You may or may not know this, but pre-Hello October Suzie knew nothing about makeup. She had no brushes, hated foundation, concealer and never filled her eyebrows in - *gags a little*... All I wore was eyeliner and mascara, heavily, might I add.
Things are obviously very different now, and the eyes are a little more low key than they use to be. But recently I've been taking inspiration from my 18 year old self, and picked up the kohl liners and set to work.
Now I didn't go completely base free, I used the origins planscrition concealer to cover up the major problem areas, and then applied my Kevin Acouin sculpting powder and popped on a sheer wash of the Laura Mercier blush in Lush Nectarine.
I then used my naked palette to shade, highlight and contour, kept my usual liquid liner on the upper lid and gently smudged my Clarins kohl eyeliner on the bottom lid and across the waterline.
For lips I kept things simple with one of my favourite nudes: Topshops Desert. Laaavely! And that my friends is the end of that makeup story! I've actually been loving kohl eyeliners a lot recently - even if they are a bugger to remove!
