When it comes to applying makeup, I need all the help I can get. It takes a village people! Unfortunately, I can’t call on the village every time I get ready. Luckily, I have some help from an essential eye makeup tool called The Makeup Guard, which nips two common eye makeup snafus.
One of my biggest pet peeves when I apply makeup is dealing with excess shadow that falls under my eye. It can be time consuming to remove, especially if glitter shadow is involved. The Makeup Guard has become a catch all for excess eye shadow.
Extended eyeliner has, and still is a challenge for me. I equate creating cat eyes and winged liner to geometry (and for the record, I was never good in geometry class). This tool really takes the work out of creating dramatic eye looks by providing an easy ruler for a perfectly lined eye. Simply hold the ruler side of the guard at the outer corner of the eye and lie the brush against card and draw out liner. It also works extremely well if you need help with lining the inner corners too.
