#BeautyBite with Janine Falcon

By Ally Onyett, May 05


This morning Holt Renfrew hosted their last Twitter Q&A for Beauty Week  with Janine Falcon (@JanineFalcon), the founder of Beauty Geeks. Today's topic - the smudgy eye. We're big fans of this statement look and were thrilled when Janine took to Holt Renfrew's twitter to give us some tips on wearing it best. Here's a round-up of our top five favourite questions and comments from the blogger. 

 

1. Q. I am overhauling my beauty bag and have fair skin/blue eyes. What are my necessities?

    A. For a smudgy eye, try a quad or trio with copper or bronze - your eyes will POP. 

 

 

2. Q. My eyes are green, I've been doing the purple thing forever, what should I try next?

    A. Purple is fab with green eyes - but so is dark blue; indigo or navy.

3. Q. What is the best product so your eye make-up lasts all day?

    A.  Oily lids will benefit from an eye-lid primer - I think Yves Saint Laurent just did one; most lines do!

4. Q. What is the best tool to use to smudge?

    A. Love the Nars make-up brushes; #45 for smudging pencil.

5. Q. How can I pull off the smudgy-eye look during the daytime withough all the drama?

    A. Try colour, not super dark. Blend lavender & violet for a custom hue. Try the Tom Ford quad in Lavendar Lust.
