Multipurpose Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil - ZAO Makeup
Instructions for use:
Perfect to emphasise your look. To be applied at the edge of the eyelashes of each eyelid for an intense makeup. Draw a line of varying thickness starting from the outer corner. Blend a bit the line on the lower eyelid with less intensity for a balanced look. Apply eye pencil before eye shadow to set the makeup.
Beauty Tip: If you're tired, do not wear makeup on the lower eyelid, which would accentuate dark circles. For a perfect "doe eye" effect, trace the outline of your eye while going up, accentuating the outside line.
Allows you to draw your lips and is best used in conjunction with a ZAO lipstick or gloss, which prevents bleeding or smudging.
Beauty Tip: Draw the outline of the lips before applying the red or gloss. Start with the "V" of the upper lip and the middle of the lower lip. Then go up from the corners of the lips to connect the points.
This makes your look more intense. Brush eyebrows up and down and redraw them, following the natural hair direction. Directed down, they give a certain "languishing" to your look, whilst directed up, the look becomes more "chic“.
Beauty Tip: If your face is oval, choose the eyebrows with natural curves. For round faces, increase the angle to "break" the roundness. If your face is long, choose long and slightly accented eyebrows. Finally, if your face is square, make sure you set a "soft" curve to soften facial features.
Indication of skin type: Suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive ones.
