Ollie Girl Makeup Guard Card

1 comment


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

I'm not a professional makeup artist but I do like to play with makeup on myself and on others and the Makeup Guard Card by Ollie Girl is really nice to have in a kit.
This plastic durable card that can easily be wiped clean with a wet wipe, works great for eyeshadow application, giving you a cut crease look, and keeping the shadow from falling on your cheeks.
Of course, you have to blend when using this product but the placement of the shadow is accurate on both eyes.

The Ollie Girl card is also great for mascara application for the upper and lower lashes and keeping the lids clean.
When I apply mascara on others and I want the lashes to be fully extended and coated, I use a business card to achieve it but then I have to throw it away because all the gunk is left on the card.
But with this makeup guard card, I achieve great lashes and it wipes clean, easily making it reusable and sanitary.

Now for using the card for eyeliner application, it can be tricky but it can be achieved mainly for marking the start of your flick with the edge ruler it has etched on it.
This mini mini ruler etched on both sides of the card gives the option on how far you want to extend the flick for a dramatic cat eye or just to elongate the eye.
With this one practice is necessary and it really does not give you the winged look on its own, you need to mark the flick then draw the rest free hand.

Other than that, this card is really helpful when you using it for yourself or on others when you don't have a steady hand.

The company claims it's dish washer safe but I don't want to risk it. I some how wish this card was silicone so it can be flexible but it's still a nice product.
I like that two cards come in the pack, I received a pink one and a neon green one and it can be used to put liquid foundation on it for a mixing palette.

In the pictures below, I used it for my shadow application, upper and lower lashes, and top eyeliner which can also be used for bottom liner as well.
The nice thing about the Makeup Guard Card, is that you can use liquid, gel or shadow liner with a brush.
You can get the Ollie Girl makeup card on their site at olliegirl.com and see demos...









For this look on the eyes, I used my Estee Lauder palette and used only two colors the brown shade for lid and the crease and the beige color for the brown bone.
Then I used a black shadow from MAC for the liner with the 266 angle brush.
For Mascara, I used maybelline Great Lash And Billion Dollar Brows Clear brow gel.
