For me there isn’t often an occasion when I don’t prefer to wear a really natural looking eye look, even when I’m going out on date night or with the girls. A natural looking eye area is by far my favourite look but when I do go out for a special occasion, it’s always really great to make the look that bit extra special.
For me this will always entail making sure that my eyebrows are that little more defined and that my lashes have a little added extra ‘va va voom’. These two components for me make a natural look that bit more glam and perfect for date night!
This look I’ve created uses both techniques and I think it looks really lovely. For ensuring my eyebrows are tidy and defined, I used the Kiss Beautiful Brow Kit, available at Asda, which has everything you need to create the perfect brow area. The kit consists of 2 colours for the brow, a highlighter, wax, razor and 4 eyebrow stencils. My eyebrows have quite a distinctive shape anyway, but this kit is perfect if you want a slightly different look or if you need a helping hand with any kind of shape at all.
I really like the highlighter too which is great when added under the arch of the eyebrow and can also be dabbed onto the inner corner of the eye, to make it appear more open. The wax is is also perfect for setting any unruly hairs. It’s a pretty nifty little kit really!
For the eyes I applied a light cream shadow over the entire lid, a mid brown shade on the outer corner and crease, blending lots and then a lighter shade on the inner corner. This created a really subtle smoky eye effect and then when I applied some Kiss True Volume lashes in Posh, available at Boots, it gave this natural eye look the added ‘va va voom’ I was after.
Made from 100% natural hair, these lashes are super light and flexible and look really beautifully natural as the ends are tapered. I applied these to this look without any added eyeliner, as I feel that eye liner can take away the natural side of this look and also, the natural black edge of the eyelashes make it look like a thin line of liner has been applied anyway. Perfect!
I really love how these two products have turned a natural day look into a natural evening look really simply and I think with great effect. Being that both products probably only take 5/10 mins to perfect, this could be a great way to go from day to night after work for example too.
Do you love a natural look for a night out or do you prefer the heavy liner & lip look? Teamed with my Kiss nails, I think I’ll be feeling really glamorous come our anniversary date night!
