Some of your received this incredible product in your November bellabox. The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil comes in a huge range of colours, so you might be wondering why we sent you Milk. What are you supposed to do with a white eye pencil!?
Well I’m here to show you exactly how to make the most of this product. This is a cult beauty item that you’ll see referenced time and time again by beauty bloggers, and once you start using it you will be hooked. It’s so versatile, and you’ll find yourself reaching for it over your high end products!
Here are my top five ways to use the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, none of which are as an eyeshadow!
Base For Your Eyeshadow
You’ll really make your eyeshadow pop if you blend the Jumbo Eye Pencil into your eyelid before you apply your usual shadows. Simply draw onto your lid, and then blend with your finger. Follow up with your favourite powder shadow. If you are like me and find your eyeshadow creases really easily, add an eye primer before you apply the Jumbo Eye Pencil - try the NYX Eyeshadow Base. If it gets in your lashes make sure to comb it out or just go over carefully with your mascara.
Don’t wear eyeshadow? There are so many other ways to use this pencil! One of the most popular ways to use it is to brighten up your eyes, and you’ll be surprised by just how fresh and awake this makes you look. Simply line your waterline with the pencil – you may want to blend it a little with a cotton bud or your finger if you find the line too stark and bright.
Brightening Corners Of Eye
Lining the waterline is part one of brightening your eyes – and highlighting the corners of your eyes is the second part! Dot the Jumbo Eye Pencil onto the skin next to the corner of your inner eye, and blend with your finger. Instant brightness!
You can also use this pencil to hide dark circles. You’ll need to apply this before your foundation, because unless you’re really pale you’re going to end up with quite obvious white circles under your eyes. Simply dot onto your skin, and carefully blend with your finger. Then apply your regular foundation on top. Let me know how you go with this one!
Put the finishing touch on your eyes and sharpen your brows by highlighting your brow bone. Draw a line underneath your eyebrow with your Jumbo Eye Pencil and then blend it in with your finger. This helps to make your eyes and brows look cleaner and more professional.
I’m sure you’ll find at least one use for your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil – and if you didn’t get one, then this is the perfect time to head to Target and pick one up!
You’ll need to use a large sharpener to sharpen your NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, as it won’t fit into a regular sized sharpener. You might be a little scared because the packaging is plastic, but if you watch the video below you’ll see it really is possible to sharpen this pencil.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are available at Target Australia and retail for $9.95.
