Make up artists often use vaseline or MAC lipglass over the eyes to give more definition and depth. It works a treat if you dab on a teeny bit onto your eyes before you go out – you feel like you have done massive make up with zero effort. Eyecreams are usually metallic and not glossy – as in glass see through. MAC are now launching eye glosses next season – so excited! I know from experience it is hard to develop a product which has staying power on the skin, yet has gloss appeal. Can’t wait to try these when they come out later this year.

KOHL – كوهلدوست
I love LOVE LOVE LOVE KOHL as it gives that dark smokey look, who knew it has been around for centuries?

On a recent visit to the Bait Al Zubair museum  in Muscat, Oman I was delighted with the history of kohl. Kohl has been used for centuries in Arabia to protect eyes from the harmful rays of sunlight. The kohl powder is applied with a little stick around the edges of the eyes on babies, women and men to protect them from the harsh sunlight in the desert. Lots of versions were being sold in the souk. For AW13 Kohl Eyes were featured at Donna Karan, Mark Fast and Versace. Online Guerlain and Topshop do excellent versions.
