Save for the occasional flick of the perennial gloss on the lips that usually completes a woman’s beauty routine, we somehow will always favor the Anastasia-steely look. This semi-elaborate eye makeup look manages to draw more attention to that drama that is all ruled by the windows to the soul.
One of our favorite top makeup brand, Maybelline, challenged us to complete your eye makeup in one (1) minute using their bestselling eye makeup products that are under P500. With 3 wands, you’ll be out of your door looking fabulous in less than 5 minutes.
Ready?… Timer starts… NOW.
Step 1. Fashion Brow Cream Pen, P199 (new 2016 product)
Brush your eyebrows upward with a spoolie wand before shaping your brows with Maybelline’s Fashion Brow Cream pen. The arch is usually above the line where the black of your pupils end. Lastly, brush lightly the tail end of your brows. You can swipe white eyeliner above and below your shaped brows to highlight it or simply dab a little higlighter on your brow bone.
Lasting power: 1-2 hours

Step 2. HyperCurl Mascara, P149 (January sale price only)
Prime your lashes with lash serum should you wish for fuller and longer lashes prior to applying Maybelline’s Hypercurl Mascara. This product guarantees that you no longer need to curl your lashes before applying it (although you might want to apply 3-4 more coats to achieve fullness).
Notice the curve of the mascara wand helps angle your hand towards better sweeping motions.
Fortunately, this mascara has waterproof elements and is now my go-to swim buddy on occasions when I wanted extra vava voom eyes after doing laps. Yes – no clumping, no smudging, no racoon eyes!
Unfortunately, its waterproof elements means more effort to take it off. Removing the mascara using ordinary makeup remover might be challenging. Try dousing cotton balls into warm water instead and slowly wipe them off your lashes.
Lasting power: Till your next eye makeup remover schedule
Step 3. HyperMatte liner, P199 (new 2016 product)
Ah – want wing tips or that perfect black line over your lids?
Tricky, tricky, tricky.
When applying the HyperMatte Liner, make sure you shake the product prior to application and wipe off excess product on the container to avoid runs.
If you experience any tremors – step away from the mirror and do not attempt to do it alone! Now, experience the purest, blackest and mattest-matte liquid eyeliner there is in this planet in seconds.
If you have oily lids, the product is very likely to run. It helps if you have a mattifier on.
Lasting power: 4 hours
