Mary Greenwell answers your questions and shows us how to best make up hooded eyes
You asked, and we answered...
A few months ago we asked you all what type of Mary Greenwell makeup videos you would like to see from us at Get The Gloss. Thank you so much for your responses. We took your replies on board and have now created a series of four videos with Mary that hopefully answer many of your questions and makeup queries. In this first one Mary focusses on hooded eyes as well as many of your other queries. The model is Susannah, Editor of Get The Gloss, age 40.
Firstly, to hydrate the skin and combat dryness Mary uses La Solution 10 de CHANEL, £58. Made up from only 10 ingredients, this moisturiser is perfect to soothe and combat any irritation on the skin.
Mary then takes the slightly darker shade and uses this to create an eye socket giving the impression that the bone is higher and the eye being bigger and blends the shadow in to make it look as though it is her real eye. The matte brown shade is then brought under the eye and blended.
Mary then uses the CHANEL Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer in Brun
, £17 and takes it all along the eyelid, feathering out at the ends and then again along the roots of the bottom lashes. She then tightlines the eye, applying it to the inside waterline of the upper lashes to make the eye pop.
Mary keeps Susannah's brows bare after brushing through with the CHANEL Brow/Lash Brush No.11
, £17 to make sure that the eye doesn't look heavier.
To add life back into Susannah's skin, Mary uses the CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi Colour in Duo no.2 Pink (Limited Edition - launches 27th May 2016) and takes the rounded side of the brush and the highlight shade and applies to the top of Susannah's cheekbones to add a subtle shimmer. Then taking the round end of the brush, Mary then applies the pink shade over the apples of Susannah's cheeks and blends in gently.
