The image above shows how round eyes can be enhanced to appear more cat-like with dark eyeshadow to the socket line and eyeliner close to the lash line. False lashes can give a wow effect, especially when applied to just the outer corner of the eyes.

Close Set Eyes

Highlighter used to create the look of wider set eyes. Lighter eyeshadow highlighting under the lower lashes. Darker colour eyeshadow used to fan outwards meeting highlighter which expands the under brow area.

Prominent Eyes

With prominent eyes, its all about under brow bone highlighting to create a contrast with the eyelid area helping to draw your glance upwards. With prominent eyes, its important to have impeccable defined brows.

    Brilliant course. Tutor Leanne was so helpful and friendly and made me feel totally at ease. I was nervous as I have never done any beauty training before and she put me at ease straight away. Brilliant service and I will one hundred percent be using again. Thank you very much!!

    I made a last minute decision to attend the ‘dry manicure and gel polish’ course and so glad I did! The tutor (Donnamarie) was so passionate and inspiring that she gave me the confidence I needed. Everything was well explained and the group was small enough get the best out of the day.
