  DRAMATIC EYES - by Editor
Dark and dramatic eyes look great on any woman, no matter what her complexion. Here's how to get that perfect smoky-eyed look!

  1. Dampen your brush and carefully outline your eyes (up and down) with black power eye shadow.
  2. If you don't have a stark black eye-shadow, you could outline your eyes with a black pencil.
  3. Sweep blackish-grey eye shadow lightly over your eyelids, and blend into the black outline to soften the effect.
  4. Apply a light brown or gold eye shadow on the inside of your eyelids, blending it outwards.
  5. Apply a blue or grey eye pencil on your upper and lower eyelids, over the black outline.
  6. Apply a thin line of black liquid eyeliner, to make your eyes stand out further.
  7. For beautiful lashes, use an eyelash curler to curl them upwards and open your eyes. Hold your lashes gently with the curler for at least 30 seconds, and then apply mascara immediately.
  8. Apply at least two coats of mascara to your eyelashes. When applying mascara, remember to emphasise the roots of your lashes. Hold your brush horizontal and apply mascara to your upper lashes with firm, outward strokes. Apply mascara to the top of your lashes as well, by looking down into a magnifying mirror. When applying mascara to your lower lashes, do so with the tip of your mascara wand, using side to side strokes.
  9. After applying mascara, let it dry and then comb through your lashes so they don't stick together.
  10. Finish off with a sweep of brown eye shadow over your eyebrows. This will give your eyes extra definition. There, you're all set to sizzle!

Coloured Contacts

Invest in a pair of coloured contact lenses. They add depth to the eyes, and the right colour can do wonders for you. In addition, the price of coloured contact lenses has reduced dramatically, and they last for a couple of years, so money shouldn't be a consideration. Yes, if you have perfect vision, you may find looking after contact lenses a hassle, but then again, there's no gain without pain! And if you have an eye number, there's really no reason why you shouldn't get coloured contacts - so if you've been considering buying a pair, go for it!

Dark Circles

Get rid of dark circles. Place a potato slice on each eyelid. Remove it after around ten-fifteen minutes. You could also use cucumber slices.

Conceal dark circles with the help of a concealor. After applying concealor to your undereye area, proceed with foundation application. Finish off with a dusting of compact powder. This ensures that the concealor blends in well.


No matter how perfect your eye make-up, it's just not going to look good if you've got puffy eyes. Here's what you can do to reduce puffiness:

Take a bowl and fill it up with ice cubes and water. Splash this freezing cold water ten times on your face, and another ten times on your eyes. Do this at least a couple of times a week. Not only will your puffiness reduce dramatically, but your face will start glowing as well. (Don't do this if you are prone to broken capillaries.) Follow up with moisturizer and under-eye cream.

Comments:   I suggest using a bronze eyeshadow and then lining the top part of the eye really closes along the lashline with liquid eyelinger, but if she wants a lot of black eyeliner then you can apply it along her bottom lashline, stop midway....hope i helped:)

Comments:   to make your eyelashes longer you should always use an eyelash curley.. like they said above. apply 2 coats of mascara. more than that will cause your lashes to look too clumpy and spidery looking. there is also mascara's out there that add more length and volume to lashes.. brands like covergirl and maybelline. Sonia.. first of all do not wash your face as often as you can or whatever. washing your face too much can cause your skin to produce more oil and therefore...cause you to have a break out. wash your face once in the morning and once at night. always take all your makeup off before you go to bed! that's a biggie. or if you're dead tired just get some kind of gentle cleansing wipes (maybe something from olay or neutrogena) and wipe all your make up off. then cleanse with your daily face wash before you go to bed. i know they say (cleanse,tone,moisturize) but the 2 most important things are to cleanse and moisturize! oh & i also recommend Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash. it gaurantees to make your skin clearer in 3 days. ( i said clearer not clear.) and if you dont like it you can always send it back and get your money back so it's a win win situation. hope i helped!

Comments:   Hmm...I know my mom made my lashes longer by cutting them when I was a baby, so after they grew faster, bigger and ticker. But it's a little dangerous to do and you're not a baby any castor oil is good! I've heard about it too! Drinking water really helps your skin. The more you drink the better. You'll also have less pimples. For dark circles, I know you have to sleep alot (which I often don't do :S) and also taking an ice cube and kind of rubbing it all over your face/under eyes. Makes the skin tighter too. My problem is my nose...It's not really that big..but when I put concealer on it it starts pealing off...I don't have that problem with the rest of my skin. Anyone know what to do about that?
