It’s time to open your eyes

It’s time to take a bold step with your make-up and stand out from the crowd – they do say the make-up maketh the woman after all.

I’m talking interesting and unique beauty looks people! You know, colours that are another world away from your everyday routine (a dazzling silver line across your lids for work anyone?), or even the complete abandonment of one of your favourite beauty staples, like mascara (only for this specific style of course, we’d never dare to ditch it long-term!).


The latter look made my heart skip a few beats, as I love that something as simple as not painting your lashes can change your entire eye. Try this when getting ready for your next night out: apply your make-up as usual, and pat concealer around your eyes to open them up and even them out, then…drop that mascara! You will look as dreamy as if you’ve just indulged in a completely uninterrupted eight hours of zzz’s. 


My favourite benefit to come out of this rule-breaking bold beauty look is that you won’t have to suffer potential panda eyes the next day – and isn’t that more than enough reason to shake up your make-up?
