NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Makeup: Everyday Eyes

When it comes to eye makeup, I tend to go all out or not at all. Since I was 14 my makeup routine has been completely based around some serious lazy girl liner - varying in thickness and style over the years (with some crazy gothic cat eyes at the age off 15) - teamed with lashings of maxfactor mascara. There's very little room for new products in this routine, as most of my current eye makeup products have reached HG satus.

There's one thing I do tend to play around with, and that is my base/primer for pre liner eyelids, if I have a long day ahead I like to give my liner as much staying power as possible. I've tried a few different products including the Urban Decay Primer Potion, but so far I've found nothing works quite like the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Sand. This stuff is the furthest from creamy when used on my skin, but for blemishes and using as a base it actually works very well and keeps everything in place for a little bit longer.

For my everyday eyeliner I will never be without the Collection Fast Stroke Liquid Liner in the stash. Cheap and cheerful, with a good matte finish and decent lasting power - why would you stray? Everyone applies their liner differently, but I like to start with the middle and work out to the end of the flick, and then back in. It's never perfect but I'll be dammed if i'm going to wake up 15 minutes earlier each day in order to get it just right - ceebs.

You can give me a new mascara any day but I'll still always come back to Maxfacor whether I use the Masterpiece Macara or False Lash Effect ... or the waterproof counter part of FLE you see above, I just lurveeee full thick lashes.

My 15 year old self and her scene kid cat eyeliner may be well and truly in the past, but I have a feeling my love for liquid liner will always live on - have you ever seen a 90 year old woman wearing eyeliner? Might be worth checking back here in 70 years time...

  3. I used to adore Maxfactor mascaras and lately they've just completely fallen off my radar. Might have to pick one up again! Your eye makeup is gorgeous.

  10. Love your eyeliner it really suits you, I hardly ever wear it just because it makes my eyes look very small, unfortunately. Reverently I've been loving the Nars Smudge Proof Primer, I wore it under the Chanel Emerveille cream shadow on a 9 hour flight and it stayed put not one crease, definitely recommend it :-)

  16. I adore people who can pull of a thick eye liner look - I always tend to go back to just wearing mascara or just a really thin line. ;-) x
