FOTD 2! And my first EVER venture into eyeliner.

Yup, you read it right- I have never worn eyeliner before! I'd love to be able to do little cat flicks and line my eyes with lots of black pencil but it's never been something I thought I'd be particually good at. Lately, however, I've been more eager to try some kohl and liquid liners and was chuffed this morning when I discovered The Body Shop's Eye Definer in shade 01 black (I think this was a freebie with Instyle magazine a while back!)

Only having 10 minutes to do your make-up pre-lecture probably isn't the best time to try something new but, well, sod it! First, I applied a base of Clairns Beauty Balm and added the Avon concealer featured yesterday. Next I applied the mauve shade from the Jemma Kidd Eye Wardrobe Enchanted Summers set all over my eyelids. With a (not so!) steady hand, I applied the liner to lid and then applied one coat of Benefit's Bad Gal. Before leaving the house I applied a little Chanel brozer and a brilliant nude lipgloss from Taxi.

I'm actually really pleased with the result! As much as this isn't a dramatic look, it's quite different for me and I normally focus on my lips.

Do you girls have any tips for applying liner? I'd love to learn more.

  1. Oh hi there! Your blog is looking fantastic, I am following you for sure! Eyeliner is my only 'must have', even if I wear no other make up I have to wear eyeliner and mascara!


Thank you for your comment :)
