RIGHT: The natural eye is coloured with a soft brown along the lid, very close to the lashes; it also extends under the lower lashes to the centre of the lower lid. A speck of white highlighter goes on to the centre of the lid before mascara is applied.
LEFT: This green eye is first outlined in black kohl, along insides of eye rims (both top and bottom).
