TRICK #1: LINE YOUR WATERLINE
All those with a passion for beauty will have heard of the benefits of lining your bottom waterline with white or even nude eyeliner. This little trick of the trade gives your eyes the appearance of being more awake and creates the illusion of big beautiful peepers. However instead of splashing the cash, save your money and make use of the lightest shade in your eyeshadow palette. Using a flat-sided eyeshadow brush gently tap one side into your eyeshadow then carefully press it along your waterline.
TRICK #2: FILL IN YOUR BROWS
The Clarins The Essential Eye Makeup Palette features beautifully pigmented shades and none more so than the warm chocolaty brown tones which are perfect for those looking to fill in sparse brows. It’s essential for the shadow to be matte as a satin or pearlescent shade will ensure a shimmery brow and draw unwanted attention to any imperfections. Apply using a flat eyeshadow brush and lightly feather it along your eyebrow, filling in gaps as you go. Who needs an eyebrow pencil?

TRICK #3: DEFINE YOUR EYES
The beautiful darker hues of brown and black in your palette are not only the perfect shades for a smoky eye but they can also multi task as a liner to define your eyes. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, tap it into the darker shade and trace the brush gently across your upper lash line. Carefully use the brush to blend the colour and then apply your eyeshadow of choice as normal.
