Colorful stacked liner look

This is a simple look for the season, recommended by Beno, MAC Singapore’s Senior Artist. 

Color is in, but it can be quite daunting trying to decide how to wear a bright blue or fuchsia or green on the eyes without looking completely bonkers or just unlike yourself. 

The tip is just to wear it as an eyeliner, by using a stroke of pencil as a base, and then the right brush (flat, firm, angled brush) to gently dab powder shadow onto the line. 

The black liner at the base of the lashes is one of the things you should not skip because it will help to define your eyes and stop your lashes from disappearing when you’re wearing bright, strong colors near there. 

Another thing to look out for is a neutral shadow to define your lids and socket line, but you might want to look for something that contrasts with the liner shade you’re using. The color combi Beno recommended was MAC Amber Lights on the lids, followed by Freshwater as a bright blue liner. 

I redid the look the next day using a softer combination in case you want to try it for work or school. I used Patina on the lids, and Bright Fuchsia pigment as liner color. 

Eyeliner, Eyelash and Eyebrow Brushes: Eyeliner brushes come in all different shapes and sizes so you will always be able to find one that suits your fancy and gives you the look you want to achieve. Whether you want a super thin precise brush or a thick, dense brush chances are you’ll be able to find one. Brushes aren’t essential for the lashes, but having them on hand means you can do a few nifty little tips and tricks. The everyday girl or beginner doesn’t need every one of these brushes and can just stick to an angled brush and spoolie to get perfect eyeliner and well-groomed brows.

Seriously Alo’s lashes tip is a game changer! I barely, if ever, wear falsies but my best friend does all the time, and I thought she got extensions when she first started doing this…but nope. She just changed the way she put on her lash glue. 

It takes tonnes of practice, but I hope it works out for you. Here’s an additional video Alo uploaded to show how real they look - http://instagram.com/p/v_8CToLSdh

How to Maintain Your Brow Shape

Whilst brows should be thick, there is no such thing as a universally flattering shape. This is merely a guide on how to reshape your brows, I highly recommend that everyone visit a brow specialist at least once in their life, you can keep them in shape yourself. A good brow stylist should be able to figure out your ideal shape just by looking at you. Make sure you do your research and ask a lot of questions before choosing a brow stylist.

Whether you choose to wax, tweeze or thread is entirely up to you. Waxing and threading are best for removing large amounts of hair where as in tweezing is best for precision and removing small amounts of hair.
