My favourite look to just whack on when I have a bit of time in the morning is smokey brown eyes, retro flick liner and red lips.  I also like to spend a bit of time contouring my cheeks, but the flash has mitigated the effect in these pics.

I love flicked eyeliner, it really makes my eyes look bigger and stand out, but it can be tricky to get the flicks to match, especially when my eyes are sisters rather than twins!  Practice makes perfect, eh?!


  1. what a great day look, with just the right amount of edge. Love it!

  2. lol! I totally get the sisters not twins thing, omg daily eyeliner becomes a chore cos of it!
    Love the look you did though =)


  3. My eyes are questionable cousins, let alone sisters! I still love VG Cyndi on you :)

  4. Very pretty! The Viva Glam Cyndi is gorgeous on your lips! I love Benefit's Erase Paste & Eye Bright! Their Powderflauge concealer is great too! :)

    You look stunning!

  5. Wow i wish i could pull off Viva Glam Cyndi as well as you do. It looks so pretty on u x

  6. I'm jealous of your eyebrows!!

  7. haha brilliant 'sisters rather than twins' love it!
    my liner is a pain in the ass as i have a slight droop on both sides...Nightmare xxx

  8. Love this look! So pretty! I can't ever get my eyeliner winged like yours! So jealous!


  9. @Lilllisal - thank you! Not sure how edgy I look though!
    @esteem - yeah I can't be doing with proper eyeliner every day!
    @Robyn - you make me laugh! I'm finding with age my eyes are becoming less symmetrical - tis sad! I love VG Cyndi but think they are/have discontinued it...hopefully they'll keep it on by popular demand!
    @Leslie - so many times I've almost been tempted by Powderflage but always resist!
    @Atia - aw thanks, because I've got small lips I can look odd in very bright red lippy, but Cyndi is just the right side of red for me!
    @Suzi - haha! I wish they were a little thicker! I hardly ever pluck them :s
    @Pixielashes - I try to make the flick follow the angle of the my lower lid, or to make your eyes seem more awake you could draw the flick out and up from your upper lid - I sometimes do it this way.
    @Savannah - Thank you! It always looks better 'head on' but can go a bit funny and uneven when you look down - a bit like the second pic!

    Thanks for all your sweet comments ladies! I really appreciate reading them! They brighten up my day :)
