Pink Fong, Marketing Manager of Maybelline Malaysia, explained during the product launch that the BIG EYES MASCARA is designed specifically to solve common problems women encounter when trying to achieve the ‘Big Eyes’ look. “One of the biggest concerns Asian women face when using makeup is how to play up the eyes. Everyone wants to have bigger eyes, or the ‘Big Eye’ effect. However, many of us face the same problems, such as small eyes, droopy eyelids, short eyelashes, or even lashes that just won’t curl properly, no matter how many times you try!”
To solve these problems, BIG EYES Mascara provides the simple solution by offering 2 types of brushes: the Big Brush, with its full bristles, is perfect for creating ultra-lush volume and ‘push-up’ effect on lashes; and the Micro Brush has an ultra-fine 2mm width that allows you to precisely brush and coat even the tiniest lashes, especially for hard-to-reach corners and lower lashes.
Jojo Tan, Senior Product Executive of Maybelline Malaysia highlighted how to use the wonderful new mascara to get perfect big eyes instantly. “Curl your lashes first and coat the upper lashes evenly with the Big Brush for dramatic volume – this addresses those with straight lashes; even if your upper lashes are short, you can use the Micro brush to define them without smudging before using the Big Brush to build volume and create dramatic effect. To complete the look, use the Micro Brush to reach the inner corners and lower lashes – this especially helps when you have short, fine lower lashes or droopy eyelids. Regardless of the problem, the result is 2X bigger eyes!” she said.
The fashion industry plays a big part in inspiring makeup trends, and Maybelline New York fully understands how fashion and beauty go hand in hand. Taking trends from the catwalk to the sidewalk, Maybelline New York offers modern women with stylish shades, innovative formulas and revolutionary textures at an affordable price, thus allowing them to transform themselves effortlessly and beautifully.
In conjunction with the roll-out of BIG EYES MASCARA, Maybelline New York invited blogger fashion designer Kittie Yiyi to style the models at the launch with outfits from her Pre-Fall Collection. Each of the models was styled according to one of the three Maybelline New York ‘Big Eyes’ Look with her fun and quirky designs.
