You’ve got the perfect dress, the gorgeous shoes, jewelry that shines magnificently – you’re almost done. But such a worthwhile look deserves a make-up to match – not necessarily extravagant, nor necessarily out of the ordinary. It may be subtle, but it’s important to choose carefully the products you use. Yet, they must be of the utmost quality: to last till morning, and to have that special something that turns a predictable make-up into a wow one. Choose from the list below.
A special eyeliner
And by special I mean more: from color (because, yes, the evening it’s the perfect time to choose a hue that you don’t use every day), up to the formula. I chose Inkstroke Eyeliner from Shiseido because it has a gel texture feel, an intense color, it’s very pigmented and, yes, is also water resistant. It’s also easy to apply it – one touch and you’re ready!
The eye shadow
Metallic shades are in the spotlight, especially in the evening make-up scene. And Full Metal Shadow from Yves Saint Laurent is exactly what you need: a liquid eye shadow in metallic shades, which holds up to 16 hours. No stretching, no adding up – so nothing to worry about. Moreover, it has a very easy-to-use applicator: with its aid you can create several types of make-up, even a very graphic one, how you’ve seen on the catwalks in the recent fashion shows.
The illuminating powder
I was expecting for a long time now to tell you about 7 Lights Powder Illuminator from Shiseido! The Japanese brand has launched the first illuminating powder about a hundred years ago, in 1917. And now it beautifully reinterprets it, with a multifunctional product, in seven colors – it captures you on the spot. The powder highlights the natural beauty and can be used as an illuminator, blush, or for contouring.
The eyelash primer
I have to admit that prior to using myself an eyelash primer, I thought it was just a whim: pfff, another marketing idea. But, then, I’ve tried Base Cocoon Mascara from Givenchy and, after that, I’ve used it on a daily basis. What does it do, you might wonder? It prepares the eyelashes for the mascara. It confers volume and length and separates them. You’re going to be amazed of its magical effect only after you use mascara on top of this primer.
Color on your lips
I would have roughly named it simple lipstick, but there’s not a plain lipstick: it’s Vernis a Levres from Yves Saint Laurent. A product with a great formula that provides comfort, hydration, and, of course, intense color to the lips. Yeap: applied in a very simple manner, thanks to the specially created applicator. Just one minute and you’re ready to hit the dance floor!
