Summer is coming and you've spent a fortune on a whole new wardrobe. But no look is complete without dazzling eyes that last throughout the day! That's why we have put together some eye make-up tips for a gorgeous, glamorous look that will make you shine in the sun this summer.
For those of us who want to try something new, there are ways you can enhance the natural beauty of your eyes without spending hours in front of a mirror. After all, you want to make the most of the warmer weather!!
Adding Extra Definition to Your Eyes with 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® Brand Contact Lenses
1 million women in the UK would like to try a lens that enhances their eyes*. Coloured contact lenses are increasingly popular, but they can sometimes look unnatural. 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® enhances your eyes to provide a natural looking change that is subtle but noticeable. It comes in two variations - NATURAL SPARKLE™ and NATURAL SHIMMER™. Depending on your eye colour, each type of lens can give you a different look whilst still correcting your vision.
NATURAL SPARKLE™ creates a luminous, brightening effect for lighter eyes, with heightened contrast. For medium eyes, such as green, these lenses provide slightly softer highlights for added dimension. If you have dark eyes, you can expect lighter contrasting with more subtle brightening.
NATURAL SHIMMER™ provides depth and intensity. For light eyes, they add sharpness and medium eyes are given added depth. If your eyes are dark, the highlights and contrasting are again, more subtle.
By adding definition to your iris, both variations of lenses will make your eyes shine and grab attention. In fact, 94% of women who tried them said they made their eyes look more attractive, striking and beautiful†.
Remember: Always insert your lenses before you start applying your makeup
How Do I Achieve Beautiful Eyebrows?
Adding definition to your eyebrows is a simple way to open up your eyes and make you look more youthful. Combined with the brightening effect of 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE®, your framed eyes will sparkle.
Step 1: Fill out any sparse areas lightly with an eyebrow pencil and make sure to follow your natural arch.
Step 2: Tweeze any unwanted hairs that fall above or below the pencil guidelines. Make sure you step back from the mirror occasionally to check your progress and avoid over plucking.
Step 3: Once you have tidied up your brows and filled them in with your pencil, it's recommended that you set them with a gel. That way, you can feel confident that the look lasts the entire day.
How Do I Apply Striking Smoky Eyeshadow?
The smoky eye look will draw attention to your beautifully defined eyebrows and the alluring brightness of your 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® enhanced eyes. Typically, smoky eyes consist of blacks and greys, but if you want to make a statement this summer, you could experiment with brighter colours.
Step 1: Choose three shades of a similar hue and apply the lightest colour to your brow bone and inner corners.
Step 2: Cover your eyelid with the medium shade and apply the darkest colour to the outer corner. Blend the three colours together to avoid any harsh divides.
Step 3: Apply your mascara and eyeliner to complete the look. If you have smaller eyes, wearing white eyeliner on the waterline is a great way to make small eyes look bigger.
To complete your look with 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® visit your Optician who can advise whether they’re a suitable fit. If you’re a Lenstore customer, you can get a free eye test and contact lens fitting at any UK Vision Express store.
