The Insomniac's Dream: Golden Sunny Eyes (Entry #2)

Golden Sunny Eyes is a soft day look that will brighten tired and dull eyes.

I.) Create this Classy Chic Look:
Photo 4 . Maybelline EyeStudio Ingredients: Give Me Gold (#05), Gel eyeliner in Blackest  Black (#950), XXL Pro Volume Washable Mascara
A.) Eyeshadow: Give  Me Gold (#05)
1.) Highlight – apply the lightest shade on the brow bones (i.e. under the eyebrow), inner corner of eyes, and lower lash line to make the eyes pop.
2.) Accentuate  – sweep the second shade across the entire eye lid and dab a bit of the formula over the lower lash line to brighten the eyes.
3.) Emphasize – add the third hue on the outer corner of the eyes to give the eyes more depth.

1.)  Define and contour – line the entire top and bottom waterline, and extend the line slightly beyond the corner of the eyes. This will also give the appearance of thicker lashes and bigger eyes.

1.) Volumize and sculpt – curl your lashes then apply formula #1 followed by #2 for thick and full lashes.

II.) Mini Reviews and Confessions:

I am highly impressed with Maybelline's smooth and creamy, long lasting, and super pigmented shades. The hues in Give Me Gold goes on sheer and glittery but can be layered for a more dramatic look. It is perfect for ladies who like neutral colors or for colorphobic individuals.

I have switched from using pencil eyeliners to Maybelline's gel eyeliners permanently. There's no sharpening required, grittiness, and tugging on my eyelids. I am absolutely crazy in love with Maybelline's gel eyeliner. The colors are intensely rich and the products are ultra smooth, which allows me to effortlessly glide the eyeliners on. Next, the eyeliner is long-lasting, water-proof and smudge-proof. I didn't end up with raccoon eyes after my daily run. :) I approve Maybelline's gel eyeliners and highly recommend it.

The XXL Pro mascara dramatically lengthens my short (and non-existent lashes) all day without smudging or flaking. I didn't have raccoon eyes after exercising. :) The mascara and the eyeliner can be easily removed with warm water, soap, and a cotton towel.

In summary, I am extremely happy with the quality of  Maybelline's EyeStudio collection. My eye make-up lasts over 16 hours without fading and smudging. Make the switch to Maybelline and make touch-ups history.

Thanks for reading. :)
