Try a Trend...Bright Eyes

The A/W 10 catwalks were awash with fluoro eyes. From monotone neons to clashing brights, eyes are taking centre stage this season. And the great thing about this trend is it doesn't have to look pin-neat. It's all about achieving that heavy-handed, finger-painted look.

The Mac shadows are actually this bright
It's important to keep the rest of your face neutral - a dewy foundation, groomed brows and natural lips are just the ticket.  I applied Mac FluidLine in Blue Peep, £12.50 (this is actually a gel liner but the texture works really well for this look) along the crease of the eye using my index finger, out towards the hairline. Next using my middle finger, I swept Mac Eyeshadow in Atlantic Blue, £11 along the lower lashline, running parallel to the cyan streak. Finish with a slick of black mascara.

I just used the brightest eyeshadows I had lying around but any shadows with a decent level of pigment will work. At £4.50, Barry M Dazzle Dusts (Superdrug) are a great high street alternative and come in an array of rainbow shades.

BEAUTY TIP...To make any shadow brighter, simply dip your brush in water before applying the colour. Sx
