Best Eye Make-Up


by Ellie Balfe
26th May 2014

Flutter, flick and flirt with the help of these all-stars. Eye, eye captain…

Best Mascara: YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll, €32.50

YSL_MASCARA_VEFC_BABY_DOLL_N_1_?It’s impossible to find a mascara that suits everyone’s expectations; length, volume, curl, definition, hold – However, all of my clients adored this. The brush has lots of little spines, which prevent clumping, and it really bigs up lashes with just two coats.? Zo? Clark

Best Eyeliner: L?Or?al Paris Super Liner Blackbuster, €9.99

LOreal-Superliner-Blackbuster-Intense-Black-187038?Coming from a girl who cannot live without her black liquid liner, this one’s a find. Its black inky finish creates bold, striking eyes; the solid marker-like pen makes it easy to apply; and it lasts the eight hours it promises to.? Kim O?Sullivan

Best Budget Eye Shadow: Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow,??4.49

catrice-liquid-metal-eyeshadow-lafrique-cest-chic?I love the look and feel of these metallic eye shadows. They’re affordable and long-lasting, have punchy pigments, and are great for adding on-trend colours and finishes to your collection for a snip.? Christine Lucignano

Best Eye Shadow: Lanc’me Hypn’se Palette, €27

LANCOME_PALETTE?This collection of shadows includes some of the best shades Lanc’me has offered in decades. Plus, the picture tutorials enclosed show you exactly where to apply them and how to vary it up for day or night. Better still, the magnetic casing means I never lose the brush applicators.? Christine Lucignano

Best Budget Mascara: Maybelline The Rocket Volum? Express Mascara, €11.99

Maybelline_rocket-mascara-black?This adds luscious volume without ever becoming cakey, spiky or spidery, and the brush is genius at coating each and every lash. At a perfect price point, it’s a repeat buy for me.? Dearbhla Keenan

Best Brow Pencil: L?Or?al Paris Super Liner Brow Artist, €8.45

L_Oreal_Paris_Super_Liner_Brow_Artiste_1381762903?Scoring an eyebrow hat trick, this pencil has wax at one end to shape your brows and give the pigments from the pencil at the other end something to grab onto. Brush into shape with the comb on the lid for triumphant arches.? Dearbhla Keenan

Best Brow Thickener: Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara, €7.69

Maybelline-Master-Sleek-Brow-Mascara-Dark-Brown-191496?This product is just shy of perfection! The ball shape on the end of the wand is perfect for defining brows with a light touch, and the finish and pigment level is akin to a luxury product three times the price.? Christine Lucignano
