How To


The smokey eye is a dependable default move when you want to nudge things up a notch. But it’s time for a re-do and we’re putting all our efforts into a new, reverse under-eye smokey look. Why we’re shifting the focus to below the lash line: it makes a great Autumn statement and is super flattering on all eye shapes, especially hooded eyes. How to avoid it looking like last night’s makeup has simply taken a slide? Our MECCA makeup artist says it’s all in the balance; pare the under-eye intensity back with a subtle wash of colour on the lid and a nude matte lip to finish. Learn how to recreate the look with this step-by-step tutorial. If we can, you can.
