Eyebrows, Eyeliner, Mascara

Mascara and eyeliner are probably the duo that I have to use everyday. Since I'm trying to grow my fringe out, eyebrow powder has been added to the routine. All these 3 are important to draw attention to the eyes. 

The eyeliner is to accentuate the shape of the eyes, changing the shape as I please, be it the puppy eye look or cat eyes, which will create different effects to the overall look. I usually use black for eyeliner because I prefer a harsh, strong look. 

Currently in love with the Waterproof Eyeliner Pen from IN2IT. The tip is like those on highlighters so it's really easy to control. It's around RM15 in Watson's. Try it! 

A step to step make up tutorial I posted on my instagram some time ago. 

You can see the obvious difference with and without mascara. 

The mascara actually seals the deal for my eye make up. It opens up my eyes more, and prevents the lower liner (if any) from smudging. 

One of my pet peeves is not applying mascara to lower lashes. A lot of people fail to understand how much mascara on lower lashes helps frame the eyes better and make them look wider. Granted some people barely have lower lashes, but for those who have normal lower lashes, try applying mascara to your lower lashes. If you're afraid that it might mess up under the eyes, put a name card below your eyes when applying, and try not to blink until it's dry. It usually doesn't take long to dry unless your mascara is quite new. 

(Tip: Wipe off some of the mascara from the wand with a tissue to avoid clumping and easier application, it might sound like a waste, but it helps get the job done better)

My current favourite mascara would be the Maybelline Lashionista and Rocket Volume Express. 
Love the Lashinista because it's great at creating separated but long lashes. It's not as dramatic as they claim it to be, but it does the trick. 

The Rocket Volume Express is easily removed with warm water and non-oil based removers. It doesn't smudge either. 

For eyebrows, I use the CLIO 2 in 1. The top is eyebrow powder and bottom is gel liner. Don't like the gel liner because it dried up on day 3 and is really hard to apply. 

The eyebrow power is not bad, but doesn't last long because my brows area is really oily and I keep unintentionally wiping it off, especially in the afternoon and I'm outside. 

It comes with a 2 way brush. The other side is for gel liner. Love the brush for the brow powder (in pic above) coz it's angled and flat. Great for shaping. 

The cover for brow powder has a tiny mirror attached. It's about RM 65 in Watsons. 

Eyebrow powder. Front part accidentally wiped off. XD With the IN2IT eyeliner and Rocket Volume Express mascara to finish the look. 

So that answers a few questions. Ask if you have questions. 

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~
