It had been a while for eyeliner and I. For the last year, my make-up has been all about subtle wafts of colour north of my lashes with the goal of creating hazy, smoky definition. Special occasions called for a bit of a tight line along my upper lashes or a touch of kohl in a waterline, but that aside I’d settled into the nice routine that looked a lot like this.
Last week I was feeling a bit experimental so cracked out a Bobbi Brown number and a Suqqu brush and had me some make-up fun. I was just playing, really – nowhere to go, nobody to see, just a little spare time on my hands and a lot of make-up to fiddle with.
After fifteen minutes, I looked like this:
Eyeliner was back in my good books and I’ve since been hitting it up every time I leave the house. Key in my liking it so much is the whole powder thing as it makes the process easy peasy – I just damp the end of my brush with a touch of water and apply the eyeliner, wait for it to dry and then take a cotton bud to soften edges. The finish is a lot less harsh than a liquid wing and takes far less skill/time. Now, my eyeliner and I are off to do some Christmas shopping…
