For your Eyeshape

When it comes to eyeliner, there isn’t a shape that is going to make you look bad, but the way you line your eye can either make the makeup look bad and outdated.

Asymmetrical Eyes: (One is slightly larger than the other) Line the lashline, from the inner corner to the outer corner, increasing the width at the outer corner on the slightly uneven eye only to make it appear wider and even.

Close-Set Eyes: All you need to do for this eyeshape is create an illusion that your eyes are wider apart than they are. Use a concealer on the inner corners to lighten and open up the eye area. Then, on the outer third part of your eye, create a “V” shape using a black liner, and then trace the shape with a jumbo liquid liner to make a thick wing.

Monolids: Extend the Eyeliner/Eyeshadow along the upperlid. Line the lashline from inner to outer corner and stopping where the eye ends. You can also smudge it out at the outer corners, using a small smudger brush.

Wide Eyes : Wide eyes can handle a lot of look, so go bold/dramatic. Using a waterproof black liner pencil, create a tiny “V” in the inner corner of your eye. Then, go over the line with a liquid liner wing it out at the outer corner.

Small Eyes: To widen small eyes, apply a taupe shadow over the eyelid all the way up to the crease. Next, along the lashline, use a black kohl pencil, smudge it with your fingertip and top with a dark brown eye shadow, increasing the amount of shadow at the outer corners.  Lastly, apply a light pink blush using an eyeshadow brush to the upper outer corners of your eyelid, which instantly opens up the eye.

Almond Eyes: To work with almond eyes, line the inner upper and lower lashes with a waterproof kohl pencil the entire way around your eyes, then trace the outer corners of the upper and lower lashlines, smudging it with a smudged brush. Then, top it with a metallic grey shadow to soften it and use bronzer to even out with the crease for a more natural look.

La Voilette, The “Face Veil”

The biggest hair trend to come off the spring runways was the voilette.ee Now, a sheer or mesh black face veil can look superchic and kind of kick-ass. However if you do not know how to wear it well, let’s leave it there.

Worry no more, an exclusive tip from the expert: Milliner Gigi Burris and accessories designer Jennifer Behr, “I think voilettes have a modernity about them” Burris prefers a voilette that hits just above the lips.

“Keep the hair back and somewhat undone so that it doesn’t feel fussy or compete with your voilette. For me, the secret is to keep the hair simple and pulled of the face so it doesn’t look costumey. untitledConfidence is most important when wearing a statement accessory like this.” .

TIP: For a more dramatic look, Behr suggests wearing red lipstick, like we saw at Chanel, gives a veil a casual vibe.
