When it comes to make-up, it’s safe to say that we all have our go-to products that suit our look; and we very rarely try anything new. This becomes more and more apparent when you become a mum – when those precious five minutes to fix your face before heading out the door with the kids, leave little time for experimenting with new make-up and styles.
If, like me, you are someone who likes things easy peasy, and prefer make-up that needs little or no re-application throughout the day, then a good eyeliner is the way forward. In my teens, I was never without it, and, now that I am that little bit older – and need a healthy dose of some magic to make my tired eyes look more awake – I am back to wearing eyeliner…..And I love it.
The difference this time is that I use a liquid eyeliner with a brush to achieve the perfect line. My favourite eyeliner brushes are Chantecaille’s Eyeliner Brush and Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyeliner Brush. It is the preciseness that you can get with a brush that makes the eyeliner so easy to apply and leaves a cleaner, sharper looking line. My go-to liquid eyeliners are Illamasqua’s Precision Gel Liner, MAC’s Liquid Eyeliner and Lancome’s Artliner liquid Eyeliner. If, like me, you find that you make mistakes and make one line thicker, thinner, longer or shorter – have no fear – just make sure you have a cotton wool bud to hand to erase any mistakes!
