Don’t Go With the Flaw Color Corrector + Concealer Palette (P399) from Bobbie Cosmetics
Some of the colors in these palettes from Bobbie Cosmetics might look a little strange if you’ve never tried color correcting, so allow us to give you a quick beauty lesson: shades like these are used to neutralize obvious imperfections. If you have redness on your skin, for example, you can use the highly pigmented green-colored cream to neutralize the red tones on your skin, then just go on top with a tiny bit of concealer. That way, you use less product but get more effective coverage. The palettes also include peachy tones to combat darkness as well as bronze tones for contouring.
Available at Robinsons department stores.
Line Tattoo Crayon Pen (P299) from Maybelline
Make your gaze more dramatic with a bold black liner like this one from Maybelline. Even just a thin application of this black shade can instantly make your peepers pop while also making your lashes look thicker. It also comes in a brown shade for a more subdued, but still eye-catching look.
Available at Watsons and leading department stores.
