Create eyes to mesmerise this Summer with my “Make Them Stare” tutorial!

Whether you’re coming into Winter or Summer, the end of year party Season is well and truly in full swing! To celebrate, I have put together a step-by-step how to and shopping list of must-have products to accessorise your eyes for a wider, brighter and sexier look!




Every makeup look should always start with curling your lashes. Not only does this make your lashes look longer but it will make your eyes look wider and more awake – even on the tiredest of days. False lashes already have a bend to them so it’s imperative that you curl yours for more of a seamless meshing of the two lashes. Try and get the clamp of the eyelash curler as close to the root of your lash to maximise the effect. Hold for 5 to 10 seconds (depending on how stubborn they’re) and release. TipDon’t be afraid to come back midway through and give them another go if you feel you can get a better curl.






The great thing about the Artémes lashes is that they have a band along the bottom of the lashes giving you a built-in-liner look, but if you want to extend the liner the full length of the eye or create a sexy feline shape, the Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick Liquid Eyeliner is key. Lay the quick drying liner on a 45-degree angle and drag it across the lash line for a rich, all day wear, professional finish, liquid line. TipUse the finely tipped end to fill in any gaps in between the lashes. NOTETo create a feline Flick to your liner click here for a step-by-step guide!


To attract and reflect light into your eyes making them look bigger, brighter and more awake, dab a little of the Seashell Caviar Stick straight off the stick to the inner corners of your eyes, centre of the eyelid and across the highest point of the brow bone. Using the tip of your finger warm and blend the white-gold iridescent cream colour for a seamless finish. Watch as your eyes come to life!




Right before you put lashes on you want to add a little mascara to the root of your lashes. This will help mash the two together. NARS Audacious Mascara is a newbie and fastly becoming one of my favs. The perfectly spaced bristles divide and separate lashes creating a false-like-lash effect, while the formula coats each individual lash giving the illusion of thicker and longer look. Tip; Remember only a little is required when applying to lashes, you just want to help them mesh WITHOUT getting mascara all over your re-usable lashes!





My newfound obsession, Artémes Premium Eyelashes, are made from Mink hair. Each lash is hand crafted by skilled artisans making these lashes some of the softest, most luxurious and durable re-usable lashes on the market. Using a quality lash glue (like DUO Adhesive) apply a fine amount from one end of the lash to the other before applying to your eyes. TipWait a minute or two for the glue to go tacky before applying to the lid. This will help the lashes stick in the exact place you want them. NoteI nearly always have to trim the lashes to fit the eye. Measure the un-glued lashes up against your eyes and trim away from the end or the outer ends of the lashes. Snip away any excess of the built in liner from the inner corners of the lash for a more seamless finish






Take the pressure off applying your Artémes lashes by using their specially designed Lash Applicator. Clamp the lashes in the head of the Applicator so the curve is in sync with the curve of your eyelid. Apply a fine layer of glue the full length of the bottom of the lashes. Give the glue a few minutes to go tacky before appling. Use the tip of the Applicator to push the base of the lashes as close as possible to your natural lashes. Tip; Pull away glue after use and put them back into their case ready for the next wear!
