Eyecare Equipment Kit
Creating beautiful eyes means choosing the right types of product - here's what you will need.
Matt Powder Eyeshadows
Perfect for naturals and brights, matt powders suit everybody. For a deeper calour, apply them with a damp brush.
These add glamour to eyes but are better suited to younger skin, as any specks falling into fine lines and wrinkles will highlight the problem.
Quick and easy to use, but can wear off quickly. Apply a little translucent powder underneath to help set them. Creams aren't ideal for older eyes as they may disappear into folds and lines.
These plump out the lashes from root to tip, creating a wider looking lash.
These work by adding fibres to the tips of the lashes, making them longer
These shrink on the lashes, giving them a natural curl.
Great for beach days or weddings, but they can be drying. Removing them is a chore too, so they shouldn't be worn every day.
Used to line under and above the eyes, these should be soft and smudgy to ensure you don't need to scrub at the eyes when applying.
These may need a steady hand to apply, but nothing says sexy eyes better.
Most of us ignore our eyebrows but they really define the face. Brow gel helps keep them in shape.
Eye make-up remover
It's essential to remove eye make-up with a specialist remover. Try to find one that's oil-free.
A flat centimeter-wide eyeshadow brush is great for applying soft-looking shadow. A short handle gives more control and helps stop flecks falling on your cheeks.
For more intense looks, sponge applicators give a greater depth of colour. Choose one with a soft foam tip and a short handle.
If you want to apply mascara without clumping, an eyelash comb is a must. Use it while lashes are still wet. You can buy metal eyelash combs, but plastic is safer because it isn't as sharp. And always brush downwards to lessen the risk of scratching your eyes.
Curling eyelashes will help make your eyes look wider and brighter. Metal curlers are better than plastic, you should replace your curlers (or at least the pad that touches the eyelid) every six months.
These are a great way to get Instant glamour. Full sets are much easier to apply than individual lashes.
