Fashion Week starts today and I’m so pumped to be working with the Maybelline team again bringing beauty touch-ups to the fashion masses! Â Here are my fave Maybelline beauty picks for surviving the week’s jam-packed schedule.
1. Â Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil
Good brows are like that amazing pair of shoes that go with everything…in other words, a must-have! Â Luckily, the days of over-tweezed, pencil-thin brows are long behind us. Â But if you’re like me and your over-worked brows do need a little bit of TLC – don’t worry – getting good brows is super easy with this user-friendly brow pencil! Â The tiny nib of Define-A-Brow allows you to easily draw on fine strokes to mimic eyebrow hairs, while never distributing too much product. Bonus: Â no sharpener needed, Define-A-Brow is self-sharpening so just roll it up for more.
2. Â Eyestudio Master Precise Liner
Fine lines are easy to achieve with this amazing Master Precise Liner – the 0.04 mm tip is the ultimate in liquid liner precision. Â I’m a liquid liner girl all the way mainly because of its uber-lasting ability – I literally don’t have to worry about it all day until I have to take it off at night! Â Any make-up product that means one less thing to touch up throughout the day always wins points in my beauty book!
3. Â VolumExpress Â Rocket Mascara
With VolumExpress Rocket Mascara, only a couple of coats are needed for a serious blast-off towards volume. Â Even the tiniest of lash hairs get maximum volume treatment with the rubber micro bristles of the brush. Â Love, love. Coat, coat.
4. Â Instant Age Rewind Concealer
The two C’s: Â Concealer along with coffee is a definite daily morning routine during Fashion Week. Â Fortunately with Instant Age Rewind Concealer, no one will know how much sleep you (and I) might be lacking. Â For my unruly dark circles (…which is a combo of genetics, probably too much caffeine and a schedule that lacks in sleep), I like to first apply Brightener (60) for a highlighting effect that counteracts the underlying blue tones of my circles. Â I top that off with Medium (30), a shade lighter than my skin tone, to blend it all in….and nobody’s the wiser!
5. Â Baby Lips
Not only is Baby Lips a moisturizing lip balm, it can act as a highlighter and a brow-keeper – talk about multi-tasking! Grace Lee, make-up master and Key Make-up Artist for Maybelline, has been known to mix clear Baby Lips (Quenched) with a bit of white eyeshadow to create a dewy highlighting effect that looks glowy on the runway. Clear baby lips also works to keep unruly brows in check (for you lucky ones that have full brows!!).
6. Â Color Whisper
As much as I love bright lips, matte lips, dark lips…and as much as those are all the trend right now – these all scream high-maintenance to me. I much rather prefer comfortable colour on my larger lips…and that way I don’t have to worry about it smearing or getting on to my teeth, etc. Enter Color Whisper – a gel-based lip colour that’s super-soft and moisturizing on the lips. The colour is more sheer, but interacts beautifully with your own lip tone. I love it’s kissable-like texture – not too goopy, just perfect not-too-made-up lips. With twenty shades to choose from, there’s definitely bound to be one colour that catches your eye…or if you’re like me, there’s in fact three that have caught mine: Â Mocha Muse, Pin Up Peach and Lust for Blush. ;)
There’s definitely many, many more Maybelline loves that I can mention here, but really I’d run out of room (and out of your attention) before I got through all of them…AND I should probably get some sleep in anticipation of this week. Â Here’s a thought: Â why not come experience the products in person with a touch-up?! Â I’ll be there with…with coffee + concealer in tow!
