So I have showed you my favorite face makeup products for 2009, now is the turn for the eyes!
A lot of you have asked me how I got my eyeshadow to show up so vibrant in my ETODs and the answer is none other than Lumene Eyeshadow Makeup Base ($10).
Best Eyebrow Product
With 3 eyebrow powders and 3 highlighting shades, Anastasia Highlighting Brow Kit ($32) has everything I needed to create the perfect eyebrow.
Best Powder Eyeshadow
I have always been a fan of MAC eyeshadows but Yaby Cosmetics is gradually taking its place. ♥ its excellent pigmentation, wide range of colors and textures and reasonable prices!
Nothing beats MAC Pigment ($19) when it comes to loose eyeshadows. I own over 50 colors and my collection is still growing.
Best Liquid Eyeliner
Although MAC Penultimate Eye Liner ($16.50) debuted last Christmas, I still have not found a replacement for it. Its firm felt-tip applicator makes drawing the thinnest line a piece of cake and it lasts all day too!
Best Gel Eyeliner
I have been using MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack ($15) for years now and even though I have tried other brands, I always go back to it.
Best Pencil Eyeliner
Personally, I don’t believe in spending tons on pencil eyeliners (pencils just aren’t meant to be completely smudge-proof) which is why my favorite is Rimmel. You really can’t beat the cheap prices, pretty colors, great pigmentation and a texture so soft it will never tug your skin.
Best Eyelash Curler
I have had my Shiseido Eyelash Curler ($17) for over 12 years and I’m still using it every day! ‘Nuff said!
After years of wearing mascaras, I have learnt that combining a lengthening mascara with a volumizing mascara gives the best results on my tiny Asian lashes. My top picks are 1 coat of CoverGirl LashBlast Length Mascara ($7.99) followed with 2 coats of Rimmel The Max Volume Flash Mascara ($7).
Best Fake Lashes
For falsies, I definitely stand by my own line of Makeup For Life lashes ($4). Not only are they super easy to use, they come in a variety of styles that will suit different occasions.
Best Eyelash Glue
Sworn by all the pros in the industry, Duo Eyelash Adhesive ($5) is my must-have for applying lashes. This stuff is so good my falsies stayed intact after the Vertical Velocity roller coaster ride at Six Flags!
