Are you a fan of Maja Salvador’s eye makeup looks? I know I am. Yesterday, I posted two selfies on my Facebook Page looking like the Filipina actress. She is currently under the limelight with her lead role in the teleserye (Filipino for drama series), Wild Flower. She plays a prominent business woman seeking revenge against the Ardiente family – old money, powerful, evil – for what they have done to her own family. Dramatic, right?

Playing with a Pop of Color
Anyway, I’m not really a fan of hers nor of the show (except for the WildFlower memes, I love those) but I do love the makeup looks she dons. Usually, on Wild Flower, you will see Maja Salvador wearing neutral eye colors paired with long lashes. On her lip, it would either be something rosy or pink, or it would be the classic red. I decided to play this look up and add a pop of color.
Face of the Day with Blue Eyeliner and Neutral Eye Makeup
If you’re wondering why I look angry, it’s because I have vowed revenge against an evil family LOL. But, moving on, the key is to really make your eyes pop, because, well, that’s the first thing you notice about Maja Salvador when she’s all glammed up – her eyes.
Extended Blue Eyeliner on the Lower Waterline
To make my eyes pop, I applied white eyeliner on my lower waterline, extended it outwards, and then I set the eyeliner with electric blue eyeshadow from one of my palettes.
Makeup Tip: If you don’t have colored eyeliner, all you have to do is purchase a white eyeliner. You can set it with purple, red, yellow or whatever eyeshadow color you prefer. Just be careful to do the setting with an angled eyeliner brush. You don’t want fall out to go inside your eye.
