I am in love with these gorgeous – and totally affordable – Metallic Liquid Eyeliners ($9.99) from Avon. Read on to see the shades up close and get a quick lesson on how to apply liquid eyeliner flawlessly.
Whenever a Sephora goody bag is delivered to me with products to test, I never know what to expect. All I can ever be certain of is that I’m about to open something adorable that will make me say, “Um, why didn’t I think of that?” My last Sephora delivery was no exception. I discovered Ultraflesh Black Magic – The Jet Black Eyeliner Collection ($42). Find out why this set is my new BFF.
Aside from the fact that I’m just purely over winter, I’m desperate for the warmer weather to hit so I can start sporting these crazy colourful eyes with my new goodies from Yves Rocher. This trend-setting brand has been completely wow-ing me this year!
Eye makeup (my fave) is a great place to experiment with colour. As you can see by the wicked photo above, colourful eyeliner can be the hottest thing ever. Maybe walking around the streets with that many colours wouldn’t work in real life, but you can definitely replace your usual black eyeliner with one of these flashy colours to call attention to your eyes. I’m addicted to the Waterproof Eye Pencil in Turquoise No. 5 ($12). It really enhances brown and hazel eyes and it gives your look a very subtle touch of glam. Plus, it’s a smooth glide pencil so it’s super easy to apply.
I suggest wearing this flashy eyeliner with nude eyeshadow, soft blush and barely-there gloss so the eyes can take centre stage. For the times when a good old-fashioned black eyeliner is called for, I like to use the Felt Tip Eyeliner ($16). It stays in place for 12 hours and it’s ultra-pigmented so it makes for a really exaggerated cat-eye. It’s also a great option for women who love the liquid liner effect but can’t use it (guilty!). I can’t use it either. I always makes a huge mess. The long felt tip makes it really simple to apply and you can stop and continue without messing up the look at all. I love it.
To complete any eye makeup look, a mascara is always needed. I have really grown to become a huge fan of Yves Rocher mascaras so 360 Length Mascara ($19) fit into my routine perfectly. It really does make my lashes longer and thicker and the spherical tip means I never miss those tiny lashes along the inner corner of the eye. Plus, it’s enriched with almond protein, which also coats and protects lashes from damage.
This beautiful new collection will be available at Yves Rocher stores and online starting next month.
