If you look closely at the inner ends of the brows, she drew a straight line to end off the bottom line, and it does the trick to make my brows equal!!
I always have problems balancing my brows this way. She not only balanced it, she thickened both sides without making them look so super-duper filled in and unnatural. Every time I try to thicken my brows, I fill in way to much.
Okay, I shall attempt to learn her method! Such a fruitful trip.
She used the new Hourglass Primer (review from Beauty Reflections here) on my face, and it made an immediate difference. Foundation was also from Hourglass, applied with a super, super soft Hourglass foundation brush.
And she lined both my upper and lower lash line fully, including the waterline. The liner is from Vidi Vici, a Korean brand.
The eyeshadow and mascara is from Hourglass, and so are the cheek color and lip color. The SA says that the mascara is awesome, but I didn't get that.
The cheek color comes from the palette below:
She applied the brown as bronzer near my ears.
And the lipstick is called Grace, below:
Yes, it is sweating because it came out from a very cold place into my warm house. haha.
My first impression of Hourglass is really very good. The eyeshadows are a dream to touch. They feel better than Urban Decay and Bare Escentuals pressed quads/duos. The foundation and primer also have really good skin-loving ingredients. The creme blush stayed on the whole day, and looks so natural, like coming from within. And this lipstick has castor oil as the first ingredient, another skin-loving cosmetic. But then, I guess the good first impression also stems from the fact that Hourglass is not cheap, so I really won't expect anything less.
The only drawback, really is that this is not a line that caters to color-loving people. It is more the kind that serves you uber reliable colors and universal tones which you can invest in and last forever and ever.
So if you'd like to checkout something that is skin-loving, and offers great basics and staples, then head down to Ngee Ann City True Colors Makeup Cosmetics (it's right at the escalator up to Kinokuniya and ArtFriend on the Aveda Hair/Zara floor). LOL, I am definitely not advertising for them. I bought those products. But I am just really excited that Singapore actually has such lesser used brands like Hourglass, Vidi Vici, Lora, and Izu Skincare! I really can't believe it.
Have you heard of Hourglass cosmetics? What do you think of it?
