Zao's range of pencils for eyes, lips and eyebrows are soft, gentle and hypoallergenic with deep, long lasting pigmentation. Safe for use on delicate mucous membranes, these pencils are multi-purpose. Organic certified formulas, respectful of your skin, carefully crafted for sensitive eyes and skin. Suitable for contact lens wearers.
Instructions for use: The eye pencil is perfect to emphasise your look. Apply at the edge of the eyelashes of each eyelid for an intense look. Draw a line of varying thickness starting from the outer corner. Blend a bit the line on the lower eyelid with less intensity for a balanced look. Apply eye pencil before eyeshadow.
The lip liner allows you to draw your lips and is best used in conjunction with a Zao lipstick or gloss to prevent bleeding or smudging. Powder with Zao mineral silk or compact powder to fix the line.
The eyebrow pencil makes your look more intense. Brush eyebrows up and down and redraw them, following the natural direction of your brow hairs. Powder with Zao mineral silk or compact powder to fix the line.
Zao beauty tips for eye pencils: If you're tired, do not wear makeup on the lower eyelid, as it accentuates dark circles. For a perfect "doe eye" effect, trace the outline of your eye with an upward movement, accentuating the outside line.
Zao beauty tips for lip pencils: Draw the outline of the lips before applying the lipstick or gloss. Start with the Cupid's Bow (the "V" of the upper lip), and the middle of the lower lip. Then draw from the corners of the lips to connect the points.
Zao beauty tips for eyebrow pencils: If your face is oval, choose the eyebrows with natural curves. For round faces, increase the angle to "break" the roundness. If your face is long, choose long and slightly accented eyebrows. Finally, if your face is square, make sure you set a "soft" curve to soften facial features.
