    Black liquid eyeliner and flick it out past the end of the lashes (towards the ear :p)

    She looks REALLY airbrushed on that picture. Ridiculously so.

    :yes: I actually think she looks more like Ms Halliwell in her mega skinny days than herself there. Sorry Bunnie nothing helpful to add about the make-up - but I think you could easily pull it off. :)

    :D

    As for the eye make-up, I'd use a black liquid liner on the top eyelid, black kohl on the outer two thirds of the bottom of the eye and get a charcoal eyeshadow to fill in the rest as much as you please as it's a lot easier to work with and less fiddly. Though to get that kind of look pretty much anyone would need falsh lashes, too, and shitloads of mascara. Basically just trial and error that stands between sexy, smokey 60s eyes and panda-chic :razz:

    yeah its panda/kiss chic im not really going for. I suppose I could experiment. False eyelashes I hadnt thought of, they seem rather fiddly, I might just get the individual ones from the beauticians...Im due a pamper!! :D Cheers big ears
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    A strip of falsies is much easier than the individual ones, honest! I haven't used them in a while but I used "Cosmo" (yes, as in the magazine) ones a few times and they were self-adhesive and an absolute piece of cake. I used to draw a line along the top of my lashes with liquid eyeliner as a guide, wait for it to dry, whack 'em on and then go over it again. Easy peasy :thumb:

    Experiment! Sure you'll look fab :flirt:

    Thank you very much my dear...Im planning this look for my next proper night out, whenever that may be. But seeing as these buggering exams will be over hopefully soon. So I shall let you know how it goes soon enough. :)

    Don't do it bunnie! You are better than that. Racoons aren't sexy and they eat garbage.

    I rock at helping others.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I think she loooks pretty good in that pic actually, and I didn't think she looked awfully airbrushed either, infact, I thought they'd done quite a good job to keep it fairly natural looking. Certainly doesn't look anywhere near as hideously airbrushed as magazine models and the like. Ho hum.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Experiment. That's all I can say.

    No one can 'teach' you over the internet how to apply makeup. It's either being shown in real life or having a go yourself and messing around and see what works and what doesn't.
    Sure, there's a logical way to apply smoky eyes, but it's much better and easier if you have a go at it anyway. Get some kohl, black eyeshadow, mascara and see what you come up with.

    Oh, and use proper brushes, not the crappy sponge applicators. Brushes make the makeup.

    Emma Bunton is a fine example of somebody who got better as she got older :)

    she looked great in strictly come dancing.

    i think it's good to experiment but i say not with the whole look 'cause chances are you won't be able to create the exact same thing again!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I think she's grown into her looks and I admire her as she doesn't believe she needs to be mega skinny.

    Can I just ask, is kohl just eyeliner?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yep, there's 2 types, Kajahl and Kohl. I'm not totally sure what the difference between them actually is (or if there's a difference at all!) but I always go for Kohl which seems to smudge really easily.

    She has never looked more fuckable than she does on the cover of her new album. That pose... *drools*

    Ooh dear, look what I have started. But thanks guys for the advice, muchly appreciated! :thumb:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Come see me with your false eyelashes and eyeliner, we'll have a bash over a cup of tea,and see what horrendous attempts we can come up with ;)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm doing something similar for a devils and angels party tonight, and I agree with Briggi about the balance of Kohl and liquid. I'm using a three-tone eye shadow, too, so I've got pale greys as well as charcoal.

    I do keep messing it up if I don't spend hours and concentrate really hard... But then, I'm not very good at makeup!
