Korean make-up tips: Mesmerising ombré eyes

K-pop stars often rock gradient lips on glossy magazine covers, but did you know that ombré eyes is slated to become the next 'It' make-up look?

Although you can achieve the look by blending a few shades of eyeshadow, it is sometimes difficult to choose hues that work well together.

This is when two-tone shadow bars come in really handy. One swipe on the eyelid gives you two lovely shades.

Captivate others with your ombré eyes as our make-up guru Anne shows you how to create an everyday look that's great for the office and beyond:


First, apply an eyeshadow primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion) on your eyelids to keep your eye make-up in place throughout the day.

Highlight your brow bone using an ivory eyeshadow with a pearl sheen (Aritaum mono eyeshadow in #68).

Swipe eyeshadow (Laneige two-tone shadow bar in Humming Coral) across your eyelid with the coral shade facing downwards. Apply a few more coats for the colours to pop.

Blend the eyeshadow hues using your finger tips.

Tilt the shadow bar and apply coral eyeshadow to outer corners of your lower eyelids.

For a softer look, line your peepers with a warm medium/dark brown pencil liner (Etude House Play Pencil #49). Extend the liner outwards to a straight cat-eye.

To prevent the eyeliner from smudging, set it by dabbing a brown eyeshadow across your lashline with a flat brush.

Add a sparkle to your eyes by lining the inner two-thirds of your lower eyelids with a pearl beige shadow stick (Innisfree Shadow Pencil in #5) and brushing on some shimmery eyeshadow (MAC's eyeshadow in Honeylust).

Curl your lashes and coat them with mascara.


Brush on a coral/peachy pink blusher (Nars blush in Deep Throat) on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy flush.


Lightly pat foundation on your lips to help the lip colour stay on longer.

Apply a warm nude lip colour that also hydrates your smackers (Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Complex).
