Best Eyeliner and Eye-shadow

“The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.”
~ Calvin Klein

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! But isn’t true  beauty also natural? Of course it is! We may cover up blemishes and tired skin with make-up, but we can still look natural and refreshed, right? The answer is always a big  YES!!!

I love make-up. It’s fun and makes me feel pretty. Finding the right products was a little challenging, considering I have allergies and my skin is hypersensitive. My make-up has to stay put for the entire day, or until when I decide to wash it off. Constant touch-up, running eyeliners, smudging shadows, are amongst my biggest pet peeves, and will not stand for them. Does anyone want to look like a losing boxer? What do I mean by that? Hmmmm, walking around with two black eyes? No, not pretty! How about eyeliners that burn your eyes so much, causing them to tear the entire day?  Thanks but no thanks! There are brands which I stick by because they totally work for me, today I’m going to share them with you.  Please CLICK on images for product details and ordering.
