The other day, I ran into an old friend and former Miss USA contestant. Four kids and many years later, she is still a lovely woman. And, she still knows exactly how to maximize her best features.
Gone is the heavy, theatrical stage makeup of her pageant youth. Her deft hand is much lighter now. The result is a professional face that looks finished, without looking harsh or overly “made up.”
But, finding that fine line can be challenging.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and vibrancy. The natural inclination, of course, is to add it back using more (and more) cosmetics. But, to look younger, it’s often the choice of product itself that can make all the difference.
Eyeshadow is a perfect example. Rather than providing camouflage, powdered eye shadow can actually make wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes look worse. The powdery shadow has a tendency to settle into wrinkles making them more – not less – noticeable.
But, giving up colorful eye makeup is simply not an option… which is why I love Pencil Me In eye pencils. These are the best eye pencils ever! They come in a rainbow of shades from pretty neutrals such as Brownie, Liberty Green, Lapis, and Onyx to va-va-voom hues such as Denim, Pink Lady, and Purple Passion. There are 30 amazing shades for every eye color and application. It’s a bit like having a brand new box of Crayola crayons!
If all of these options are a bit overwhelming, choose a 6-piece set that’s been pre-selected for specific needs. Options include “For Blondes,” “For Red Heads,” “Smokey Eyes,” “Glamorous Glitter” and many more. And, for those who need help learning the skills necessary for beautiful eyes, Pencil Me In even provides a free e-book called “How Simple Eyeliner Tricks can Change Your Look.”
Not only are the shades gorgeous, the super soft, creamy formula glides right onto skin, with absolutely no tugging, pulling, or reapplying the same line over and over. Use as a simple eyeliner or fill in your lid to completely replace the need for eyeshadow. The heavily pigmented, waterproof eye pencils last all day, but can be easily, quickly and completely removed with standard makeup remover.
And, there are no harsh chemicals to irritate even my sensitive skin. Pencil Me In eye pencils are Paraben, petroleum, and gluten free.
But, my favorite feature is the built in sharpener! Each pencil cap has a built in sharpener. So, you never have to work with a dull pencil again. The ability to create a precise line anytime, anywhere makes Pencil Me In eye pencils a must-have for touch ups after a workout, for office-to-evening transitions, and for travel.
Single pencils retail for $6.99 each. A six piece set is $40. Or, go for broke with a 30 piece rainbow of color for $168!
