Napoleon Loose Eye Dust
# 34 ( Silver)
This eye shimmer can be used as an eyeliner when combined with "cake sealer" by Napoleon or as a shimmer for the eyes. This is a wonderful colour because it has tiny sparkles and can be worn as both a day or night look.
Dabbing it a little in the corner of the tops of the eyelids will brighten up tired eyes. Or try wearing it over the entire eyelid for a smouldering effect.

Achieve runway makeup looks in minutes. All it takes is a steady hand and a quick and easy application of your eye shadow. Here's how the makeup artists do it in minutes.Smouldering Eyes in 5 minutes
A great way to define your eyes and compliment an outfit is to have "smouldering eyes" - a very sexy and dramatic style to make up your eyes.Colours you'll need:
1. Beige/Bone shadow
2. Black/Grey eyeliner
3. Black/Grey eyeshadow
4. Gold or Silver shimmery eyeshadow
Use the Beige/Bone colour over the entire lid as a base for your eyes. This will also ensure your eye colour lasts longer.
Line the inner and outer rims of your eyes with eyeliner and smudge gently with a cotton bud to give eyes a sexy look. Don't over do it though as it can often end up looking too smudgy and messy.
Apply Black/Grey eyeshadow over the brow bone and blend, extending outwards towards the temples, but don't extend it too far out. Blend shadows well with fingertips.
Apply a Gold or Silver shimmer to the inner corner of the eyes.
Repeat this for the other eye and voila! You'll have sexy smouldering eyes in just 5 minutes!
