BEAUTY BASICS | The Winged Eye Liner

Tuesday, 22 November 2011


Today marks the start of a new back to basics Beauty Series I'll be filming and posting about. I'm really excited about this, as it's been a while since I posted about beauty related stuff! I'm hoping it'll help people who aren't sure where to start when it comes to things beauty/makeup related!

To kick off, the most requested tutorial... ever. The Winged Eyeliner!

Here are my favourite Eye Liners...

In the Tutorial, I show you how to achieve three of my favourite Winged Eye Liner Looks...

This tutorial was great! One thing I'd like to mention is that it is nice to see that you have blemishes, I know that we all loathe blemishes, but I always think youtubers (makeup gurus) have perfect skin, but really, everyone is human. And the fact that you have them, yet you're still confident and obviously beautiful makes you that much more relatable and inspiring! :)

Aww! you seem like you're in a great mood here! Glad you are feeling better Shirley!

Thanks for sharing!

I suppose I'll go on over to the actual video comments to leave a suggestion..LOL

Looks really nice. Definitely taking that on board - I've been looking for a way to apply my eye liner so my eyes look a bit slimmer. I have used a method before, but I think I'm going to actually try yours, to see if I have any luck with it.

Ah.. You're just so gorgeous ^^
