And she’s literally all of us
Sephora can be a terrifying place. There’s just something about those black and white walls, shiny new products and pumping music that makes you spiral out of control and want to try ALL of the things.
Just ask Zoey Deutch.
The actress recently took to Instagram Stories, sharing THE most relatable (and goddamn hilarious) evidence of her own post-Sephora madness – the notorious makeup-ridden hand.
Fact: No one leaves Sephora without their hand looking like this – it’s just a given.
Swatching makeup is not only hella fun, but it’s the best way to suss out if it’s the right product for you. At places like Sephora, where tester products run rampant, this method can save you a lot of time and money. Especially if you’re on the hunt for a new liquid eyeliner. The word ‘help’ on Zoey’s hand says it all.
Choosing a liquid eyeliner is no easy feat and while most colours are true to their shade names, it can be hard to know which type of formulas will actually stay on your lids/give you clean lines for that perfect flick.
Our tip? Draw a line on the back of your hand, wait a second, and then rub it with your finger. If the liner smudges a little bit then this is a good sign, however if it smears all over it’ll probably end up travelling under your eyes – not a good time!
To help you get started on your search, check out some of the latest liquid eyeliners that’ll seriously up your eye makeup game.
