Vogue Super Model Barbara Mullen shares her eye make-up secrets –
Seat yourself comfortably, with your elbows on a firm base for a slow, steady hand.
Have a strong light and self supported mirror. See that your pencils are well pointed, your brushes supple and clean.
For street and daytime make-up : steps 1,2,5 and 6 only.
For the evening: go through all the steps
No other make-up demands such patience and finesse. But none pays such startling rewards.
Step1 -Be sure the eye area is absolutely clean and dry, with no residue of cream.
Step2 -Smooth a veil of eye shadow toward the temple, first a neutral base, then a shade to match your eyes or costume.
Step3 -Pull the skin taut; outline the edges of both lids with, perhaps, a tilt at the outer corner.
Step4 -With a pencil trace a hairline curve on the lid along the top of the eyeball.
Step5 -Take a soft pencil and feather in the eyebrow with short light strokes.
Step6 -Brush mascara over the lashes several times.
Step7 -For enormous eyes trace the rim of the lower lid with a white pencil.
