When wearing a mask, emphasis on the eyes

By Zsarlene B. Chua, Senior Reporter

THE PANDEMIC has pressured most folks to dress in confront masks for overall health and protection factors, which usually means that a lot more than half of people’s faces are now included. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they really should prevent savoring playing with make-up and that is what the newly released beauty manufacturer, Prepared Set Glow, would like to do.

Launched in February, the community brand has an remarkable array of colored eyeliners, eye shimmers, and lipsticks, with the eyeliners touted to be “smudge-proof and waterproof.”

This author was presented a choice of the eyeliners and lipsticks to attempt out and at initially look colored eyeliners can be intimidating, particularly for a person like me who has only been applying possibly dark brown or black eyeliner.

But then again, if men and women are discouraged from going outside the house until unquestionably important and to  don masks when venturing into the wild outside, this may be the perfect time to experiment with shades.

And that is what this writer did around various times: attempt making graphic eyeliner appears to be like.

Graphic eyeliner is a makeup model where by eyeliners are not only positioned close to the lash line but are built to spotlight the full eye utilizing sweeping traces over the lids, underneath the lids, and so on. Lots of of the far more well known designs have been influenced by historic Egyptians’ eye makeup.

In the kit delivered to this author, there were being 3 liquid eyeliners: the royal blue OMG! Liquid liner, the ocean eco-friendly Slay! Liquid liner, and the vivid yellow Lit! Liquid liner (P249 just about every) and a few gel liners: the Unicorn Magic (pastel violet), Frilly Tutu (crimson), and Wild Tiger (tiger yellow (each and every for P599).

About various days, this author has virtually completely utilised the liners for her on line occasions and legitimate enough, the liners (both of those liquid and gel) had been smudge-proof and water-proof as they managed to survive 12 hours on my typically sweaty eyelids.

The felt tip on the liquid liner experienced ample stiffness and flex for more than enough handle — placing on a cat eye was a breeze. The liquid liner does just take a couple of seconds (fifty percent a minute most) to dry, so remember to consider not to blink in that time, normally, an eye look that took 25 minutes to do will be ruined in seconds, as what happened to me. It wasn’t a finish disaster nevertheless, as a very good Micellar water — I advocate Bioten Skin Humidity Micellar Water (P350/400ml) and a pointed cotton bud to deal with blunders.

The gel liners — identified as Badass Gel Liners — are a bit more workable, however I propose that if you locate it far too rigid, operate the liner back again and forth on the back of your hand first to soften it a bit due to the fact you definitely do not want to retain tugging on the extremely thin pores and skin on your eyes.

Even though stiff, I identified that the gel liners are workable enough if you want to use it as eyeshadow, just transfer fast in any other case it sets and it’s on endlessly (until eventually you take out it with a cleanser, that is.)

Here’s a pro-idea for you: the three gel liners I received also perform perfectly as shade correctors — the Wild Tiger is wonderful to use beneath the eye to cancel these underneath eye circles, although Unicorn magic is to correct yellow undertones and you can also use it below the eyes, and the Frilly Tutu can coloration correct blue undertones for people with further skintones. Once again, blend rapidly and use a small at a time.

Regardless of getting a a lot less than a year-aged model, Completely ready Set Glow has undoubtedly established alone aside from other brand names in the colour cosmetics space because of its vivid items, but the brand is not stopping there as it does plan on introducing far more goods shortly.

“We have in the pipeline a incredibly good variety of products coming in probably at the late 2020, before this 12 months finishes, or early 2021. There is so substantially in the lineup and we are so enthusiastic about it,” Carla See De Castro, assistant marketing and advertising head of All set Set Glow, mentioned for the duration of the launch on Oct. 24 held by using Zoom.

“Being a functional brand, we’re not just concentrated on shade or graphic makeup but we will appear up with anything that is much more for day by day use — but 1 that is absolutely special due to the fact that is our character and our brand’s statement,” she additional.

The brand name also declared its two new endorsers: actress Ina Raymundo and her daughter, singer Erika Rae Poturnak.

“We genuinely preferred the mom and daughter tandem due to the fact we desired to present that our products and solutions can be utilized by your daughter or tita (aunt) or even your great lola (grandmother), who loves colors and who’s nevertheless creative and enjoys daily life,” Marian Lao Siggaoat, co-founder and imaginative director of the brand, reported in the same convention.
