Anxious about taking the DIY beauty route? Don't be - our expert team have spilled their top five tips for creating enticing eyes.

Eye pencil or liquid liner? Answer: both! First, apply liner to your upper eyelid. Layer liquid over the top for added intensity.

Shadow Show

Precision comes down to your tools. 'For flawless eyeshadow, there are only two key brushes: one circular shaped to apply shadow, and one more oval for blending,' says Yves Saint Laurent's Karen Barlow.

Twinkle In Your Eye

'Inner-corner eye shimmer can look super pretty or slightly sci-fi,' says Bobbi Brown's Sarah Lee Russell. 'For the most flattering brightening effect, use a shimmer two or three shades lighter than your skin.'

Eye Do

Before you layer lashings of mascara, makeup artist Leisa Welch recommends having a brush on hand, 'Brush out any lumps as soon as you see them, well before the mascara has a chance to dry.'

Brush Play

'Coat the top of the lash by pulling the mascara downwards, then apply from the underside, pulling the lashes up,' says MAC's Amber D. Wiggling the brush as you bring it up will ensure every lash is well covered.
