Precision liner: The eyes have it with this liquid liner look that lasts all night long…
Smack Ibiza say: ‘To get the perfect eye line, we recommend using a gel liner for an edgy, graphic look. Its waterproof base lasts all night – perfect for a closing party… and the after party! Use a small amount on a super fine brush and start at the outer edge of your eye, sweeping the liner to the inner corners. We used Bobbi Brown ‘Black Ink’ Gel Liner.’
Smack Ibiza say: ‘For the best bright nails, always use a base coat to protect the nail and prevent staining. When applying the varnish, avoid painting right up to the cuticle as this causes the colour to flood, leave a small gap to ensure a neat and tidy finish.’
Smack Ibiza say: ‘MAC pigments are great for creating this shimmering, golden bronze look – we love their texture and intensity of colour. For a look like this, blend a few tonal colours together (gold/brown/copper) and create soft metallic textures or use dark shades for a smokey eye. Add clear lipgloss to a pigment to create a metallic gloss or crazy colour gloss. Just add fat lashes for ultra impact – these complete an evening makeup and don’t have to be too dramatic (unless you want them to be!). Shu Umeura have a range of lashes to suit anyone’s taste. Before applying measure the lash against yours to see if it needs to be cut to fit across your eyelid. Apply a thin strip of eyelash glue to the lash and allow 15-30 seconds for it to become ‘tacky’ before applying.’
Barely there: Accentuate your natural assets with baby doll lashes and a perfect complexion.
Smack Ibiza say: ‘For a perfect complexion, it’s all about creating the freshest base – we always prep skin before makeup using REN Bio-active Skin Care. Their ‘Hydra Calm’ range is great for all skin types especially in hot climates. The add Illamasqua – Satin Primer for an all over even tone.’
Smack Ibiza say: ‘Our summer colour of choice is bright turquoise, like this ‘Once in a Blue Moose’ nail polish by Lime Crime. Jazz your manicure up with a bold stripe down the centre – you just need a steady hand (or a handy friend!) to ensure the stripe is ultra-precise.’
Smack Ibiza say: ‘For impact and longevity in lips, stick to matte colours. Its a good idea to stain the lips beforehand with a liner of the lip colour of your choice. This summer lip colour has gone crazy and we’ve been loving Lime Crime opaque lipsticks. For eyes, we love colours! Pink Bronze for eyes or cheeks, Melon for eyes or highlighter, Vanilla for highlighter and the amazing Teal Blue for the eyes.You can use them in many different ways – you can even add water and create a solid colour over the eyelid.’
Smack Ibiza say: ‘Yes! Real girls can wear blue lips – there is a blue lip for everyone! A bright blue or dark blue lip with the right outfit is all a girl needs to make a major statement with her make-up and we’ve done quite a few of them this year. We like to keep it interesting by going two-tone.’
