Inika Eyeliner in peacock blue.
No vintage china plates were harmed during the making of this blog post. I can accomplish this sort of destruction all by myself.
An actual smile...must be the eyeliner.
So this is: Lily Lolo mineral foundation in Blondie, RMS UnCover Up, tiny bit of Waikiki bronzer (also by Lily Lolo) and Inkia Eyeliner in peacock blue.
See how this eyeliner matches my new earrings perfectly?
This is pretty much all of the jewellery I own: a mixture of gifts, vintage finds and hand-me-downs. Thank you to my lovely sister for the gold hoops from Silverado.
Pure genius. Why don't all eyeliners have a tiny sharpener in their lid?
I bought this azure eyeliner in rebellion. I needed to buy some dreary, bread and butter items from an online beauty store: conditioner and tampons, if you're interested.
But the thought of that parcel turning up at my front door was too sobering for a Sunday afternoon. So I added this slick of metallic cornflower blue, completely unnecessary, unwearable for work. This is intentional makeup, eighties film poster makeup, makeup for the first light of dawn, and getting a cappuccino from the only cafe that is open. This purchase was inspired by a natural and organic blog I love: 'No More Dirty Looks.' In their tutorial the eyeliner looks like a soft lilac shade, but in reality it is a true bright blue. It looks great if you have lightly tanned skin (I don't) and with shimmering bronzer: I used Lily Lolo's Waikiki, which is slightly too dark for me, so I wear just a tiny bit it with their Cherry Blossom blush.
I'm still slightly scared of eye makeup. I've only really mastered a wash of bronze eyeshadow. But a coloured waterline seems so much easier: not grungey, but fresh and modern. Perhaps what Debbie Harry would wear if she were starting Blondie now. The wearability of this eyeliner is good, but if I was wearing it from day to night I would top up. The texture is creamy, and the colour is highly pigmented.This blue matches my new glass earrings perfectly, and I am eyeing up their Green Lagoon and Purple Minx eyeliners as I write.
So an impromptu purchase...an unnecessary purchase...but one I regret? Not at all.
