Yesterdays makeup

Ok so yesterdays make up is exactly the same base as yesterday but with different eyes this is as close as I get to a normal look as in it is the makeup I do the most. I am a big fan of the retro look and the winged eyeliner is a classic. I use liquid eyeliners as I find a pencil drags to much on my skin and never goes on well. The one used here is
Bobby Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner (black ink)
applied with
Mac 210 Precise Eyeliner Brush

The one think I forgot to talk about last time was my eyebrows, I look completely different with out my eyebrows made up and feel really uncomfortable without them. I over-plucked many years ago as so many of us do and now they are really patchy but they are so important for framing the face I always make sure they are done.
I gave up using eyebrow pencils years ago after training to be a beautician, one of our classes was with a professional make-up artist and she taught us that a better effect is always achieved with power and a brush. It is less harsh, easier to apply and with a wider range of colours in shadow you can get one that is just right for you.
At the moment I am using the cute little palette from Clarins and while the brush inside is good I am stuck on my Ruby and Millie angled brush though as it's what I have always used

  1. Love the winged look on your eyes. Somehow it never work on my eyes. Perhaps I'm just not doing it right. :)
