I have been on the hunt for a great black liner for the longest of times, something that could give me that fantastic neat winged/cat eye look. The NYX pencil/pen liners I love so much are too soft to give that edgy line and I have tried various other products including gel, pen, liquid. Finally I opted for the Eyeko skinny liquid eyeliner which was on sale through Asos, lucky me! Here’s a really simple neutral look.
URBAN DECAY Naked Palette
EYEKO skinny liquid eyeliner
COVERGIRL lashblastfusion mascara
MAYBELLINE Fit Me Foundation in 310 (sun beige)
MAC blot powder
I start off with foundation, targeting problem areas that need evening out such as around the mouth, nose, forehead and set it with powder. I use just a minute amount, giving the face a clean fresh look.
With the eyes I’m using my favourite Naked Palette from Urban Decay whom Dom from belledemoiselle managed to grab for me when Sephora Malaysia opened up (thanks girly!) to create a ‘my eyes but better’ look. Base layer is Naked, a neutral light brown color, which I sweep all over the lids up to the brow. Follow it with Buck which is darker than Naked and contour lightly with Hustle, a kind of purpley brown, concentrating this along the crease and over corner of the eyes. I then press Sidecar, a shimmery light taupe just on the balls of the lids. I am more than happy to leave this as an every day look, I use it fairly regularly and pair it up or down with any of the other variations offered by the palette. I also love using a coloured liner for a bright pop. For this particular look I went in with the EYEKO liner, carefully staying close to the lash line, tapering in at both the inner and other corners followed by a good dose of mascara. I left the lower lash line alone except for mascara.
I have forgotten what I used on the lips….probably NYX’s round lipstick in tea rose followed by gloss.
