When it comes to eyeshadow, one of the more favoured techniques is the smokey eye.
To widen your eyes, use a lighter shade in the inner corner and fan outwards with a darker shade.
Hint 1 – Applying the eyeshadow with a brush will give your eyes a transparent look, which is always best.
Hint 2 – A small touch of iridescent powder on your corner of your eyelids will make them look larger, as well as a lighter shade dusted on your brow bones just under the eyebrows.
Hint 3 – An essential component of a smokey eye is creating the v shape on the outer corner of the eye and remember always blend your eyeshadow.
My favourite brushes – Sigma beauty makeup brushes.
I hope this helps.

Happy Easter! I hope you all have had a wonderful day, with lost of love, laughter and food.
I thought I would share with you all my outfit that I wore for my family dinner.
It was quite cold in Melbourne and I was wanting to go for comfort but still something that was dressy and effortless.
I wore my GAP jeans, a white shirt from Zara and Mollini boots that I have had for years. I thought the colour combination really worked. It was dressy but still not over the top for my family dinner.
I went simple with the accessories and just wore earrings from Lovisa.
My makeup was natural but I opted for a dewy finish. I used Australis high lights as a base and used Mac studio finish foundation. I used warm apricot and latte eyeshadows and finished off my eyes with a sleek black cat eye. I finished off the look with Mac Angel lipstick.
This look is very versatile and wearable.
I hope this inspires you to create fabulous looks for any occasion.
Have a great day and stay sweet xoxo

Makeup Tip#1 EYE PENCILS
To find the right pencil for you, test it on the back of your hand to achieve the right texture. If it is too dry, it won’t leave as much colour as you’d like and you could hurt yourself by having to apply it too hard. Pencils that are too soft, will undoubtedly smudge.
Hint 1 – For maximum precision, look for a soft yet firm tip.
Hint 2- For maximun hold, gently stretch and hold your eyelid closed with a finger while applying the pencil across the whole lid.
My favourite is Benefit cosmetics BAD gal liner
