Wide eyed

Sumptuous two-tone mascara is a new eye opening mascara from Estรฉe Lauder. It comes in range of colours but we thought Madeup should give the black/brown a try!

The idea behind this product is to make your eyes look bigger or more ‘wide eyed’ if you will. One end is a black mascara with a regular sized wand while the other end sports a smaller brush in warm brown for those lower, more delicate lashes.

For my personal tastes the mascara was a little too wet but otherwise it does exactly what it says on the tin. The very action of applying mascara on both the top and the bottom lashes will immediately open up the eye anyway, regardless of the colour. Remember that when reaching for your makeup bag!

I would recommend this to someone who likes a softer look or perhaps for a bride who is looking for a more subtle eye makeup. The brown on the lower lashes provides definition without being too dressy, which is great for daytime. Ladies with a deeper set eye should give this a whirl!

Retailing at ยฃ25.00 it isn’t cheap, but its a twofer!

Remember – try before you buy!

Long Lasting Lippy

We all love a bit of lippy but how do you get it to stay on that bit longer? One glass of wine and it’s gone! As part of our back to basics series, Fran’s done a quick video to show you some handy tips, you’ll need:

– a lip brush
– a lip liner
– your favourite lipstick
– tissues
– pointed cotton buds (if you need to tidy up around the edges)

It might take you a bit longer to apply but using this method will really increase the longevity of your lippy, just make sure your lips are nicely moisturised first. If they’re a bit dry and flaky use a toothbrush to gently buff away the dry skin.

You can pick up a lip brush from Boots or Superdrug, one of my favourite lip brushes is from Estรฉe Lauder as it’s quite flat so good for layering on the lipstick.

If you try this technique, tweet us your pics!
