Eyes

  • Smudge Chanel Eye Pencil in Black into upper eyelashes to create added depth
  • Chanel Smoky Eyes over entire eye area, creating ‘half-moon’ contour in sockets with the darker shade, and a soft, undefined smokiness underneath with a lighter grey
  • Finish eyes with a line of Ecriture De Chanel on root of upper lashes and ending with slight outward ‘tick’ at each outer corner
  • Finally lashings of Black Exceptionnel Mascara

 

Lips
Wanted to keep Selma’s ‘underground’ chic so plumped them up slightly with Bobbi Browm Blush lipliner and MAC Clear Lipglass
