The eye pencil is perfect to emphasise your look. To be applied at the edge of the eyelashes of each eyelid for an intense makeup. Draw a line of varying thickness starting from the outer corner. Blend a bit the line on the lower eyelid with less intensity for a balanced look. Apply eye pencil before eye shadow to set the makeup.
The lip liner allows you to draw your lips and is best used in conjunction with a ZAO lipstick or gloss, which prevents bleeding or smudging. Feel free to powder with ZAO mineral silk 500 to fix the line.
The eyebrow pencil makes your look more intense. Brush eyebrows up and down and redraw them, following the natural hair direction. Directed down, they give a certain “languishing” to your look, whilst directed up, the look becomes more “chic“. Feel free to powder with ZAO mineral silk 500 to fix the line.
Zao beauty tips for:
Eye pencils: If you’re tired, do not wear makeup on the lower eyelid, which would accentuate dark circles. For a perfect “doe eye” effect, trace the outline of your eye while going up, accentuating the outside line.
Lip pencils: Draw the outline of the lips before applying lipstick or gloss. Start with the “V” of the upper lip and the middle of the lower lip. Then go up from the corners of the lips to connect the points.
Eyebrow pencils: If your face is oval, choose the eyebrows with natural curves. For round faces, increase the angle to “break” the roundness. If your face is long, choose long and slightly accented eyebrows. Finally, if your face is square, make sure you set a “soft” curve to soften facial features.
