Your eyes dictate the shade

Tips from internationally renowned Dr. Hauschka makeup artist Karim Sattar

Before Dr. Hauschka makeup artist Karim Sattar picks up his brush, he looks deep into your eyes. “I determine the colour nuances of the iris and select Eyeshadows, Eyeliner and Mascara to match. In my line of work, ‘match’ means ‘correspond,’ not the same colour.

In the same way that I would not put a green picture in a green frame, I prefer to surround the eyes with complementary shades. It is this contrast that makes your eyes shine brighter.”

Tip 1. Choose Eyeshadows based on eye colour

Blue eyes love Eyeshadows with orange pigments: shades of gold, sand or brown. Green eyes look particularly beautiful when highlighted by red pigments: colours such as lilac or pink. Brown eyes are wonderfully uncomplicated: as brown contains all colours, all Eyeshadow colours match brilliantly.

Tip 2. Co-ordinate your Eyeshadows and your outfit

Skilfully applied eye make-up should correspond to a striking accessory rather than your clothing. For example, it should reflect the colour of a piece of jewellery, a handbag or pair of shoes.

Tip 3. Eyeshadows for people who wear glasses

Glasses on people who are near-sighted always make their eyes look slightly smaller. Bright, shimmering shades are therefore ideal as they widen the gaze. The cut of the lenses for far-sightedness makes the eyes look larger. If desired, this can be counteracted using matte, dark shades

Tip 4. Eyeshadows for drooping eyelids

Make-up can also be applied to drooping eyelids. However, the crease should be kept dark as darker areas stand out less. On the other hand, a lighter shade should be selected for the upper lid and inner corner of the eye. The eye make-up should also be rounded off by applying white Kajal to the inner rim of the bottom eyelid.

Tip 5. Use Eyeshadows to optimise proportions

If your eyes are positioned closely together, the illusion of a wider gap can be created by simply applying lighter shades to the inner corner of the eye and darker ones to the outer corner. If your eyes are further apart, apply the Eyeshadows the other way round: darker shades on the inner corner of the eye and lighter shades on the outer edges visually draw the eyes together.

Tip 6. Combine Eyeshadows and Eyeliner

For particularly intense, long-lasting colour, use a brush to dab a little Eyeliner onto your eyelid and smudge it in before applying a suitably coloured Eyeshadow to the lid as usual.

Tip 7. Use Eyeshadows instead of Eyeliner

Instead of using Eyeliner, the lower eyelid can be highlighted using an Eyeshadow. This creates soft lines and smooth transitions to the lower lashes.

Tip 8. For the perfect finish

Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadows come in two different textures: Eyeshadow Solos combine colour with silky shine, while the four shades in the Eyeshadow Palette are designed to be matte, making them also ideal for eyebrows.

And to reduce shimmer or to add shimmer

Tip 9. To reduce shimmer of Eyeshadows

Use a brush to lightly dab a little Translucent Face Powder Compact onto your eyelids over your make-up.

Tip 10. To add shimmer to matte Eyeshadows

For deep colours with a shimmering finish, first apply one of the shades from the Eyeshadow Palette (e.g. 04 anthracite). Next, use the same brush to apply a little Eyeshadow Solo (in this case 04 taupe) to give the look a bit more sparkle.

Bright eyes

“To make your eyes shine especially bright, you should pamper them before applying make-up – with Eye Revive. It’s the perfect preparation for a special occasion look. The composition features eyebright, fennel, chamomile and black tea to firm and revitalise the area around the eyes, leaving them feeling refreshed. Now nothing stands between you and a glamorous look.”

Dramatic colour effects

“For an especially dramatic colour effect, you can apply Eyeshadow Solo 07 Lilac wet. To achieve this look, pick up some eyeshadow with the brush and then spray it with Facial Toner. For additional staying power, you can then go over the eye area again with a dry eyeshadow. You can also use this technique as well when applying Eyeshadow 01 Golden Sand to intensify the highlight effect. The eyeshadows contain genuine silk to caress the area around the eye and bring a shine to the iris.”

Summer Sun-Kissed 

“For a lightly bronzed look, after applying Foundation use your Powder Brush to apply Bronzing Powder gently to your entire face for a sun-kissed glow. You can also use Bronzing Powder to highlight and shade certain areas of the face.”

Highlighting your eyes

Eyeshadow 09 Ivory is used to create alluring highlights on the cheekbones this helps to direct attention to the eyes.

Glamorous lashes

“Your lashes contribute to the drama of this glamorous look. It’s very easy to heighten the effect – after applying mascara, simply use the eyeshadow applicator to put some eyeshadow on your fingertips, and then press them gently against your lashes. You’ll be amazed by the results.”

Stay in place look 

“Even when the evening gets late, your special occasion makeup won’t let you down. If you want your look to last for hours, there’s a way to give it extra staying power. When you have completely finished applying your makeup, close eyes and mist Facial Toner over your entire face.

More than just colour

Dr. Hauschka uses the finest medicinal plants and natural ingredients in its Make-up range. Anthyllis, premium jojoba, argan, macadamia and almond oils, waxes and essential oils moisturise and soothe the skin. These ingredients are complemented by medicinal plants selected especially for the area around the eyes – such as black tea to soothe and eyebright to reduce irritation.

Glamour Tip

For more intensive colour, apply Eyeshadow 07 while damp. Just add a little Eyeshadow to a brush, then mist the brush with Facial Toner. This technique can also be used to further enhance the effect of using Eyeshadow 01 as a highlighter.
