I don't wear a lot of makeup. A little mascara, and lipgloss, and some neutral shadow is a normal makeup routine for me. But with the holidays coming there will be parties and opportunities to get all fancied up, so when I recently had a girls' night out with some of my besties I asked my sister to come over and help me do something a little different with my makeup.
I bought some liquid eyeliner because I really wanted to try the cat eye-liner look (even though I hate cats). My sister flaunts this feline look regularly so I knew if anybody could do it it would be her.
Oh, and PS, here's a tip I thought everyone already knew, but since my sister didn't I thought maybe there are others who don't either. Anyway, this little trick I do to curl my eyelashes: heat the eyelash curler up with your hairdryer before you curl your lashes, not too much though, maybe 10 seconds. It heats the metal of the curler and it acts like a mini curling iron for your eyelashes. Just be careful though, it can get too hot pretty quickly and you could burn yourself if you're not paying attention.
Don't worry, I'm not dead. I just don't have any lip color on yet. You're supposed to be looking at the eyes! I think they turned out well, definitely "pretty" and not "trashy" which I specified in my request. Some heavy-ish eyeliner, and more eyeshadow than I've ever worn in my life.
Oh hey, did you know I got bangs?
