Never before has Tyra Banks’ ‘smize’ (a smile with your eyes) been more relevant than in this time of face coverings. Several times a week I find myself desperately attempting to channel all the happiness and positivity I’d normally demonstrate via my facial expression into my eyeballs. The “I wasn’t staring at you, I was admiring your beautiful coat” smile. The “don’t worry about your screaming child, I have a screaming child of my own and understand that tantrums happen” smile. The “I’m not a scary adult, I’m a nice one — don’t be scared, child!” smile. I’m not sure if I’m succeeding, but I’m certain that my make-up is helping.

A pop of colour or sparkle can go a long way to demonstrating your temperament. Who could ever think a person wearing sparkly gold eyeliner was anything but friendly? The wonderful thing about colour and glitter on the eyes is that they’re rarely difficult to apply, so anyone can get involved.
