Lancome Eye Heroes

These three new products from Lancome have quickly become an indispensable part of my makeup routine.

When I'm getting ready for work in the morning I scarcely have a minute to spare, so I don't like messing around with loads of products. I tend to keep it simple, and after applying a light base, I concentrate on defining my eyes for a polished look.

I use the amazing Le Correcteur Pro concealer palette (€38), which has three shades to perfectly cover-up any problem areas, to conceal blemishes and brighten up my eyes. I apply the peachy shade on the far left to the inner corner of my eyes to hide dark circles, then use the centre shade to conceal blemishes and perfect the skin tone under my eyes. Finally, the setting powder on the right comes into play to give a long-lasting hold. This comes in eight shades (Ivoire, C Buff, W Buff, C Bisque, W Bisque, Bisque, Suede and Deep Suede) so the palette caters for a range of skin tones.

To cover up any discolouration on my eyelids, and add a bit of definition, I then apply the La Base Paupières Pro (€23) cream eyeshadow base. This is a waterproof lid primer for ensuring your eyeshadows stay put throughout the day, but I like to use it alone for a more natural look. There are six shades in this range.

After applying a few coats of mascara (Lancome's Hypnose Drama is a longtime favourite), I then use the Le Sourcils Pro eyebrow duo (€21.50). This fab limited edition product is a dual ended product which has a creamy highlighter on one end and a brow pencil on the other side. The highlighter is lovely and subtle, I like to use it below my brows and in the inner corners of my eye to brighten. The pencil is excellent too - with a pointed end that I use to lightly define my brows without looking really obvious. There are four shades, Blond, Chatain, Brun and Noir.

The Le Correcteur Pro is on counter now, the La Base Paupières Pro and Le Sourcils Pro launch on May 1 as part of the Hypnôse Naturals collection.
