Step 3 – Line the Eyes
Define the eyes with a soft Khol Eye pencil in black, by drawing it right along the lash line in feathered strokes. Blend and soften with a brush (like the Lancôme Smudge and Liner Brush). This doesn’t have to be very tidy as you are using it for a base which we will then be blending out.
Go over the pencil line with the darkest shade in the palette to soften the black pigment. Top Tip: If you want a more intense look, use this shadow pigment wet which will add a bit more drama. This can also be added later when going from ceremony to party.
Next, take the darker shade along the lash line to add more depth to your eye which will look great in photos.
As with all looks you see on tutorials, make sure you’re adapting it to your eye shape. You can get advice on this at any Lancôme counter, but here are some simple rules to help you. If you have an almond shaped eye (as Helena does - visible socket line, space between her lid and brow) keep the look simple and follow the suggestions above. For hooded eyes, you shouldn’t blend your eye makeup through the socket, and you would keep darker shades right in the outer corners of the eye. For wider set eyes, you could try taking the darker colour closer inwards towards the centre to make the eyes appear closer together.
