Tips from your make-up Artist : 

  • Play with colors. We first think about black when we talk about eyeliner but you can find a variety of colors that can make your make up pop !
  • If you are a beginner why don’t you first apply a pencil eyeliner and then cover it with a liquid eyeliner. It is the best training you can do to become an expert.
  • Don’t use liquid, cream, gel or powder eyeliner on your waterline. It won’t stick and It would directly irritate your eyes. For the waterline use a pencil liner.
  • For your wedding day, especially if you are getting married in a humid weather place like the Riviera Maya – Mexico, choose a waterproof formula. The brides use to get emotional on their big day and you don’t want a drop of tear to ruin your make up.
