Even if you’re just a mascara girl the rest of the year, NYE is the one night to try a full-on and fabulous eye. The classic smokey look is always a winner and it’s surprisingly easy to do.
Before you begin, it’s a good idea to gently hold a tissue underneath your eye to stop any dark shadow falling down and spoiling your base. Start by brushing a base colour all over your lid.
2 Blend a dark shade from your palette in a banana shape over your lid from lashes to crease, then smudge it under your lower lashes, too. Blend well – all the edges should be soft and smudgy.
Using a wet brush, use the same dark shade to create a toning eyeliner tight to your upper and lower lash lines. Finish the look with a glamorous pair of false eyelashes – that’s it, you’re ready to go!
