ANYTIME is the perfect time of the year to use makeup products because the first thing that attracts the "eyes" is your face. Here's a list of products that I have been using often this summer & going into fall for eyes. This year, my goal is to use makeup more as I have graduated, entering the real world. Most often I hope to look my best for those unexpected, magical encounters ;)
My top 5 EYE Products
1. Rimmel scandal eyes waterproof eyeliner (pencil)- Work & Night Out
This was an unexpected find as it was on sale when I purchased it. My intention was to get a lighter color eyeliner so it will be appropriate for work. To my surprise, the eyeliner lives up to its "waterproof" standard! I had it on while volunteering for a special event in Vancouver, when a down pour came in the middle of nowhere. After 10 minutes of pouring rain, my windbreaker was drenched. Even my inner shirt was soaked. But my eyeliner stayed intact! I was glad the panda eyes wasn't a result of mother nature's dramatic change.
2. Lise Watier HD eyeliner- Work
This is by far my favorite liquid eyeliner. Its easy to put on as it glides through the surface of your skin. The brown had a hint of rose gold, which neutralizes the color for a natural result. I like how the color looks subtle on the lid rather than a dark, coarse line. As someone with oily skin, it doesn't smudge to the bottom of your eyes. Its perfect for everyday, fresh look.
3. NYX liquid eyeliner- Night Out
I bought this about a year back. The brush tip was really skinny but easy to apply. It is equivalent to Dolly Wink, if you have been using the Japanese makeup brands as well. Its not exactly a pencil, but its easy grip and the brush doesn't spread too much that you'll end up getting a thick line. This is good for going out, for sure!
4. Benefit "They're Real" Mascara- Work & Night Out
Received a sample version of this about a year back at Sephora. It is one of the best mascaras that live up to its advertisement. You can apply for a few coats and still look natural. Best of all, they don't smudge easily if you rub your eyes. (probably a different story if you rub too much)
5. Annabelle Expandable Mascara
This is the solution for Asian lashes that have a hard time staying curled, at least for me. I was lucky to have the opportunity to test the mascara before buying one. This mascara is formulated to hold up curls so it doesn't fall after two coats. The twist-able handle is designed for the change in bristles to brush both top and bottom lash.
