Runway Eyeliner Trend ~ Yay or Nay?


The latest eyeliner trend seen on the runways is angular and bold. A twist of of the Amy Winehouse trademark. Love it or hate it, we surely can't ignore it coz it's in every second fashion magazine nowadays.

Lakme Night Fever Collection also had a look similar to it, and since the time the collection was launched,  I had wanted to try out this look.



How to:
  • Used Urban Decay Primer Potion all over lid
  • Contoured my crease and highlighted brow bone with Mac Sculp & Shape powder
  • Applied a shimmery pink eyeshadow (BF 120 palette) on the lid and center of lower lashline
  • Used Lakme Black Impact Liner 
  • Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero on my waterline
  • Finished off with 2 coats of Bourjois Ultra Care Mascara on top and bottom lashes



I really like the Lakme Black Impact Liner. The brush is very thin and easy to work with. I heart the packaging too!

**With a bold eyeliner like that, I'd keep the rest of my face simple. Just a little bit of blush and/or bronzer and nudy-pink lipgloss. Shimmery pink eyeshadow adds a bit of femininity to the butch-looking eyeliner. 

P.S: Because of my hooded lids, I have to contour my crease especially when wearing a thick liner. Which means it's not a very necessary step :)



I actually like it. I think with the right outfit and accessories, it would look fabulous! But definitely a night time look, in my opinion. 


What about you all out there? Dare to wear it?

The Discreet French ~ Bourjois Rose Naturel French Manicure


First of all, me wants that cute little polka dotted Eiffel Tower she's holding! No stress ball for me, that will do =)

Now, about the Bourjois French Manicure in Rose Naturel. Why Rose Naturel? Because the liner is a subtle pink color, which looks discreet and neat (according to Bourjois)
French manicure in a box & in 3 simple steps:
  1. French Rose liner on the tips
  2. So Laque Rose lounge all over your nail
  3. Finish with the Fixant Brillant top coat




What makes this manicure kit special is the brush........


The tapered brush is made for a perfect at-home French manicure. Very very easy to work with!

Here's how the Rose Naturel set looks (Please excuse the un-filed discolored nails)......



I did them in a hurry so they're not so neat, but you get the idea.

There are 2 types of Bourjois French Manicure kits. This is the other one......

With White French Liner

If you want a French-French 'glamorous & sophisticated according to Bourjois' manicure, go for the white. But if you want a subtler 'are those your natural nails?' French, then pick up the Rose one. 
Your nails will look French with either one of them.

Okay, now I'll stop with the 'French'
