I remember my first make-up attempts, which – and I am sure that is very common between young girls – were basically framing my eyes pinch black with a kajal pencil (in the subway while beeing late to school). Luckily, that option ended when I had to get contact lenses. Luckily, because thanks to that I realized there are different ways to make your eyes pop without having to look like a panda. And instead of that black eyeliner I now have two other magic ones I don’t make a step without anymore.
01. Estée Lauder eyebrow pencil in ‘Soft blonde’
My eyebrows have been either a ginger disaster or too dark to handle before finding this amazing shade for non-platinum blondes. The best, really. Quick and easy application is a huge plus!
02. NARS eyeliner in ‘Rue Bonaparte’
Waking up is one thing, brightening up your eyes to look so is a whole different story. Especially if the “dabbing a shimmery eyeshadow into your eye’s inner corner” simply doesn’t work for a contact lens user. Or is it just me getting eyeshadow falling and irritating my eyes constantly? Not with this one, that’s for sure. Longwear is trully longwear with NARS and ‘Rue Bonaparte’ is perfect for that popping effect.
