A celebrity make-up artist has revealed the simple six-step guide to getting an eye lift, without painful surgery and the expensive price tag.
Nigit Begum, from London, boasts an international client base after starting her career as a make-up artist in the broadcasting industry.
Having dusted the cheekbones of the likes of Claudia Winkleman and Kirsty Allsopp, she’s discovered a quick fix way to get clients looking bright-eyed for their TV appearances.
Luckily, Nigit says the technique works for an everyday look too, and anyone can recreate the natural eye-lift in just a few steps with products you already own.
Step 1 – Brush your brows
Celebrity make up artist, Nigit Begum, from London, whose clients include Claudia Winkleman, has revealed how you can give yourself a natural eye lift in six simple steps. She is pictured before applying her ‘eye lift’ make up technique
The first step is to brush the brows to discover what the natural eyebrow shape is, as demonstrated on herself
Start with a make-up free face to create a clean base, using a primer after washing your face.
Then brush the brows through, so you can see what your natural eyebrow shape is.
Ideally, use a brow brush, but you can also use unused mascara tester wands.
Step 2 – Tweeze your brows to create an arch
The next step is to give your brows the ultimate shape, creating an upward arch to give the optical illusion your eyes are being pulled up
The next step is to give your brows the ultimate shape, creating an upward arch to give the optical illusion your eyes are being pulled up.
Do this by tweezing any unwanted hair, mainly taking eyebrow hairs off from below the brow.
Create an arch and trim the eyebrow hairs if they’re long, using small eyebrow scissors.
Step 3 – Fill the eyebrows in
Using eyebrow makeup (try HD Brows Eye And Brow Palette by Bombshell) fill in the whole eyebrow, making sure to fill in all the gaps
Using eyebrow makeup (try HD Brows Eye And Brow Palette by Bombshell) fill in the whole eyebrow, making sure to cover all the gaps.
Join the middle part of the eyebrow from the centre to the outer corner, creating a lift from the top.
Then completely fill in the brow with the eyebrow make-up.
Step 4 – Apply a highlighter under the eyebrow
Below the eyebrow, highlight the area with make-up by covering the eyebrow bone and eyelid with a highlighter which will create a bright effect, which lifts the brow up higher.
Next, accentuate the area right below the eyebrow with make-up.
Do this by covering the brow bone and eyelid with a highlighter.
High Brow Glow Brow highlighter by Benefit is great and will create a bright effect, which lifts the brow up higher.
Step 5 – Brush foundation around your brows
Finally add extra definition to your brows by applying foundation around the top part of the eyebrow
Finally, add extra definition to your brows by applying foundation around the top part of the eyebrow.
This creates a nice defined shape to the eyebrow and helps it lift more.
This will also set the whole look.
Step 6 – Add extra brow pencil and define the sides
Finish with filling in the eyebrow again with an eyebrow pencil for the ultimate lifted look. (Nigit is seen following her natural brow lift)
Finish by filling in the eyebrow again – I love the Brow Lift brow pencil by Charlotte Tilbury.
Go back over where you already filled the eyebrow to finish off the shape and ensure that none of the hairs are covered up with foundation.
Focus on filling in the top of the outer edges of your brow to really help lift the eye.
