This timeless makeup look knows no age limits!
A smudged eyeliner look is one you’ll reach for time and time again, but if you’re hesitant to try it in your forties or older, celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has good news for you. “This smoky eyeliner looks great on everyone from Kate Moss to my mother” declares Tilbury. Here, she talks us through how to get a sultry smudged eyeliner look and how to make it work for you – at any age.
Line the eyes with black pencil, sticking as close to the lash line as possible to give the illusion of denser lashes. For a seriously sexy look, go ahead and line the inner rims, too. We like Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil.
Dip a smudging brush (we recommend Zoeva Smudger 226) into a brown eyeshadow and “go backwards and forwards, like a windscreen-wiper, over the line to soften and make it more smoky”. Do this underneath, too.
