For the longest time (years and years...and years), I lined my lower lash line with black liner. I did it because... well, that's what I thought I was supposed to do! From time to time I dabbled with colored liners but black liner was my mainstay. The blacker, the better!
A couple years ago, I went to Harvey Nichols at the Dubai Mall and I had a one on one session with a global makeup artist at Estée Lauder. He told me to ditch the black on the lower lash line and use blue instead. "Blue?!" I thought myself. I always associated blue with outrageous 80's makeup. However, he told me that blue would bring out the green in my eyes and make them pop!
Since this makeup session, I have used blue liner (or sometimes grey/purple) nearly everyday. I completely ditched the black liner and haven't looked back!
I recently received a Misslyn Intense Color Liner (28 aed, Ansar Gallery, Ajman) in Cosmic Poetry in my Sparkling Eid GlamBox. This shade is best described as a beautiful medium to dark ocean blue. The Sparkling Eid GlamBox also contained a Misslyn Perfect Match Eyeshadow Trio (38 aed, Ansar Gallery, Ajman) in Midnight Sky. As soon as I saw these products I was eager try them out!
Misslyn is a new brand to me. Up until receiving the products in my GlamBox, I had never used Misslyn before. I love trying out new brands, and this one surely does not disappoint!
The eyeliner is very smooth and creamy. It blends and smudges so nicely. Perfect for a soft eye and easy to "smoke out". I find the eye shadows to be pigmented and blend beautifully as well. Fabulous product choices, GlamBox!
Achieving the "pop" is very simple. To make things even simpler, I broke it down into 3 easy steps!
1. Line the inner lower lash line with blue eyeliner.
2. Use a small packing brush and lightly place eye shadow beneath the lower lashes.
3. Blend the eyeliner and eye shadow on the lower lash line. This creates a soft effect.
The final result: Eyes that pop! (How easy is that!)
Need a "live" demonstration? Don't worry, I've got you covered! Head over to my YouTube channel, The Beauty Majlis, and watch me apply the eyeliner and eye shadow to make my eyes pop!
