Loved your summer holidays finger painting classes as a kid? Recreate the magic on your eyes with a bunch of pigmented colours just dabbed on in a haphazard manner. Once done, dip a thin eyeliner brush in some micellar water and clean up the shapes to make them appear a bit more uniform; finish with a liner to add definition.

04. Pink smokey eye

Give your dark and mysterious smokey eyes rest for the summer and opt for soft and fruity shades instead. Use traditional pink shades to create a lovely smokey that will match all of your floral summer dresses. It will make for a romantic date look as well!
