HER SHOW MAY BE CALLED INSECURE, BUT WRITER, ACTRESS AND ALL ROUND BADASS ISSA RAE IS ANYTHING BUT. AND THESE BOLD BEAUTY LOOKS? EQUALLY BOSS!
Some days you want to do the least, not the most. ‘A cat’s eye says, “I’m putting in eort” – and it doesn’t matter what else I’m wearing,’ says Issa. A liquid liner with a wheel-like applicator (it looks like a mini pizza cutter), such as Revlon Colorstay Exactify Liquid Liner (R199 at Edgars.co.za), makes the look even more eortless. For a perfectly smooth line, use one inger from the opposite hand to lift the eye gently, creating a taut canvas. Intimidated by liquid liner? Trace the shape with a pencil irst.
On nights when you’re tempted to trade in your friends plans for the couch, rock metallic lips. ‘This puts me in a life-of-the-party mood, even if I don’t feel that way,’ says Issa. Stumped on shades? Rose gold is lattering for all (try MAC Viva Glam Lipstick (R250) Satin), gunmetal looks great on cool undertones, and bronze is hot on warm complexions.
