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!

    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

    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 :)

    @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!
