For your eyes only: Find out what eye shadow colour will make you look years younger!

One of the best ways to look younger and more vibrant as we get older, is to be sure to wear colours that flatter us. This doesn’t only apply to our clothes and accessories but to our eye make-up as well!

Where choosing the correct eye colour to enhance our eyes may once have been a bit of a gamble, now it will be easy when you follow these fantastic tips:

  • The key is to give your eyes some definition – groomed brows, luxurious lashes, and some colour on the lids. Give more definition to the upper eye line than the lower eye line.
  • Avoid anything with a red undertone as it will make your eyes look sore and tired.
  • There will probably be a shade of purple that will suit you!
  • Avoid anything with lots of shimmer.
  • No harsh lines, go softly and blend well.
