MAGIC STEP 1: Line your upper lash line!

Take my Rock ‘n’ Kohl eyeliner in Bedroom Black and apply it to your upper eyelid, starting from the inner corner of your upper eyelid and staying as close to your lash line as possible! Don’t be afraid to build up the thickness of your eyeliner and always make sure your pencil is sharp before using it for the best beauty results!

MAGIC STEP 2: Create a straight flick!

Next, when you reach two-thirds across your lash-line, extend and lift the line upwards and outwards in a straight, non-curved wing at the outer corner to create the signature Tilbury feline flick shape, which will further elongate your gorgeous eyes! If you want to create an eyeliner look without a wing, simply distribute your eyeliner evenly along your lashes, blending and smudging using my Eye Smudger Brush for a dreamy, diffused finish.

MAGIC STEP 3: Open and enhance the look of your eyes with nude eyeliner!

Using the nude shade from my Super Nudes Liner Duo, and apply it along your lower lash line, gliding the pencil along your waterline into your inner corners to make your eyes appear brighter and more wide awake! This tip is particularly great if you have smaller almond-shaped eyes.

MAGIC STEP 4: Create a Hollywood flutter!

Put the perfect finish on your almond eyes with my Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara, applying lashings of it to your top and bottom lash lines for long-wear volume and a wide-awake look!
