I thought I’d share my top five secret tricks of the trade and personal favourite tips.

1. Lipcote is a girls best friend.. just not for lips!

If you’ve ever tried Lipcote, that clear sealant that’s supposed to keep your lipstick in place, you’ll probably not have been very impressed with it. I know I wasn’t. But I bet you didn’t know that it actually has some rather fab other uses instead! If you mix a drop or two with some loose eyeshadow or eye pigments, it turns into a fantastic liquid eyeliner that stays put all day. Sound familiar? Yep, it’s one of the selling points of Benefit’s She-Laq. And a fifth of the price! What’s more they now do a glitter version (called Glitzy) in six different colours to really make your colours sparkle!

  2. Line before you colour
If you don’t like an obvious liner but want eye definition, or aren’t very good at doing straight lines, then apply your black liner before the rest of your eye look. You can work the colour right down into the roots of your lashes without worrying if you’re going a bit wonky, because when you put your eyeshadow on top it will cover any mistakes whilst leaving the eyes well defined.
