I must admit I own a shameful number of eye shadow palettes for someone who has no idea what they’re doing. With all of the choice, I struggled to know where to start. “You can use any shadows or palette to create a smoky eye as long as there is a mix of lighter and darker shades. Just find a palette you love,” Parmar advises.
Wanting to make sure I got it right, I asked her for her top palettes of choice and opted for Vieve The Essential Palette.
“Once you have chosen your shades, use a medium to light colour all over the eyelids,” she says. The truth is I probably went a little bit too dark for my usual style but also felt as though I might as well go the whole hog.
