How to achieve this season's look

 

 - How to achieve this season's look
If you have always found this look quite tricky try it with a kohl pencil rather than a liquid liner. I tend to jump straight in at the deep end and start with the actual flick, first drawing a 'guideline' from the outer corner of the eye in an upward sweep toward the temple. If you do this with your eye gently closed you can actually feel the natural contour with the pencil and you are less likely to make a mistake. If your angle/line goes awry, just dip your cotton bud in some eye make-up remover and start again.

Once you have established the angle and the length of your flick, take the pencil to the inner corner of your eye (closest to your nose) and continue across the middle of the lash line along to your flick (outer corner). If you wish to make this bolder, make the line much thicker on the lid rather than close to the lash line in an arch. But remember to taper the color in the inner corner of the eye as you reach the outer flick (your eyeliner brush is essential here), as this makes the shape more refined. Try Screen Face Sable eyeliner brush (£7.78 www.screenface.com).
