The Perfect Flick: Eyeliner


This season the feeling is very much 1950s meets early 80s with a few sprinkles of 60s Bardot thrown in. It's all about strong make-up. Key elements are eyeliner, contouring and the perfect deep lip. Make a statement and wear it with conviction, show you mean business and knock 'em dead! As long as your application is flawless anything goes - just be bold with the look you choose.

The Perfect Flick
There is a big focus on eyeliner this coming season as seen at Jasper
Conran AW 09. This trend was echoed at many shows and ranged from a gentle flick to a very bold eyeliner /shadow which included the lid as well as the lash line, creating an exaggerated version of the original Audrey Hepburn eyeliner. This homage to the 50s is a much stronger and fiercer shape almost bordering on punk, making it fresh and interesting.

Tools are paramount, so always make sure you have a sable micro fine eyeliner brush in your cosmetic bag before you begin to attempt this make-up and a newly-sharpened black kohl pencil. My favourite is Elizabeth Arden's Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil (priced £16 and available from department stores nationwide)with a tub of Muji’s fine stem cotton buds to hand so that you can correct any mistakes (£2.50, www.muji.com).
