I visited Shu Uemura Cosmetics at Rockwell last Sunday. I learned about their latest collection – Metallic Bouquet. I totally fell in love with their metal: inks ( pencil liners in a metallic finish ). Its totally different from the liners I have used and this is smudge proof. I actually tested it n it lasted for 8 hours. I swatched them all so you would have a look on the colors available.
This liners are perfect for winged liners. Perfect for simple make up, fashion makeup or avante garde makeup.
Here are the swatches of 9/10 liners, as only 9 liners were available when I went.
My personal favorites are red, blue, gold and brown. I would definitely purchase these.
We all are used to lining our waterline with black eyeliners. There are other options we can use. I have swatched some other options for you to use.
1. Mac Coffee Lip Pencil (could be used for the eyes as well)
2. Mac Stubborn Brown Powerpoint Eye Pencil
3. Mac Fascinating Eye Khol
4. Mac Hi-Def Cyan Chromographic Pencil
5. Mac Jade Way Technakohl Eye-liner Kajal
It’s a proven fact that when you use white eyeliner in your waterline your eyes tend to look bigger. So if you feel you want your eyes to look bigger you know which one to use.
I love Mac Gel Liners its so easy to line my eyes with it. I prefer gel liners over pencil because I like to get a good precision in lining my eyes. You can go thin or thick with lining the eyes with it. We all are so used to using black in lining the eyes but there are so many other options.
Here are other options for Mac Gel liners <3 ( Water Resistant and Smudge Proof)
1. Phlox Garden
3. Rich Ground
4. Dip Down
6. Black Ivy
I have been a guest Artist in Mac for more than 3 years now. I truly love their products. So yesterday I was there as a guest artist and decided to swatch my favorite lip liners.
Here Are Mac Lip Liners I Swatched:
1. In Synch
3. Hip N Happy
8. Bespoken For
In past I would always apply lipstick directly on my lips. After taking up my makeup courses I learned that lining the lips with lip liner helps the lipstick last longer. Also it would be easier to achieve your lip shape through the pencil which looks quite appealing too.
This year I got an opportunity to attend Mac’s Runway Trends Master Class led by Romero Jennings, Mac Cosmetics Director of Makeup artistry USA. His been with Mac for 23 years now which is a great achievement. He gave us an overview of 4 latest runway trends and his shared with us his secrets to his success.
1st Trend: Re: View
2nd Trend: Enlightened
3rd Trend: Free Party
4th Trend: No Makeup
My favorite among the 4 trends was the free party. As I love to play with colors and try different looks. In this trend you have the freedom to go with imagination to come up with this look.
I also met some of my makeup artist friends there
and also some of celebrity makeup artists I look up to. Must say an added bonus.
I am very thankful to Mac Cosmetics for giving me this opportunity, specifically to Ms. Odessa Andal who has been supporting me since day 1. It was loving meeting Ms. Gay Lao and Ms. Vani Vergara of Mac Cosmetics Philippines as well.
