Last year I had the opportunity to interview the fabulous makeup artist Ariane Poole as part of my “LadyM Meets series”. Her dedication to enhancing womens natural beauty has made her an international name in the fashion and beauty industry over the last 25 years. Her philosophy on make-up is, “you that should notice the woman not the make-up; everyone should compliment YOU on how great YOU look!”
Following that mantra I have been testing out two products from the great arianepoole* range. Co-incidentally the two products that I was sent are prefect for hazel coloured eyes, which I have. I was really keen to test out the Eye Shine, in Stellar, a soft brownish bronze.
It’s a great layering product and feels luxurious, without being heavy on the eyelids. The Eye Shine is a liquid eyeshadow that glides on really nicely to give a sheer colour that lasts for hours. It dries quickly and you can build it up, I blend it with my fingertips but you can also use a shadow brush.
I have also applied other powders over the top to give a contrast of colours, it’s a great base and feels really nice to wear. Plus it’s hypoallergenic and paraben-free, which I do look for in my beauty products.
The next product to try was the Luxury Mascara in black. What is great about this mascara, and trust me I have tried many – is the shaping of the brush. For me, the curve to match the natural curve of your lashes meaning you get a great finish. The mascara doesn’t clog on the brush and it gives great definition to the eyes. You can see the mascara being used in the following instagram shots. I think it really enhances the eye.
You can buy the eye shine and mascara duo here and browse the other great products in the range. As well as eye products there are lips, cheeks, bases, concealers and foundations as well as some tools to help you perfect your look.
