Michael Phillips, International Makeup Artist for New CID has this step-by-step guide to give eyes smouldering sparkle:
1. Applying New CID i-glow in Sirocco to the lash to brow area as a base. The shimmery highlighter reflects light beautifully.
2. Using New CID i-shadow in Laguna, start with the silver shadow and apply over the lid as a wash of colour.
3. Use the deeper chocolate shimmer shade and blend.
4. Use i-smoulder in Ameythest under lower lashes, starting with the liner end first, then blend the shadow at the opposite end into the line to create a smokey defined look.
5. Add eyeliner and mascara and get ready to wow!
These shimmering cream highlighters from Urban Decay are a great way to maximise your cheekbones and add definition to your party wear make-up.

“Channel the Studio 54 look with colourful Andy Warhol-esque tones packed over the entire eyelid offer a fun and modern alternative to festive smokey eyes.
“Avoid spoiling your foundation with eyeshadow fallout by working on your eyes first.
