Top Five Eye Shadows for your Make-up

Top Five Eye Shadows for your Make-up

I think the biggest change of girls’ make-up when they become adults in Korea is in their eye makeup, that we become addicted with eye shadows!

I would like to introduce top five eye shadows that I actually have and used based on my own perspective to offer you good tips. 😉

5. Mono Eyes No.67 ‘Dear’



One of the most famous and best eye shadow series, the Mono Eyes from ARITAUM has so many beautiful eye shadows such as No.67 Dear. Above picture is from another blog and below one is what I took by myself, actually trying on my forearm. Dear has somewhat light nuddy brown color, so it is good for base eye shadow make-up! Also, If you want to give point to your bags under the eyes, Dear would be good because it shimmers suitably.

4. Look at My Eyes BR401 ‘In to My Heart’


Etude’s Look at My Eyes series also has many good eye shadows, that it’s cheaper than ARITAUM’s Mono Eyes series. BR401 ‘In to My Heart’ is also a famous eye shadow among the series. As you can see, it had dark brown color and it shimmers quite a lot. Therefore, if you want to make your eyes to look sexier or stronger, you can use it with several touches. Also, color comes out directly by a single touch, so I guess you could use this one shadow for a long time.

3. Pure Radiant Shadow No.6 ‘Classy Mood’

As you can infer from the name of it, four colors of this shadow box has calm colors. Also, the size of the whole shadows are not so big, so you can take this one shadow little box and manage whole daily eye make-up at once. Buying shadow box like this is a good way for people who are not so familiar with eye shadow, because it already offers steps and you can just follow! As you can see, four colors starting from upper left get darker and therefore you can just put them from lighter one. Whenever it’s hard for me to carry all eye shadows, I just take this one and my eye make up is done!

2. Mono Eyes No.97 ‘Modern Fatal’


Second Mono Eyes eye shadow in my top five list is ‘Modern Fatal’. As you can see, its color is not to strong, but has somewhat rosy brown color. Therefore, it is good when you want to look feminine and girlish! However, the color doesn’t really come out well by single touch, but that means you can use it for daily eye make-up. This shadow is what I enjoy putting on and use as daily eye make up with Dear and another Mono Eyes shadow named ‘Maxi’ because I like feminine make up. Therefore, I recommend this rosy brown eye shadow if you want to look more womanly and softer.

1. Mono Eyes No.50 ‘Cocktail Dress’


Finally, my favorite eye shadow is from ARITAUM, again Mono Eyes series ‘Cocktail Dress’! It is a pink color eye shadow and shimmers quite a lot. I like its color because it is one of  my best pink eye shadows and it is baby pink. This shadow is also perfect for spring make up! In addition, one more reason why  I chose this as the best eye shadow is that the color comes out really well by a single touch! Texture is also very soft, so I believe it would be good for eye makeup beginners too 😉


Shine on: Metallic make-up is hot this spring

Shine on: Metallic make-up is hot this spring (Apr 12, 2015)

* Summary

It is a style news from ‘Life&Style’ category of Sunday Express, and a beauty editor named Amy Packer wrote it. She says metallic make-up is one of hot trends of this spring, so go ahead and try them on your faces (if you are interested in make-up). According to her, because metallic color suits for every skin complexion from a palest English woman to one with more sultry complexion. However, there are some tips that you will have to keep in mind when you try the metallic make-up. First, perhaps it was a model on a catwalk where you first noticed metallic make-up that glimmers and shines all over their eyes to the brows. Nevertheless,  you don’t have to follow the model’s make-up since metallic color can somewhat stands out too much. Therefore, be careful not to put the metals all over your face, it is several touches on your lips, cheeks, or eyes that you need for the metallic make-up. Also, keeping the balance is important. Choosing nude, matt shades for the eyes when you’re trying a metallic make-up for the first time or sheer, creamy lip colors on the occasions when you have chosen for a high-shine eye. In the end, the editor recommends some real metallic items that you can buy and try on.

Cleopatra’s Eye Make-Up Had Health Benefits

Cleopatra’s Eye Make-Up Had Health Benefits (January 8, 2010)

* Summary

French scientists had discovered that the heavy eye make-up which ancient Egyptian women enjoyed may have been good for their eyes health. They claimed the research result by publishing the content in the journal Analytical Chemistry. They said the result was due to the lead in the mixture the Egyptians used for their make-ups, that it helped to fight with bacteria which induce eye infections! Even though the lead is known as a lethal component to human health, if only small amount of lead is used, it gives health benefits according to scientists from the Louvre Museum and the CNRS research institute. Also the most popular model for her dark eye make-up in ancient Egypt is Cleopatra. She used to darken her eyes to look sexier. However, according to the study shown in the news, maybe she meant for not only beauty on her face but also health for her eyes!
