Eyeliner Featured


While beauty trends for skin have been focussed on radiance, health and luminosity; eyes and lips have vamped it up to define and emphasise, using heavy metal shadows and eye-popping mascara.With a subtle face base and lightly pink cheeks; Fall gives us the perfect chance to experiment on our eyes and lips to get flutteringly gorgeous lashes for the party season!


Black eyeliner has always been used to define the eyes and take make-up from the day to night-time chic. This autumn however, as seen at Roberto Cavalli and Victoria Beckham, eyeliner has been reversed to appear on the waterline; giving a fresh, modern twist to the classic beauty look.

Taking the liner onto the waterline, which is the area between the bottom lashes and the eye, can give a beautifully defined and contemporary evening look. Using a brush, smudge the liner outwards underneath to blur the harsh lines and leave a soft, but sharp look.

Complete with a shimmering metallic shadow to finish the reverse smoky effect, and get party perfect eyes!

#LFLoves Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Eye Definers – Starlit Black

Most eyeliners have been developed to avoid smudging, and creating the perfect cat-eye flick. This eyeliner however, is the complete opposite, which is why we love it for the reverse smoky effect! The creamy texture of the pencil ensures that the liner glides on smoothly and effortlessly, lasting up to 10 hours. With a unique smudging tool on the opposite end of the pencil, it has been created to achieve a softer but well defined look.

Simply take the eyelinerand draw a line on the waterline. Then, taking the opposite end, smudge the liner in small circles to buff the product out and leave a beautiful finish behind.

Complete this look with one of our favourite shadows, the Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in Silver Sky. There are 6 different shadows, formulated into creamy textures for easy application. Simply take the shade suitable for your skin tone, going from palest to darkest, and blend from the corner of your eye outwards into the liner, to give a gorgeously shimmering finish!


No eye make-up is complete without a flick of mascara for the ultimate beautiful look! For heavier eyes, look to a black mascara that will help to curl and volumise your lashes; adding definition to achieve a dramatic look.


Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara in Very Black is the perfect mascara for Fall! With a uniquely shaped wand to curl and lengthen the lashes, coating each one individually to give a fluttery effect, the mascara works impeccably; lasting all day and night without smudging. Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara in Black is another star product which has long lasting hold and adds volume and definition to each lash, leaving them feathery and clump free!

For extra volume, you can add false lashes to give a more dramatic effect. Make sure to go for lashes which look quite natural so your eyes still look beautiful and not overly defined. Here at Look Fantastic Beauty HQ, we love Eylure Enchanted False Lashes in Charm. Inspired by elegant princesses, the lashes are suitable for all eye shapes, adding volume and density to leave your lashes luscious and long!

Top tip | Before applying mascara, make sure to use an eyelash curler to volumise your lashes; this gives your lashes great curl before applying product, so you get double the definition! Tweezerman Deluxe Classic Eyelash Curler is a beautiful jewelled gold colour (perfect for autumn!) and creates incredibly curled and separated lashes so they flutter all day!
