EYELINER BASE

Apply our Eye Pencil in SOPHIE on the lid to create a deepened base for the first Iconic Chrome. Blend the Eye Pencil with our Eye Shadow Blending Brush to avoid any harsh lines. Finish by adding the Eye Pencil in SOPHIE to the lower lash line, using the Smoulder Brush to prepare for a smoky lower liner.

 

ICONIC CHROME: PASSIONATE

Using our flat Concealer Brush, apply the fiery red Iconic Chrome in the shade Passionate all over the lid and up to the crease. Blend this shade out just above the crease to create a seamless, blown out eye shadow.

 

ICONIC CHROME: AVANT GARDE

ICONIC CHROME: AVANT GARDE

Using a clean flat Concealer Brush apply the gold Iconic Chrome in the shade Avant Garde to the centre of the lid to create a spotlight eye look. Press this in with your finger to warm up the product and blend the edges, keeping the product focused on the centre of the lid.

 

The Iconic Chromes are a beautiful and unique formula of shadow delivering intense colour pay off…

SMOKY LINER AND LASHES

SMOKY LINER

Apply our Powder Eye Shadow in Obsidian to the lower lash line and blend out with the Smoulder Brush to create the smoky lower liner. This will accentuate the colour of the eyes and tie the look together, keeping a focus on the metallic chrome colour.

 

LASHES

Apply a generous coat of our Masquara in Raven to the top and bottom lashes for lift, volume and definition. Add lashes of your choice to complete the spotlight eye. For this look we would recommend the style Desire, the perfect wispy lashes that elongate the eyes.

 

THE FINISHING TOUCHES

BRIGHTEN AND CONCEAL

Use a touch of our Skin Base Concealer Pen to lift and brighten the under eye to clean up any fall-out and conceal any dark circles or pigmentation. Blend this into the foundation with our Eye Shadow Blending Brush for a flawless finish.

 

KEEP IT NUDE

Use our super nude Lipstick in the shade Rosepout. This will give a healthy flush of colour to the lips, but help to keep a focus on the colourful spotlight eye look you just created.
