So I think I’m finally getting there with eyeliner. Over the years my struggle with the stuff has been a well documented one (see here), but I’ve really got to grips with a well-known tip that’s helped me master the feline flick. It’s nothing new and is a process I’ve proposed before but the tools and technique have just clicked into place and it’s now a look that I feel comfortable throwing on in a 5 minute window (before I needed more like 35 and the time it took to re-do my eye makeup from scratch 3 times on the clock).

It’s nice to see makeup mavens flock together and share our passion for copious amounts of lipsticks, MUJI storage and the newest ‘OMG, HG, need-it’ products. Case in point, last week’s ’10 Signs You’re a Beauty Addict’ post which had me belly-laughing for a full five minutes while taking in all the messages.
