Clarins Open Your Eyes Wide Makeup Collection

Coming our way on the 24th June the Clarins Open Your Eyes Wide Makeup Collection. My favourite item is the 4D Mascara I literally reach for this one every day as its just so amazing for my lashes. The collection consists of the mascara, ombre’s and eyeshadows in different textures, waterproof liners and brow pencil. I didn’t get my hands on the brow pencil but I did get a sparkle shadow instead. I am also obsessing over the liner, I got the Blue Orchid shade which is a fav colour of mine and makes my eyes really pop.

The Clarins Ombre (R355) come in 2 textures satin and velvet and plus there a 3 sparkle eyeshadows. to choose from. Out of the 3 velvet shades I got to play with Pink Paradise a pretty baby pink shade which my daughter will totally want to steal. The velvet ombre is matt and long lasting. Apply with a flat brush or fingers, you can just swipe this shade onto your lids and you good to go. Or start as a base and then layer with the sparkles and liner.

I love the Clarins sparkle Shadows (R355) as they are really pigmented. There are 3 gorgeous shades in the colection, this one Gold Diamond is just so pretty. Pat onto your eyelid with a flat brush then take a blending brush and blend out the edges for a party sparkley eye. Alternatively you can apply the sparkle over the velvet to add pop to the centre of the lid or in the inner corners of your eyes.

The amazing Clarins 4D Mascara (R360) gives beautiful volume to my super sad lashes. If you follow me on instagram you will see in some of my videos that without mascara I look rubbish. So its called 4D because it gives volume, length, curved lashes and high definition. I don’t have to curl my lashes with this bad boy, I apply and I am good to go.

Infused with Rose Wax to help coat the lashes and protect at the same time. I love that it doesn’t clump or smudge and I don’t even need to apply any other eye makeup.

The Clarins Waterproof eyeliner (R355) comes in 6 shades. Am super happy that I got sent the blue as there is nothing sexier than a blue liner and a bold lip. The liner glides on beautifully and of course being waterproof it will last the distance. The liner is super easy to blend so you can create a smokey eye, a bold line or just smudge out the edges its totally up to you.

For a bold eye I applied along the lash line you can use tape on the outer edges to really create a beautiful cat eye.

Here I took an angled brush and then puled out the edges to make it a little softer. The liner is so easy to manage I love it.

I applied a touch of my sparkle eyeshadow to my lids to just add a little extra something. You can sparkle the whole lid and then go in with the liner its totally up to you.

Apply lots of mascara to finish the eyes and fill in your brows to finish the look.

I went with a bold red lip as they really compliment each other. I am super exited for the full range to come out as there are some gorgeous shades to choose from.If you are a lover of mascara then you defintely want to add the 4D to your collection. Check out my Peachy Glow Insta stories to see the mascara in action.

I will be showcasing the products on insta stories next week so you can see swatches and some of the makeup in action. I may even test out the pink ombre on my daughter Tatiana.
