made up

It's a slow news day.
By which I mean, I haven't taken pictures of my Guccis, nor my CKane for Topshops, and I should be doing work, but dammit I want to blog.

Last weekend I spent an obscene amount of money (read: 27 whole british pounds) on Mac liquid (in a pot..?) eyeliner, and a brush with which to apply it.
Lemme tell you this - it is worth it.

So, in essence, this post is designed to tell you how amazing these things are.
But let me put it to you this way: are you one of those people who can't wear eyeliner??
I am.
I whack it on of a morning, and a couple of hours later it's gathered into a REAL ATTRACTIVE crease under my eye which makes me look approx 10 times older than I am. (Which would make me a sprightly 210 years old...)
So I figured I'd go all out.
I can do do Winehouse-esque flicks, recreate mental catwalk looks (if I so choose) and genreall wear eyeliner every day....
Yeah it smudges, but it doesn't delve into the dreaded under-eye crease, and it only smudges after many hours/an undisclosed number of alcomaholic beverages.
Any other words, it is genius.

In light of this amazing make-up finding, I though it fitting to share the other contents of my makeup bag. The must-haves, if you will.

Eyelash curlers. Ridiculously cheap (£1!£1!) concealer which is amazing and better than the mid-priced malark I used to buy. Rimmel matte powder; for those shiny days (everyday.). Mac blusher (which I've had for at least a year and a half, and it's still got plenty of life left in it) + H&M blusher brush.

I live for these things.
Still, I need to find an excellent foundation and mascara. I tend to buy a different one every time I need one (currently using ...some Maybelline one, and Lash Stiletto or something. The mascara is a bit useless, but I refuse to give up on it, because I paid for it dammit. The foundation is alright, actually. Might buy it again.).

So, any recommendations for my oily skin and silly eyes that like to collect products in attractive crevices?

If you want to wear eyeshadow, or make things stick to your eyes better, invest in some primer. I use Urban Decay's Primer Potion, because it's awesome and it's only a tenner. It seems a lot of money, because it's so small, but one tube lasted me a year. It stops everything creasing, seriously, it's awesome!

L'oreal Telescopic Mascara and Rimmel Sexy Curves are both brilliant mascaras.
And GOSH, at Superdrug's X-ceptional Wear Make up is the foundation I swear by. If I'm having a particularly bad skin day I mix it on my face with a bit of Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.

I'll stop waffling now, promise :)
love Blakey xo
