For a next-level cat eye, this is the way to go. Because it’s thicker than your average liquid liner, it will produce more dramatic results. Plus, it’s super long-lasting.

Contour and lift blush technique

We teased you earlier about this, and now we’re revealing how it’s done. Simply put, this technique involves applying your blush not on the apples of your cheeks but above them at a slant angle.

This will create a lifting effect that will put the focus on your eyes and it will also have a contouring effect that would make your cheekbones look higher.

Here are some blushes that you could pay in 4 installments, interest-free with Zilch.

Cheek to Chic Blush from Charlotte Tilbury

Coming in a variety of pink and peach shades, these blushes mimic natural rosy cheeks. That’s why you’ll look like you’re actually blushing when you use this. 

Honest Beauty Crème Cheek and Lip Color from Walgreens

This easy-to-apply cream blush will come in handy when you’re on the go. It also doubles as a lip tint, which of course, is not just convenient but also in vogue. Did we mention that monochromatic looks are also all the rave right now?

Glossy Lips

Glossy lips are making a comeback. Baby pink, glossy lips, to be exact. But that’s not to discourage you from trying other shades.

Because bold eyeshadow and statement blush are trendy, a muted, softer yet shiny lip color balances everything out.

Have a look at these lip glosses that you could buy now, pay later with Zilch.

Gen Nude Lip Lacquer from Bare Minerals

This lip lacquer is like frosting. The icing on top to complete your look. It also comes in a wide range of nude shades that are universally flattering.
