I am faithful to my black eyeliner and black kohl pencil and as my friends will testify, I never leave home without it. The trouble is, I always have the same look. I’ve tried different coloured kohl pencils and dabbled with eyeshadow – nothing major- just pink and gold! I hope for a look of radiance and beauty but in truth, the look is closer in resemblance to Barbie; colourful and sparkly. What’s more, neither eyeshadow or coloured kohl pencil lasts until the end of my evening. By the time I return home, I look more like Cinderella and just like my makeup, all hope of being the fairest of them all has faded too!
Here’s a blog that explains where I’ve been going wrong. I need to use a primer first, something I thought was only meant for walls. That way, I create a base for my eyeshadow that will help it to stay in place.
So have I been converted? I don’t think so. I love the finished look of the peacock eye (post 3) featured in the attached blog. But somehow I’m not convinced that it’s a look that compliments every eye colour. But if unlike me you are brave enough to wear bold colours, I think the tips on how to apply your eyeshadow correctly are fantastic and the final look is flawless!
The one tip I have taken up is applying kohl pencil or eyeliner on my waterline rather than on the inner rim of my eye. The waterline is apparently just where your lower lash meets your eye rim. My kohl now has the ability to stay put the entire day and doesn’t need reapplying. However, I have to avoid any situation that has the potential for tears otherwise Panda eyes big time it is.
