Hi everyone, as I have struggled with eyeliner running and smearing all around my eyes (panda alert!) I thought I would share my review I did on the Chanel stylo yeux waterproof eyeliner. I know it is Chanel so it is not the cheapest out there but it is so worth it, I promise!
If you check out my blog you will see pictures of how it looked after a long day out and you can also see where you can purchase it etc.
For all those who are having problems with smudging eyeliner try a gel liner. It works really well and can do the same thing as a liquid eyeliner giving a strong line but you can still smudge it like a pencil. It holds to the shape you give it and will stick all day.
Gel liner used to be something you could only really get from high end brands but recently 'drugstore' brands have been making them too. I know rimmel does one and I think maybelline does too!
I'm a beauty blogger so I do quite a bit with makeup on a regular basis. If you want any advice feel free to message me.

The mascara was the key thing I noticed in all of the pics. Maybe i should try brown mascara so it's not so dark and thick, esp since I have small eyes anyway. It's the flawless glossy look that I love which comes from the foundation. What's the difference between chiseling and highlighting?! Chiseled is what i'm going for (i think) because I wear my hair middle parted so it's important to have my face look symmetrical as crazy as that sounds..like i always have to make sure my eyebrows are neat and stuff.
Thank you for going to the effort!!
Go to Bobbi Brown, they do free makeup lesson and you're not obligated to buy anything unless you choose too. A makeup artist will consult you on how to achieve the look you want if you want purchase the products. If not you can use what you learned to cheaper products. All well to Google but I think you need practical help. Bodyshop does the same and MAC does it for £30 which you can claim back on products.
Bought my first make-up products today! Had a consultation with a lovely lady at the no.7 counter in Boots and was given a make-over and lots of great advice. Would recommend it to anyone who looks at make-up and doesn't know where to begin (that was certainly me eight hours ago).
Had fun reading through this thread so thanks Beautiful nails and creative minds abundant. Personally now trying to decide what Rimmel nail polishes to get once my nails have grown a bit more.

Those talking about the UD NAKED palettes.. I have number 1 and Basics, what is naked 2 like? :O
I've got the original one and the naked 2, and I think the biggest and most important difference is that shades in naked 2 is a lot more cold. The colors are more taupe, and I like the naked 2 better than the first one mostly because I like taupe. Still like and use the first one though!

I don't use kohl eyeliner, but I want a black eyeliner that will look quite soft underneath my eyes for a everyday wear that won't end up down my face. Any suggestions?
If you want a soft look try using black or a dark coloured eyeshadow under the eye applied with a flat eyeshadow brush, it looks lovely and soft and the bonus is because its a powder it doesn't run at all!
I'm curious as to what kind of brushes people use because most of the big brands are US based or from certain brands which charge extortionate prices, are there any decently-priced brushed that we can get that are a good quality?
