Dramatic eyes are big this Spring Summer 2013, making a change from strong, red lips which was such a strong trend last summer. One easy and effective way to achieve this look is by simply using a kohl eye liner pencil. The obvious choice of pencil colour is black, but you can indeed try different colours and see which works best with your colouring. I checked out the new Colour & Kohl Eyeliner from Miners, which come in four really lovely shades: brown, gold, blue (slightly lighter that the classic electric blue that is so eighties) and, of course, black. You can use it as an eye liner alone or smudge it to frame the eyes and create that full on kohl look. You can also flick the ends to add a hint of lift to the eyelid. Just rim the bottom waterline and press the eyeliner pencil between the top eyelashes. As well as creating definition, using a coloured pencil will also add some colour to your make-up – the mid blue shade being a particularly hot shade this summer. And remember to always have a pencil sharpener to hand as a blunt pencil won’t do the job. Time to have some fun and experiment!
The new Colour & Kohl Eyeliner from Miners is available in Brown, black, blue, gold priced at £1.99. For more information go to www.minerscosmetics.co.uk.
