THE ‘IT’ FLICK:
– Make-up artist Athena calls it an ‘instant facelift’ – which may be why flicked eyeliner has proved such a hit with celebs and PLUs* (People Like Us) alike!
This season’s ‘It’ flick is part smokey-eye, part flick – and all achievable in a matter of minutes. WATCH how to master the quick flick in our video above!
Make up Masterclass: Get #PartyReady in 3 easy steps
1] Opt for a slanted brush for a more dramatic flick. £5.99 Maybelline’s MasterGraphic Eyeliner in Black is great, and has a quick-dry long-lasting formula to help stop smudging.
2] Athena says: ‘Start lining the eyelid wherever feels comfortable, the trick is simply in the flick: The more dramatic the upwards flick, the more eyes are lifted.’
3] She reveals: ‘The thicker the flick, the easier it actually is to master in a hurry. Do stock up on cotton buds and £4.50 Bioderma Sensibio H20 to mop up mistakes though, really it’s all about practice.’
Know your Shape
TOP TIP: Athena says, ‘KNOW YOUR EYE SHAPE!’ The rounder your eyes, the thicker your liner can go – but keep the flick short. Almond-shapes should stick to a thinner but longer line to accentuate the natural length of the eye.
