Where do I start? I have so much to tell you about makeup. I use so many different products so I thought I would start with some of my favorite must have items. The first one that comes to mind is the Shiseido corrector pencil. It really is a “Magical Pencil”. Every women should defiantly have one in her purse!
It comes in 3 colors: light, medium and dark. I use the medium pencil 90% of the time, most people can use this color. It is a wonderful multipurpose pencil. It is great to have in your purse for the unexpected spot that may pop up on your face, usually on the way to a date or important meeting! Why does this happen? I also use it to cover the annoying blue vein that most people have on the side of their nose where the inner corner of the eye meets. Covering this is an instant eye opener! Another little eye opening trick I love is using it to rim the eye, apply it on the lower ledge just above your lashes. Some people use a white pencil to do this which does brighten the eye but looks fake, but this pencil is skin tone which looks natural and makes your eyes look bigger and brighter. This pencil is also wonderful for doing bright red lips. First I do the red lips, then blot them down with a tissue, then use the pencil to make a outline of the red lips. Make the shape perfect! Doing this not only gives you a crisp line but it helps it stay that way. The line of the pencil makes a tiny little dam helping it not to bleed. Then reapply your lipstick. Can you believe a simple pencil could have so many uses?
Have a great day!
