I love being privy to a beauty secret straight from the mouth of an expert, and they don’t come much more exciting than those that come from Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder
A breakthrough new mascara from the brand is based directly on his secret backstage technique for big, beautiful eyes, and goes by the name Sumptuous Two Tone Mascara. The genius is in the two contrast colours and two different brushes, and the difference is really rather astounding.
The wonder product brings a dual approach to your lashes, combining two contrasting shades and two distinct brushes for instantly lifted, wider eyes. Boldly dress your upper lashes in rich black and define your lower fringe with a more subtle hue and you won’t look back.
“My favourite woman is a woman who looks like herself at her best,” says Mr. Pecheux. “I love eyes that are made up without looking too made up. This is a trick I’ve been using backstage and on ad shoots for years. The simple trick of using two different shades - darker on top, lighter on the bottom - works to really open up the eyes.”
The bold drama on upper lashes comes via the BrushComber brush, which defines, lifts and thickens even the sparsest lashes and colours them a rich bold black shade. The tiny MicroBrush at the other end adds a little soft lustre to lower lashes, accentuating and defining them with a softer, more subtle, smudge-proof hue. Sounds too easy, huh?
Try it, you’ll love it.
