I was very lucky to get a sneaky peak of Rimmel’s AW/13 make-up collection this week and there are some gorgeous products coming your way…just not yet!
Now, you know I don’t like talking about products that you can’t buy now, but I thought you’d like to know Miss T’s top picks from the new collection, including a good black eye liner that’s already in the shops.
Because, erm, she’s a bit of a make-up magpie, as soon as I walked in the front door with the bag of not-in-the-shops-yet-make-up – Miss T had delved in to check out the goodies.
She’s been asking me for ages to show her how to do a simple smoky eye, so it’s no surprise that she pulled out these products:
Rimmel Glameyes HD Eye Shadow in Golden Eye, £6.99 available from 2nd October
Rimmel Retro Glam Extreme Black Mascara, £6.99 available from 2nd October
And I, yes I, who is not a make-up artist, showed Miss T how to use the products. Firstly I used the eye shadow palette and swept the silver over the whole of Miss T’s eyelid, then I blended in the lighter grey shadow over the lower eyelid before popping the gold in the inner eye corners.
I finished the look by drawing a line of the black shadow stick along the upper and lower lash lines, smudged with a brush so it didn’t look too harsh and coated curled lashes with mascara.
Miss T really liked the look and I have to say the new HD Eye Shadow palettes are brilliant with wearable colours and an amazing pigment payoff – there’s even application instructions on the back so teen queens everywhere can create their own smoky eyes! Are. You. Listening. Miss T?
