THE COUTURE KAJAL… When you put it in your hand, it feels like a pen. And, because it’s soft, it glides on easily and gives a sexy, smudgy effect that looks great on every woman.

THE PERFECT SMOKY EYE… Prepare your eyelids for eye shadow by substituting your usual eye primer with Couture Kajal. You’ll be adding depth and mystery, thanks to its intense dark, deep colours.

THE VERSATILE PALETTE… What I love about the Couture Palette Collector in Metal Clash is that it’s so versatile: You can go for a bronze look or you can bring a sense of drama for evening affairs with the dark plum.

MIXING TEXTURES… Gloss Volupté is a great look for evening because the metallic shimmer is such a strong focus. But if you’re adding a touch of metallic to your look, it’s a good idea to keep everything else matte.
