Beauty Jargon Buster
Autumn has arrived marked by the recent return of X Factor to our screens. Thanks to a weekly fix of Cheryl, we’re not only envious of her wardrobe and perfectly quaffed locks, but also of her smoldering eye make-up.
Meadowhall’s Fashion and Beauty Adviser, Bethanie Lunn tells us which products to shop for at the Centre to recreate Cheryl-inspired eyes without breaking the bank:
The Eye Shadow
The eye shadow will be the base to your smoky eyes so choose a dark and dramatic colour on your lower lids and outer corners such as charcoal grey or navy blue and line lashes with jet black shadow. Open eyes up by using a shimmering white in the inner corners.
<< L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Quad in Velous Noir – £7.99 from Boots or splash out on MAC (£17.99) which can be found in Debenhams.
The Eye Liner
You need a kohl based eye liner to create that got-to-have gaze; one that can be smudged and blurred until you are content that you can smolder as well as Cheryl’s!
<<Illamasqua Eye Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E – £15 available from Debenhams
Mascara is the final must. Go for black and layer it up until your lashes look fanned and thick with serious volume.
The Body Shop Super Volume Mascara – £10
Pair your smoky eyes with strong brows and pale lips to finish off the look and have your friends begging you for your eye make-up secrets!
