Lancome Tips

For daytime, give in to the temptation of a fresh, smoky eye pop look:
• Apply a light veil of shade 1 over the whole lid, up to the eyebrow arch.
• Use shades 3, 4 and 6 to create your smoky eye, working from the centre of the upper lid to the outer corner. Blend the shades to create a graduated effect.
• Accentuate the eye by applying shade 8 to the lower lash border.
• Add a touch of light to the inner corner with shade 7.

When night falls, opt for a chic smoky eye:
• Apply shade 7 from the inner corner to the centre of the lid. Apply shades 5 and 6 working from the centre of the lid to the outer corner.
• Add subtle depth to the eye using shade 2 under the eyebrow arch.
• Accentuate the eye by applying shade 8 along the upper
lash border and shade 9 along the lower lash border.
