A Chappaqua Native’s New Secret to Eyeliner Stenciling

Create a perfect smoky eye



If you get a little shaky when trying to get a smooth line around your eyes, you are not alone. Chappaqua native Beth Bender to the rescue with her ingenious eyeliner stencil that makes it much easier to create a perfect smoky eye, cat eye—à la Adele—or just a simple defining line. During her six-year stint as one of Bobbi Brown’s lead makeup artists, Bender saw so many clients struggle to draw the perfect line on their eyes that she was inspired to design and create a stencil to simplify the process. Just place the stencil over the eyelid with lashes poking through, close eye, and brush color on. Wipe the stencil clean, reverse, and do the other eye—easy as pie. Prices start at $18 for one set of stencils to $59.99 for a kit complete with stencils, eye shadows, gel liner, eyelash curler, and travel bag; available at Glo Beauty Bar in Mamaroneck, The Haven Spa in Pleasantville, and bethbenderbeauty.com.
