Create The Eye-conic Look with Maybelline! #MaybellineNYFW

Have you ever imagined how it would be like to be in the most electric fashion and beauty event of the year?  I have - twice a year actually, when the biggest names in the fashion and beauty industries come together for the New York Fashion Week while we and the rest of the world could only watch from our tv and computer screens and ogle! 

Thankfully, NYFW's official makeup and beauty partner, MAYBELLINE, brings all the New York trendiness to us Filipinas by sharing the top makeup trends as seen on the runways. No less than It Girl top model - Georgina Wilson rocked all three looks as she brought us live updates from NYFW last September 11 to 17.

Trend 1: Make Modern Mattes Happen / Trend 2: The Eye-conic Look / Trend 3: Year of the Strong Brows 

Today on the blog, I'm recreating my personal favorite - the Maybelline Eye-conic Look!

Step 1: FACE

For maximum coverage, I used Maybelline's Super Mineral Liquid Foundation on different sections of the face from the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, and spread equally with a small triangular sponge.

Tip: Always use a slightly damp sponge for better and equal coverage. I found that using a damp sponge also keeps the product from clumping while you apply it. 

For a smooth matte finish, apply just a thin layer of Maybelline's White SuperFresh cake powder. 

Step 2: EYES

To recreate Georgina's amazing Eye-conic Look, I started with the Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Leather Cuir in Creamy Beige. Apply it equally on the eyelids. 

I noticed that by applying the Color Tattoo as your base, the next layer of eye shadow sticks to the skin a lot better and helps keep the whole thing from smearing. 

Then I took my favorite - Maybelline's new The Nudes Palette and blended the brown eye shadow with the creamy beige base. Apply the darker shadow at the outer corner of your eyes and a thin layer below your brow bone.

Tip: Apply small amounts of eye shadow on your brush to better control how dark you want the color to be. It's easier to add more eye shadow if necessary than trying to undo an overly dark application!

Next, I used the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in brown on my upper eyelids to create my winged eye look.

Finish off with the Maybelline Volum' Express HyperCurl Mascara

Mascara is always a MUST for me because it helps brighten up my eyes no matter what look I'm going for!

Step 3: CHEEKS

For my cheeks, I used the Maybelline Blush 'Em! cheek color in I'm Fashionista! I love this particular shade duo because personally, I think that it looks more natural than those that are pinker in shade. Plus, it goes extremely well with the Eye-conic Look!

Apply your blush just under the cheek bones. I also like to brush a small amount on my jawline, chin, and the sides of forehead to create highlights and even out my look. 

Step 4: LIPS

I'm finishing off my Eye-conic Look with bright red lips using Maybelline's iconic Bold Matte lipstick in MAT4 Red!

What do you think of this look? Do you think I pulled off Maybelline's Eye-conic Look? 

You, too, can recreate this look with the amazing products I used at discounted prices because there will be a Maybelline New York Fashion Week sale from Novermber 13 to December 15! Even the NYFW featured products will also be on sale! What a treat!
