Eye makeup styles can range from super natural to overly dramatic, depending on the occasion and your mood. It is one area of the face that can be reinvented time after time with creative use of colours and application techniques. However the eyelids and eye contour are a delicate, sensitive area that need specific attention and require that you choose appropriate makeup products so the eyes are enhanced and beautified.
The Eye Area
The eye area is the first area of the face to reveal the signs of aging. When applying make-up, always be sure to apply Phyto Radiance Concealer to the upper and lower eyelids, choosing a shade lighter than the skin tone of the skin. It is advisable to apply it after your foundation and before powder. In addition to instantly covering dark circles and puffiness , it fights against the causes of their appearance, thanks to its care formula that contains moisturizing ingredients, soothing and anti-radical . Its tube has a mouthpiece in high-tech metal for a cold decongestant effect on the eye .
Using an eyeliner allows you to highlight the look of your eyes, making them appear larger and more defined.

To add a sparkly and festive touch to your makeup, choose , a glittery eyeliner that leaves eyes looking beautiful with a metallic shimmer.
Remember to sharpen your eyeliner prior to use. Holding onto your eyelid, trace a line on the rim of the upper eyelid, going from the outer corner of the eye to the center of the eye. Gently taper the line toward the exterior of the eye by making an upward motion. Do the same on the lower eyelid.
If you have difficulty drawing your line, draw it first in small dots or lines, then connect them.
Simply put, lighter eye shadows will help enlarge and brighten the eyes, while darker eye shadows will make eyes looks deeper. For a natural finish, the shade of the eye shadow should either correspond to the color of your iris or be a complementary color. The contrast between the color of your iris and the eye shadow (or the contrast in the shades of these two colors) allows you to highlight your eyes.
For blue eyes, we recommend orange tones. To highlight blue eyes, use brown, golden, apricot, or pink shadows.
For green eyes, the complementary color is red tones so use plums and pink colored shadows.
For brown and black eyes, dark shades are best; opt for coppers, bronzes, and silvery grays. Metallic shades allow you to create a nice contrast to dark eyes with their illuminating effect.
Sisley’s is an impressive line of 20 single shades, so you can easily find the perfect eye shadow for the look you’re going for.
Depending on your desired look, you may opt for matte shades (like Snow, Linen, Velvet, or Ebony), satiny shades (like Vanilla, Sorbet, Sky blue, Toffee, or Black), iridescent shades (like Dune or Graphite), metallic shades (like Garden Rose, Jungle, Quartz, Stardust, Mango, Ultra Violet, Burgundy, or Midnight Blue) or glittery shades like Black Diamond.
Choose a single shade for a natural looking makeup effect, two shades for a gradual effect, or even more shades for a more sophisticated finish.
Using your fingers or the flat side of the blending brush, pick up a light colored eye shadow. Hold your eyelid with one hand and use the other to apply the eye shadow in a tapping motion in the center of the top lid in order (where you want the most color). Then gradually apply the product over the entire top lid, tapering off toward the outer corner of the eye (toward the edge of the eyelashes). Next, if you are going for a smokey look, use a darker shade of eye shadow and apply it in small strokes from the rim of the eyelid upward, with the pointed end of the blending brush. Start from the center of the eyelid, and taper off lightly toward the outer corner of the eye.

Or, you can apply eye shadow to the upper eyelid and Touch just under the eyebrows to attract light.
Mascara is a must-have makeup essential and one that is required to be technologically advanced. We expect it to lengthen, volumise, separate, curl, and color lashes—all while respecting the delicate nature of the eyes. A mascara’s effectiveness rests on its formula, texture, design of the brush and the bottle.
