My favourite kind of eye look recently is super simple and plays to my also recent love of eyeshadow pencils. I love he look of a swipe of coloured eyeliner and a black cat-eye so of course when Nunu first showed me the pastel Gelspresso pencils I was initially intrigued but then brushed off the idea of wearing pastels as all my previous experiences with them had resulted in a mostly white eye look – not my cup of tea!
Of course then I had a dear friend who happened to be travelling to Seoul and since Nunu had wanted the lilac eyeliner I thought it couldn’t hurt to try them out if I wasn’t going to be paying gmarket fees…
My impulse buying still needs some training 😛
Thankfully these pastel pencils perform exactly like their regular counterparts from the Gelspresso line: smooth, one swipe twist up pigmentation. I was initially surprised at how bright the shades were but after my initial terror I grew to love them… Or at least the red shade which was actually fuchsia on my lids!
I tried to recreate Dior’s summer look and while my precision with the pencils could use some more practice I love the pop of colour right at the lash line 🙂
Are there any makeup looks you love recently? I’d love to see them!
