Sketch by Nick Barose
I've been always adoring women who can don make up very well so that they could look fresh and pretty, but I myself almost never done any make up (only for special occasions like a wedding party or my graduation.. and it's always I had someone did it for me ^_^ ), either because I don't think I'm good at it, or because I always feel that I don't have enough time to do it.. (especially right now, as a mother of three).
My everyday make up when I'm out from home, usually just a baby powder or compact powder applied on my face (is this counted as make up?).. that's it. Sometimes, I don an effortfully (for me) standard one: moisturizer that contains UV protection, compact powder, a bit touch of neutral or pastel colored lipstick, and rarely mascara.
Deep in my heart, I always interested in learning how to don make up very well, especially for the eyes, like eye liner and eye shadow. I love how the right foundation and eye make up make my face looking fresh.. However, I always believe that a healthy skin and body give much more contribution to you looking fresh and beauty, yet a very well-applied make up has its own way to do so ;)
I ever read a quote about make up that sounds something like this.. "You can wear make up and still be yourself.. but with the addition of self-confidence and feeling prettier.." hahha.. you can agree or not with this ;)
And recently, Nick Barose (the mastermind behind Lupita Nyong'o --an Oscar winner Kenyan actress--'s signature bright eyeliner) shared his 10 easy eye liner looks and how to create each of them on Harpers Bazaar.
I think this time I'd love to try some of them when I'm out.. especially the winged black eye liner. But, before that, let me think of which eye liner should I buy as the first timer? ;)
Here, StyleList compiled Barose's tips in a more easy-to-read slide.
