It’s spooky season, so it’s time to take every excuse you can to dress up and stand out in your upcoming virtual Halloween party. If you’re up to taking your makeup game to the next level, let me introduce you to water-activated eyeliners. Also known as cake eyeliners, these colorful discs look like eyeshadow pots and act like watercolor. Once you place a wet brush into the pot, the product becomes a creamy liquid that dries up into a clean matte finish after you’ve applied it on your skin.
Channel your inner MUA and create your own music-video-ready eye looks with these pigmented pots. What better time to be up for the challenge while we’re at home, am I right?
Pastel Meteor Liners from Sundays Moderne Beauty
Named after its founder’s appreciation of warm Sundays spent with her family, Sundays Moderne Beauty takes pride in every product they release to be ethically made and easy to use. Coming with a wide range of pastel colors, you can create ethereal looks with the local beauty brand’s smudge-proof and transfer-resistant Pastel Meteor Liners. Be that stunning fairy princess, mermaid or even unicorn catching all the looks in your next Halloween Zoom party. They’re vegan-friendly, cruelty-free—and did we mention that they glow under UV light? The Pastel Meteor Liner set retails for P349 on their website.
If you’re looking for long-lasting pigmented eyeliners where proceeds help someone in need, then Hue Obsession may just be your go-to. Following the release of their first two collections last month, the local cruelty-free beauty brand aims to give back to the community by making each product launch a beneficiary project. Aside from their goal of empowering creatives with makeup, they recently donated fifty percent of their funds from their first two collections to jeepney drivers in Caloocan City. Don the bewitching looks of a glammed up alien or transform into a glow-in-the-dark skeleton with the seven bright neon colors of their Acid Trip Liners, all for a good cause.
“More than a local beauty brand, Hue Obsession is a community that empowers local, up and coming creatives who use makeup to express themselves. We’re all about giving artists a platform along with the proper tools needed to channel the artist within them,” they told us. The Acid Trip Liners retail at P149 per pot on Shopee.
Loved by makeup artists from all over the world, Suva Beauty constantly aims to redefine and reinvent traditional makeup. If you’re down to paint all over your body and go as a psychedelic mutant this spooky szn, you can use the intense pigmentation of the Hydra Liners not just on your face but also as body art together with the Hydra FX. Both products perform the same and come in opaque, chrome, matte and UV activated finishes depending on the shades—the Hydra Liners were just designed specifically for the eyes.
Aside from using a moist brush to apply the product, Suva Beauty’s CEO and founder Shaina Azad says that professional makeup artists can apply them through an airbrush and create new shades. The Hydra Liners and Hydra FX retail at P1,335 per pot in BeautyMNL. (They also have more shades and a Hydra FX Palette up on their website.
