A professional make up artist has offered guidelines for women wanting to give themselves the "smoky eye" effect.
The look should not be confused with the "cat look", according to Amy Boyd, who trained at the School of Makeup.
She explained to women that the smoky eye look involves painting a dark circle around the eye and not to go further that its edges.
"It is either a cat look or a smoky look and you can"t mix them," she stated.
Furthermore, it is necessary to have the right brush as fingers are not suitable for every application.
Ms Boyd urged women to have a blending brush.
"The twenties look is coming back in and [that has] got nice round eyes," she said.
Earlier this month, Asda revealed that its sales of false eyelashes have increased by 50 per cent for the year to date.
Hello! magazine recently revealed that singer and X Factor judge Cheryl Cole uses false eyelashes.
