The Eyes Have it

Alexander McQueen 07/08

Cleopatra style eye makeup - super intense but if done properly and subtly can be timeless.  It's all about practice and a steady hand, not rushing and applying liquid eyeliner slowly as you build confidence with it. 

I have never used a gel or creme eyeliner before but i'd imagine they'd work really well with an angled brush, and it can be good to draw a line to follow with a pencil eyeliner first.  If you're really brave or going to a costume themed evening you could even try the eyebrow, a wig, headdress and a snake.  That would surely be a fun night!
