Follow the Lancôme Tips to get your own look :
Apply to entire eyelid to even out skin tone, make the eyes look bigger and/or light up the brow bone. Blend outwards for an eye-opening effect. Make-up artist tip: these light colours bring out the intensity of your mascara for enhanced lashes.
2. Chic & Sophisticated
Violet plum, amber or turquoise highlight eye colour intensity. Apply in one stroke for a subtle daytime look or more intensely for evening. Colours: Lagon Secret; Cuban Light; and Bleu Précieux.
Blend over entire eyelid and/or apply a darker shade to the outer corner to intensify. Make-up artist tip: light up the brow bone and inner corner of the eye with a pale shade to create a contrast.
4. Deep & Glamorous
More intense shades create bold glamour. Emerald, deep violet and chocolate create a smoky look. Colours: Strass Black; Erika F; and Violet Divin.
Trace the eye contour to create an eyeliner effect and/or blend a light shade over the entire eyelid, to the darkest shade along the row of lashes for a smoky eye effect. Make-up artist tip: give more depth by applying black kohl to the inner eyelid rim.
