How to Enhance Your Eyes

Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar

Choosing the perfect eyeshadow

To really enhance your eyes, to make them look more alluring, bigger, brighter and the whites appear whiter, then choose eyeshadow colours that fall opposite to your iris colour on the colour wheel, as opposed to colours that are the same or similar colour as your eyes or colours that match your clothes.

Complementary colours

Colour wheel
Colour wheel

The opposite of blue is orange/golds/browns

The opposite of green is lilac/burgundy/pinks

The opposite of brown is aqua/blues/greens

Using complementary colours provides the most contrast between your iris colour and your shadow colour, therefore it’s this contrast that enhances your eyes.


Suggestions to enhance your iris colour


Blue Eyes

Eyeshadow Trio 04 sunstone, Eyeshadow 05 amber, Eye Definer 02 brown/05 taupe, Liquid Eyeliner 02 brown, Defining Mascara 02 brown, Volume Mascara 02 brown.

Green Eyes

Eyeshadow Trio 03 ametrine, Eyeshadow 03 rubellite, Eye Definer 06 plum/02 brown, Liquid Eyeliner 02 brown, Defining Mascara 02 brown, Volume Mascara 02 brown/03 plum.

Brown Eyes

Eyeshadow Trio 01 sapphire/02 jade, Eyeshadow 04 verdelite, 02 lapis lazuli, Eye Definer 01 black, 03 blue, 04 green, Liquid Eyeliner 01 black, Defining Mascara 01 black/03 blue, Volume Mascara 01 black.

Hazel Eyes are multiple colours so choose the same recommendations as for brown eyes using the colour wheel concept to contrast differing colour flecks in your eyes to highlight.

Aside from complementary colours, everyone needs a brown, taupe and neutral shades palette too, This also includes brown eyes, which can use browns, just need to stay away from muddy browns. Eye & Brow Palette with matte shades for both eyes and brows.

Application Tips

  1. Always apply eyeshadow from outer towards inner, not the other way around, for a professional and uplifting look to your eyeshadow application. When you apply from inner to outer you end up with colour dragging your eye downwards.
  2. When you’re applying your deepest colour to the crease, always keep your eyes open to ensure correct placement of the colour.

Hot Weather Make-up Tips

Always cleanse, tone and moisturise before applying makeup. You may wish to use a matte moisturiser such as Rose Day Cream Light or Melissa Day Cream if you have a Combination Oily T-Zone skin condition. Leave your moisturiser to absorb prior to makeup application.

For a long lasting makeup go for our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s technique of…

1) Foundation 01 as a ‘primer’
2) Concealer, inner eye only, not outer eye where it’s likely to sit in fine lines
3) Translucent Powder Loose, applied with Powder Brush and tapped to remove excess before applying
4) Apply Foundation in your shade, applying with a foundation blender brush for that ‘air-brushed’ look. Yes, after powder, for long lasting makeup.
5) Translucent Powder again, applied with Powder Brush and tapped before applying, think less is more, you don’t want a caked look
6) Apply Bronzing Powder and Blusher
7) Set your makeup by misting Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner
8) If need be use Translucent Powder Compact during the day

HOT TIPS for a long lasting eye line

1) Moisten an angled brush with water
2) Pick up colour with your brush from just the one corner of the darkest shade in your Eyeshadow Palette
3) With your brush apply a line to the lower lash line from outer to inner, starting a little further out than the outer edge of your eye
4) You’ll need to pick up more colour with your brush, then apply to the upper lash line from the outer to the inner and beginning from the extended colour from your lower lash line so the two meet
5) Define your brows with the residual colour left on the brush, if it’s not too dark. Alternatively, choose one of the two lighter taupe colours in the Eyeshadow Palette
6) Set and keep lines soft with dry powder over the top

And if you prefer a more defined upper lash line…

1) Use Eyeshadow Palette for your eyeshadow, using a little of the darkest colour close to your lower lash line, with an angled brush is best for application.
2) Apply Kajal Eye Pencil Black close to the upper lash line, smudge and use darkest colour eyeshadow to set.
3) Apply Liquid Liner Black close to the upper lash line. This technique will make the application of a Liquid Liner much more forgiving.

Set your lipstick with Karim’s technique…

1) Apply Lipliner over the entire lip area, don’t do outlines
2) Apply Lipstick
3) ‘Kiss’ a tissue to remove excess
4) Apply Translucent Powder Loose with the powder puff
5) Apply Lipstick again
6) Apply a dab of Rose or Cherry Gloss mid bottom lip only

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.
