Winged eyes that won’t ruffle feathers | Funmi Fetto


The idea that a statement eye has to be outlandish is old school. This modern take on the winged eye, seen at Christian Siriano SS21, is an excellent example of a statement eye that isn’t too intimidating to look at or to pull off. Use an inky black liner to draw a line across the eye crease. Draw another one close to the top lash line, extending it outwards until the two lines meet. Dab a punch of colour on half your eyelid and keep everything else neutral: it’s a statement eye, not a statement face.

I can’t do without… A wonder mask with great results after a single application

Finding a face mask that is nourishing and hydrating, while treating acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation without being greasy or leaving a weird residue is a tall order. But this mask is a rare product that ticks all the boxes. I recommend it for a range of skin types and concerns: sensitive skins dealing with breakouts; mature skins that require a hydration boost; any skin that needs a brighter, more refined texture, without going down the exfoliating acids route. The formula is largely made up of manuka honey – 55% to be exact. This honey is known for its healing and antibacterial properties. The mask also includes vitamin C for brightening; niacinamide, great for refining texture and improving acne prone skin; stevia leaf, which acts like retinol but without irritation; ferulic acid, to shield the skin from pollution (which can cause hyperpigmentation); hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturise; and minerals including zinc, copper and magnesium to strengthen skin barrier. Yep, it’s a powerhouse – but a gentle one. Initially I thought it looks, smells and feels like honey. However, the results – super-hydrated, brighter and smoother skin even on first use – are infinitely more superior than slapping on the supermarket stuff. I’ve tried that, so I know.
