The Makeup: All About The Eyes

You may or may not know this, but pre-Hello October Suzie knew nothing about makeup. She had no brushes, hated foundation, concealer and never filled her eyebrows in – *gags a little*… All I wore was eyeliner and mascara, heavily, might I add.

Things are obviously very different now, and the eyes are a little more low key than they use to be. But recently I’ve been taking inspiration from my 18 year old self, and picked up the kohl liners and set to work.

Now I didn’t go completely base free, I used the origins planscrition concealer to cover up the major problem areas, and then applied my Kevin Acouin sculpting powder and popped on a sheer wash of the Laura Mercier blush in Lush Nectarine.

I then used my naked palette to shade, highlight and contour, kept my usual liquid liner on the upper lid and gently smudged my Clarins kohl eyeliner on the bottom lid and across the waterline.

For lips I kept things simple with one of my favourite nudes: Topshops Desert. Laaavely! And that my friends is the end of that makeup story! I’ve actually been loving kohl eyeliners a lot recently – even if they are a bugger to remove!

    looks gorgeous! I am always a bit nervous to put black on my waterline in case it makes my eyes look small. But it looks great on you!

    Isn't it awful looking back at times from when you knew nothing about makeup! I bought powder from the pound shop, bit my nails and had purple hair. Yikes.

    This is a gorgeous look! I used to be a complete eyeliner fiend but I swore off it in the Summer and haven't looked back! It really changes the way you look if you're used to seeing yourself covered in eyeliner all the time.

    You look soooo pretty!! I can never be bothered with eyeliner unless its a big night out! I find that some eyeliners go really flaky and then I'm forever paranoid. I think a kohl liner is going on my to buy list!
