Noir Cosmetics Lifeline Liquid Liner

Best Liquid Eye Liner: I just discovered a new favorite liquid black eye liner: Noir Cosmetics Lifeline Liquid Liner. I can get the perfect lined eyes with this eye liner. The brush is very friendly and easy to use. This liquid eye liner creates a clean precise line and it is long lasting. I also love the packaging for the Noir Cosmetics line: Mostly in black hence the brand name: ‘noir’ (Black in French). Just simple and elegant. Looks like Noir is the expert in all things eye makeup from a pencil sharpener, eye liners, mascara, to a gentle eye makeup remover.

Bobbi Brown Makeup

Smoky Eyes: I’m loving my eyes smoky these days. I feel a bit 1960s nostalgic, edgy, and playful with smoky eyes. For the longest time I’ve been using black purple eye shadow or dark brown. I’m now addicted to black eye shadow. My favorite is: Bobbi Brown eye shadow in Caviar, $20 (see image below). I apply to both the upper and lower eyelids, and add a black liquid eye liner by Maybelline to wing my eyes for an extra dramatic and wow factor effect. Promise, I will update with photos very soon!:)

Jamie Greenberg Explains How to Get Nikki’s Radiant look:

Eyes: “Nikki has gorgeous dark eyes that I really wanted to play up. I started by smudging mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Java along her upper lash line, followed by two coats of mark Scanda-Lash Hook Up Mascara on the top lashes. For her bottom lashes, I took the tip of the mascara wand and carefully coated each lash for definition, then brushed it out with the wand for separation. I finished by applying mark I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Nomadic to her lids and Fairy Dust in her crease.”

Kate Hudson is on the cover of Elle Magazine UK December 2009 issue and I’m intrigued with her bold and very dramatic eye makeup. The photo reminds me of the 1930’s for some reason, maybe it’s the dress. And I really love Kate’s artistic and timeless pose. Do you also love?

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Gelee Micellar Make-up Removal Gel

I’m always on the look out for great makeup removers. I like the process of removing my makeup before bed easy, clean , and very simple. This is why I love La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Gelee Micellar Make-up Removal Gel, $24.50. It literally feels like water on your face, maybe because one of its ingredients is actually La Roche-Posay’s Thermal Spring Water? Skin feels fresh as soon as you apply this makeup remover on your face. It’s fragrance-free, not oily, and very simple to remove or wipe off. Which means, there isn’t a residue left after you apply. Do you know the feeling? Major plus!!  It felt gentle and didn’t irritate my skin. OK to remove eye makeup as well. And, it’s available at CVS *.

How To Apply Lancôme Ink Artliner in Indigo Charm With Sandy Linter

On my recent trip to New York City I visited the Lancôme boutique on Upper West Side, which was a totally luxuriating (Marta just made this word up) experience. I love makeup and I love Lancôme so as you can tell it felt like heaven to me, lol. The icing on the cake was being introduced to Lancôme’s top celebrity makeup artist Sandy Linter, an industry icon. She’s worked on more celebrities and supermodels than any artist around. She was recently awarded an Elle Genius Award (check out the April 2009 issue of Elle!) and there’s a great interview with her in the April Allure that’s part of the gorgeous “Coming of Age” story featuring Cindy Crawford.

When chatting with Sandy, she told me she did makeup for Sigourney Weaver! Sandy also did the makeup charts for the Austin Powers movie. Yes, yes…cool stuff! 

I was thrilled when Sandy Linter offered to makeover my eye makeup, particularly my eye liner. She told me I almost got it right however with my eyes being a bit roundish she suggested I change my eye liner application technique. She recommended Lancôme Ink Artliner in Indigo Charm and to go for a softer eye makeup look. She took off my black eye liner and gave me the following tips on how to apply Lancôme Ink Artliner in Indigo Charm:
