Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so what better time of year to look captivating?
BADgal Eyeliner, Benefit at Amazon, £12.51
I love a rock and roll look mixed with glamour and this BADgal (the clue is in the name) Eyeliner is perfect for achieving just that. It’s awesome.
Because my skin is often oily (so not a good look!), whenever I apply eyeliner it can smudge within a few hours and I end up looking like a cross between a panda and Alice Cooper. As that’s not a look I’m going for (and if it is, you’ll be the first to know) I’ve always stayed away from pencil eyeliners. Until now.
BADgal is great for lining eyes and getting a subtle day-time look. If you’re after a smouldering, smoky eye (a beauty treat for Valentine’s Day) this is super easy to blend and gently smudge. It’s lovely to use, even for eyeliner phobics like me!
Extreme Black Mascara, Alverde at dm-drogerie markt, £2.83
I adore black mascara so I had high hopes for this extreme black one. Often mascara can make your eyelashes feel hard and clumpy which is the opposite of what I’m going for. Fortunately, this mascara is made with über nourishing jojoba oil so it moisturises my lashes as well as making them look longer and thicker.
That isn’t even the best part… look at the price! A fabulous mascara for less than a price of a cup of hot chocolate? I’m sold!
