At Cityskin we love all aspect of skincare – from anti-wrinkle treatment and dermal filler to makeup and beauty. Eyebrows are the trend of this year and we thought we would give you 5 easy tips to achieve amazing eyes and brows.
Our model patients had treatment by Mecca Cosmetica in Armadale- thanks to Tina and the wonderful team at Mecca for all their help! Scroll down to read how our models achieved their looks.
How to achieve the look
Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow base layer
Eyeshadow base layer is one of the simplest make-ups to use and helps your eye makeup last all day long.
Product used: Perri Cone MD ‘No Makeup’ eyeshadow
Cost: $31 from Mecca Cosmetica
Tips: To select the right product make sure you match eye colour rather than skin tone
Step 2: Give your eyes depth with eyeshadow
Eyeshadow gives a wonderful depth to the eyes and really makes them stand out.
Product used: Chantelle eyeshadow
Cost: $84 from Mecca Cosmetica
How to apply: After applying the Perricone eyeshadow base, apply the lighter shade with a base brush all over the mobile lid and then apply the darker shade to the crease with a bullet brush using a light windscreen wiper affect. Follow with a blending brush in light circular motions to diffuse the eyeshadow.
Step 3: Sharpen your lash lines
Product used: Stila ‘Smudge Stick’
Cost: $31 from Mecca Cosmetica
How to apply: Use the Stila smudge stick all along the top lash bed right into the inner corner, and 2/3 of the way along the bottom lash line. Use a smudge brush to gently diffuse the liner.
Cityskin’s tip: Select the right product make sure you match eye colour rather than skin tone.
Step 4: Brow pencil to give a fuller look
Product used: ‘Hourglass’ Brow Pencil
Cost: Hourglass brow pencil: $49 from Mecca Cosmetica
How to apply: Twist up pencil slightly and begin to define brows using the wider edge to outline shape. Using the narrow edge, fill in the brows with small strokes for a natural-looking effect. Finish by brushing through brows to blend.
Step 5: Eyebrow mascara. This year’s must have accessory!
Our models used ‘By Terry’ eyebrow mascara to give the final look. This year’s trend is all about fullness so brush the eyebrows upwards to shape them and give a wonderful fuller shape.
Cityskin tips: If you want a more dramatic look then go a shade darker than usual. Brush the brow upwards to give a fuller look.
