Eyes:

Inner Corner: B Never Too Busy… – B Delight
Lid: BarryM – #88 Winter Berry
Crease: E.L.F Mineral Eyeshadow – Royal
Outer V: NYX Ultra Pearl Mania – Charcoal
Mascara: Rimmel Sexy Curves – Black
Eyeliner (1st Layer): MAC Fluidline – Silverstroke
Eyeliner (2nd Layer): eBay Infinity Liner – Black

Don’t know if it’s the ‘right’ thing to do, but I love layering my eyeliner like this.  I’m a total eyeliner fiend and have so many, it’s surely the only way I’ll ever get through them all!

Seriously, it’s a great way to wear a pop of bright colour along the lashline, without commiting yourself to making a statement with it.  I often wear gold and blue eyeliners in this way.

Ok, that distraction worked for about 40seconds… hurry up Hump Day!

    This is gorgeous, my dear! I love the idea of layering the eyeliner. It gives the look an extra edge. :)

    I’m pretty sure I’ve got Winter Berry, but I am loving the eyeliner layering, who cares if it’s the right thing to do or not, it looks great!

  3. Connie says:

    this is so pretty! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this combination before. it’s so gorgeous

  4. Connie says:

    Also, thanks for the idea on how to wear two liners at once. I usually do the colored one thick and the black thin closer to the lash line. It didn’t occur to me that I can just do the black on the outer portion

    this is so lovely. your liner looks awesome.

    off to look at nyx on ebay now!

  6. Redtiger21 says:

    Very pretty! I also like the liner idea- I’ve done a line of black and then a line of colour higher up, but your way looks much better and seems easier to wear for daytime :)

  13. @Connie – Thanks, I really like it as a way of wearing coloured eyeliner without making too much of a statement!

    @redtiger21 – Thanks x It’s easier to do… just lay the colour down first and you can be a bit more heavy handed that way!

  15. @Tali – thank you my love, aren’t those pigments beautiful!?

  16. @ndoodles – it is a bit Xmas-y isn’t it?! I shall have to remember it for the big day itself!
