Those who know me are familiar with my low-maintenance beauty routine – usually consisting of simple ingredients such as face lotion, primer, blend of liquid & powder foundation, mascara and sometimes a touch of eyeliner. In short, I’m ready in 5 min max…makeup just isn’t my thing but I like to look somewhat awake when I leave my apartment each morning.
However there are those moments when I feel like adding a little more to my routine just to shake things up. Before for certain dinner or event occasions but I’m catching myself interesting in making my eyes pop a little more for everyday. But my definition of ‘pop’ means it leans on the more natural side of colors, preferably neutrals.
Lucky for me, I’ve partnered up with Maybelline New York to introduce the newest additions to its eye makeup collection – launching this month, January 2017!
I’ve tried out these three MUST-HAVE eye-sentials and couldn’t be happier with how my eyes turned out! I got the perfect blend of natural with a ‘pop’ of something, in the most neutral way that’s perfect for a sans-makeup gal like myself.
THE 24KARAT NUDES PALETTE
This is a collection of iridescent, show-stopping gold neutrals influenced by backstage beauty.
All about gold, the new palette features sultry, shimmering shadows in 12 magnificent shades of gold, bronze, and copper to create your signature eye look. The silky texture blends easily for soft, high pigmented color that lasts. The long-lasting formula ranges from light to dark shades with both matte and shimmery finishes for optimal customization. Standout with 24k side of nude.
I played around with the shimmery yet natural gold (top row, third from the right) and love how it turned out against my skin tone!
MASTER PRECISE LIQUID INK PEN LINER
This handy-dandy liner gives full control to create smooth, even, perfect lines with no skipping. The ultra-thin tip supplies a continuous flow with no excess, while the exclusive ink technology keeps pigment saturated for the boldest of eye looks. It’s so thin, you can have fun and create artistry on your own eyes.
It only comes in one color – black – but who cares!? There’s no other liner like this that I’ve tried where I physically (and evenly) was able to apply it to my upper lid! Pretty proud of myself, not gonna lie…
Now this is a volumizing mascara that lifts and separates in just one coat for full and undeniably bold lashes.
This backstage-inspired, breakthrough formula reveals lashes you never knew you had! The fully-loaded brush contains five wells filled to the brim with wavy bristles to maximize the delivery of the formula to lashes, coating even your tiniest lash. The unique design of the bristles gathers more formula, boosting length and volume beyond belief. With this collagen-fueled, long-lasting formula, you will flaunt big, bossy lashes that won’t smudge, clump or dry out!
Ps, the shape of this mascara physically allows you to grab every lash on your eyelid, making them bolder and more gorgeous than the average mascara wand.
YOU CAN FIND THESE AMAZING PRODUCTS IN STORES EARLY JANUARY 2017 – SO RIGHT ABOUT NOW!
I PROMISE IF A MAKEUP BEGINNER LIKE MYSELF CAN ACTUALLY MAKE MY OWN EYES LOOK THIS IMPRESSIVE, IMAGINE WHAT YOU CAN DO!
