One of the biggest beauty trends of 2019 is eye makeup using a soft contour pencil. This spring, you can go out without eyebrow makeup, without lipstick and foundation, but you should definitely put kajal on your eyelid.
Olga Romanova, makeup artist and creator of Romanovamakeup: “Kajal is a pencil with a special texture that is applied to the waterline, an essential element of any smoky eye makeup. The pencil should be soft, pliable but durable, and hypoallergenic - as this part of the eyelid is very sensitive. If the pencil is not fixed on your eyelid, I advise you to gently strengthen it with the shadows of the same shade, then it will last the whole evening!
You should not be limited to black only - look for delicate natural milky shades, golden, copper, dark brown, matte, and even colors with sparkles! Experiment without fear, and if you like bright colors, try ultramarine and fuchsia.
For such a bright eye makeup, the main rule is a perfectly even skin tone and a properly worked out area around the eyes - hide signs of stress with the help of concealer. ”
