A Frosty Silver Eyeliner Guide

silverliners

Sometimes I get hung up on finding a product. I’m still searching for the perfect deep, matte purple full-coverage lipstick and a perfect yellow shimmer eyeshadow that doesn’t come across as gold. The other day it was silver eyeliner. Luckily, there are many options out there. I love silver eyeliner when it is used to “open” up the eyes (pencil formulas). I also love it as the “first” layer with a thinner stripe of black liquid liner applied below it. I love silver with deep, dramatic lips. Here is… Continue reading

Tons & Tons of Black Liner: Get The Look of Françoise Hardy

Francoise Hardy

Françoise Hardy has it all. Talent, brains, beauty. That’s why she is one of my favorite style icons. When I had my blunt bangs and a haircut much like this one, I used to wear heavy eye makeup like this. It was such a cool look. The eyeliner isn’t easy if you’ve never done it before. I suggest practice. Once you get it down, you can get this look in under 10 minutes from my experience. These are the products that I use to get this look… Continue reading

Revlon Illuminance Creme Eye Shadows in Moonlit Jewels Review

Cheap Secret:

I’ve tried quite a few of these Revlon Illuminance Creme Eye Shadow kits. I really like them. That’s why I have so many. They wear nicely as a shadow base and create a lot of depth.

These cream shadows are all super shimmery. They aren’t greasy and they usually stay in place. I need to add that… Continue reading

Best Black Eyeliners: Dedicated to Tura Satana

I love Tura Satana. She is the reason for my haircut. She is one of my favorite style icons. She is one lovely bad-ass, the queen of the 60s B-films. One thing that Tura rocked other than ass kicking moves, the perfect body, blunt bangs, and an amazing attitude, was the heavy black liner. Every time I use a heavy hand with black liner, I think of Miss Satana’s oh so delicious evil look.

There are a ton of black liner formulas on the market. They all have a time… Continue reading | 1 Comment

Size Does Matter: TheBalm Pick-Up Liners Mini Eye Pencil Set Review

I’m so not in love with this product. Personally, I think it is crap with an $18 price tag. I’m a sucker for packaging and unfortunately the packaging is cute but it is a tiny, flimsy, cardboard box. The “purse friendly” packaging is just a box that you’d recycle with any other product. Inside are three of the smallest eyeliners on the planet. Now, they are about as long as two of the included sharpener, like two inches long in total length. I’ve seen larger, so I know. I don’t know where they… Continue reading | 1 Comment
