If I was stuck on a deserted island, the one product I would want with me would be eyeliner. Forget a hair brush, forget foundation, forget mascara, but give me eyeliner! It's my favorite makeup product to put on and probably because I spend the most time on my eyes. Most days I don't wear foundation but I always have eyeliner on. I consider my eyes one of my best features, so I just like to play them up--and I do that with a pencil eyeliner.
I'm really no good at eye shadows and I feel because my eyes are on the exotic side that too much eyeshadow or bottom liner is just too much and I feel overdone. However I would love to learn how to blend and maybe change my makeup look a little, but whenever I do try, I always chicken out and end up taking some off before leaving the bathroom.
Last week I ran out of a cheapie eyeliner I had bought from Walgreens, so I loaded up the girls and headed to Target to pick up some things--besides diapers and baby stuff this time. One of the first things I spotted in the makeup section was the NYX brand. At only $4.99 I was intrigued after I swatched it. Let me just say, that I am loving this eyeliner! It goes on super easy and stays put! I haven't had any issues with smudging and it comes off easily with eye makeup remover.
With just eyeliner
Completed look. I like to add a little bit of black shadow right on top of my eyeliner. It tends to bring my eyes out and will give a fuller lash look. Mascara was added after this and then concealer, L'Oreal lip gloss and NARS blush.
