ender Eye Brightener is the next best thing to 8 hours of sleep. Designed to brighten and counteract the dark pigment that gathers under the eyes when our busy lives get the better of us. TipBlend under the eyes and out and across the top f the cheekbones, before applying a light layer of your -usual- concealer over the top. Unless your striving for a Kardashian FLASHED out makeup look, use sparingly. Either way you’re not going to  believe your eyes!!


Estee Lauder Sculpting Eyeshadow Palette in Defiant Nude

Think of this palette as your bronzer and highlighter for your eyes. Don’t be afraid of all the options, it’s very simple. The bronze colour adds warmth and depth, while the three lighter shades brighten and add luminosity depending on your desired intensity – or how tired you’re looking. The darkest shade is to define your lash line and distract from the dark circles that linger under your eyes. Once you get the feel for it, you will be layering all 5 together come date night!





Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa

I know I keep ranting on about these delicious finger-blending Caviar sticks but they really are just too good to be true. It doesn’t get easier than drawing a single line along your top -or top and bottom- lash line and smudging it in with the tip of your finger. What I love about this particular shade is the intensity of the colour and yet the softness due to it’s creamy radiant finish. It defines the lash line distracting our eye from any darkness that lies under the eyes while brightening the area with its creamy radiant finish!


Mecca Cosmetica Beauty Sleep Artistry Eye Brightener

The ultimate tool in speed, usability and effect when tackling tired, dull, over worked eyes! While the fine nude tip is to remove redness from the inner rim of the eye and brighten and widen the eyes the slightly larger luminous champagne colour is to wash over eyelids and around the inner corners of the eyes to attract and reflect light into the eyes and the eye area. The Mecca Beauty Sleep Eye Brightener is a fool-proof handbag essential in my eyes!



Marc Jacobs O! Mega lash Volumizing Mascara

Va Voom! One of my all-time favourites for volume, Marc Jacobs O! Mega Mascara will undoubtedly  define and thicken your lady-lashes forcing your eyes open in just a few coats. It’s just something about the formula that manages to glide over the lashes coating ever individual lash -without weighing them down- and the beautifully fanned bristles that give you the ultimate separation and intensity every lash deserves. TipFor maximum effect always curl your lashes first! 



it Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Concealer #2

Fill and buff! Or in better words, use the flat brush to apply and do any detail work with your concealer and the soft rounded end to blend and buff your concealer into a seamless finish. Pro-Hygnetic, 100% cruelty free it Cosmetics Airbrush Concealer #2 is one of my favourite tools -next to my fingers of course- when it comes to bringing eyes back to life.



Topshop Glow Stick in Spotlight

One of the industry’s biggest secrets is the use of blush to brighten eyes, disguise dark circles and give you face a general ‘brighten up’. Applied high on the apples of the cheeks and along the top of the cheekbone Topshops Glow Stick in Spotlight is a cream luminizer and blush in one, designed to highlight the face with a wash of radiant colour. The soft peachy colour lifts and brightens the area around the eyes while the luminous particulars attract and reflect light into the eyes for a bright-eyed and bushy tale effect!
