I’ve discovered a new makeup trick for making my mourning routine even faster — eyeshadow pencil!
I have always been a bit scared of cream eye shadows, I don’t know why, but powder works just fine and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it is my motto.
But I recently received this Champagne Eye Shadow Pencil by Sumita Beauty in my Glossybox, and one day I decided to give it a test drive.
You can easily control how dark it is by how much you apply, and it blends in easily with a fingertip.
All of the summer makeup tutorials I’ve seen lately in the magazines say for the perfect casual summer look, apply a neutral shadow just on the lid and not past the crease, then finish off with a bit of eye liner and mascara. That’s what I’ve been doing with this eye shadow pencil, and I love it. Totally easy, quick and it looks natural but polished.
I love how the champagne color brightens the eye area and makes you look more awake. It’s like a natural eye lift!
Oh and hey! Another video! I’m on a roll this week. See how easy eye shadow pencil is to apply:

I joke about a natural eye lift, but if you find that you have excess skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids, there are surgical options that can help. If this is something that you’re considering, check out one of my site sponsors, Smart Beauty Guide, for more information.
