Bride Candy: Chubby Stick Shadow Tint

Clinique delivers a portable and fun eye colour that is just perfect for achieving stay-put bridal beauty


They’re like Crayola crayons for grown-ups, which is just one reason why we love these Chubby Sticks from Clinique.


The brand’s amateur-friendly applicator has been available from their counters in different make-up guises for a while, but now the Sticks have turned their attention to your peepers, with a new range of Shadow Tint for Eyes with twelve gorgeous shades.

With more brides opting to do their own make-up on the big day – if it’s good enough for the future queen, it’s good enough for the likes of you! – it’s key to find products that you’ll be comfortable using on that special morning. We love that you can now rely on Chubby Sticks for eye colour, as muted or as dramatic as your individual look dictates, because they’re so simple to use.

The colour is cream-based, and so can be applied by sweeping the stick across your lid. Easy for a single colour application, but simple enough to blend more than one shade too, as you just need to remember to blend with a brush before the colour dries.

Here’s a tip for a fresh bridal look from Clinique Global Colour Artist, Jenna Menard:

Apply Lavish Lilac Chubby Stick as an all-over colour on your eyelid, and pull it along the bottom lash line too. Then sweep our Fuller Fudge shade along the top lash line as a wide eyeliner.
