BEAUTY BAR: Single Liner

Every time I am back home, I just feel extra lazy and laid back. Especially because it is summer, I really don’t feel like putting a whole lot of effort into makeup and looking glamorous everyday. A summer day in Shanghai, China, can get as hot as the high 90s and have a humidity of more than 60 percent; it literally feels like you are walking in a giant sauna, so wearing lots of makeup may not be the best idea.

When I first saw this Fashionista, I didn’t notice her eyeliner; however, I thought she looked extra energetic. Her outfit was casual and comfortable: classic black Converse, denim shorts, a black tank top and a thin jacket. After taking a closer look, I noticed the way she just accented her eyes with a single block of black eyeliner. No fancy wings, or any other makeup.

She said she was on her way to meet up with some old high school friends and was running late, so her entire look took her less than 15 minutes to prepare. This Fashionista confessed that she liked wearing close to no makeup because it doesn’t take long to apply, and she doesn’t have to worry about it smudging while she runs around the entire day. She also said that if she really doesn’t have any time, she always goes for just eyeliner because eyes are windows to the soul, and if your eyes pop, so will you.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To complete this look, all you need is a good eyeliner that you are comfortable with using.
