My make-up routine has not changed since I started wearing make-up in high school. My Mom taught me the basics: cat eye with a liquid liner and mascara for full lashes. Although they tend to be one of the most challenging applications, the cat eye AND the liquid liner are what I know and I know them well. I love the sultriness of the simple cat eye with a liquid liner, and carbon black lashes are perfectly coquettish. Over the years, I’ve tried many products on the market. If my routine doesn’t change, I might as well try different products that can get me the bombshell look, right? I recently tried COVERGIRL’s new Bombshell Collection and it really takes my daily make-up routine from ordinary to extraordinary.
What I love about liquid liner, especially the COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner is that it is perfect for creating a defined liner look, allowing you the precision it takes to keep the liner sleek. A clean winged liner can look so good yet can be so difficult to achieve! The trick is to apply with short, quick strokes from the inner eye and extend beyond the eye for the winged cat eye look. The Intensity Liner creates a sleek liner that suits the shape of your eye and lasts all day.
Mascara is arguably the most important beauty product to most women. Many of us only apply mascara and head out the door on most days! Mascara gives us a fresh, sexy, and polished look, which means it’s extra important to find a good mascara. I’m fortunate to have fuller lashes, but I never skimp on applying at least a few coats before I head out the door. The COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara adds amazing volume and length and compliments the sleekness of the liquid liner.
I rarely wear eyeshadow as it’s an extra step for me as I’m usually running out the door. The COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow is simple to apply and comes in a variety of shades to fit every cover girl’s needs. I opted for a neutral tone in Gold Goddess, which works great on the entire lid and as a highlighter on the brow bone.
I’ve included a simple step-by-step guide that will take you from dull-routine to Bombshell in under ten minutes.
Step 1: Apply COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow to your lids and up towards your browline, making sure to blend well. I find that blending with my index finger works best.
Step 2: Using COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner line along the lash line in quick short strokes. For a simple look, stop the liner just at the edge of your eyes. For a more dramatic look, line upwards for a classic cat eye.
Tip: I always anchor my pinky against my nose and/or cheek when I apply liquid liner. The slightest wrong move can ruin the whole look, so as long as I have my pinky resting against my nose and/or cheek, my hand is steady and able to draw a precise line.
Step 3: Apply COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume Mascara to your top and bottom lashes.
Step 4: Finish the eyes by adding a bit of the Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess to the inside corners of the eyes to really make the eyes pop.
Step 5: Using your fingers, add some volume to your hair. I think this is a fun, yet vital step in getting a bombshell look whether it’s for the office or happy hour.
With COVERGIRL’s Bombshell Collection, you really bring out your inner bombshell. With a party skirt, jewels, and bright lips, I was ready to take on the day and night!
