So Alex started with DO4 Lumiere D'Azur from the Doll Eyes
collection and with the mid tone brushed a line close under
the lower lashes sweeping up to the side

Watching Alex at work ...

Alex then took the mid shade, and brushed all over the socket sweeping up
at the sides.  On top he wet the brush and used the darkest shade of blue
in the middle to get a very intense sapphire blue and shaded in the whole 
of the lid up to the socket line.

In the middle of the lid, Alex applied the lightest shade
with his ring finger for illumination and sparkle.
and in the very corner with the brush the other light shade
... voila
Then Alex drew with black eye liner very close 
to the lashes to emphasise the lash line

and applied Hypnose Mascara for Volume and length

Now for the other eye repeating the same steps.
Brushing the line under the lashes to lay down the shape
filling in the lid and socket with the mid tone sweeping up at the sides
Alex's hand looks like an artist's palette! Xx

Applying the deepest shade with a wet brush for an intense result

Blending the shade when dry - sweeping up at the sides ...
After applying the eyeliner and light illuminating shades on the centre
of the lid and inner corner of eye, Alex carefully coats the lash with Hypnose Mascara

The result with neutral coral lips and blush looks beautiful.

So Hypnose Palettes are available in 12 shades divided into
3 looks  Star, Drama and Doll (from left to right below)
