NYX Curve: Perfect No-Mess Liquid Eyeliner (Seriously!)

If there’s one look I’m always striving to perfect it’s the perfect winged eye.  Since the early days when my grandma and I would religiously watch every Audrey Hepburn movie, I’ve always wanted to mimic that  ultra-sophisticated yet fun and sexy look.

I’ve tried every form of eyeliner — from kohl pencil to liquid to cake.  And even though a few makeup remover-soaked q-tips have always been able to save me from an all-out  “I just got back from Fight Club” look, it’s always been a messy, laborious process.  That is of course until I discovered NYX The Curve Liner ($14.99)

This ergonomically shaped liner with a curved grip zone for precise application makes perfecting any liquid liner look as easy as putting on lip gloss.  It has a felt tip that dispenses just the right amount of color which comes out dark and pigmented, and does not bleed nor feather!  REJOICE!

To create a winged eye it only took me one swipe along my lash line and then I changed my grip (angling it upwards) and drew my wing.  Voila! I’m Audrey!  (Okay, maybe not… but at least it looked perfect and took me about 30 seconds. I’ll take it!)

Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Sexy Black Kitty, Meow!

Sometimes I have the worst luck…  Today I woke up all all ready and excited for my Google+ Hangout (If you don’t know what that it is, it’s like a video chat that is broadcasted live on Google+ and streams to YouTube).   It was hosted by the insanely beautiful (hate her!) Samantha Lim, Editor-in-Chief  of the huge online fashion magazine FashionIndiefeaturing myself,  Christina Farrell, amazing makeup artist and founder of the The Makeup Blogger, and Stacy Reid, Founder and CEO of Tinte Cosmetics (which thanks to Stacy’s generosity I will be trying soon!).

So what happened? Well, Murphy’s Law reared its ugly head and my Internet decided to take a hiatus. So, unfortunately I missed the first few minutes of the Hangout and once I finally got into the Hangout I faded in and out and even froze a couple times (I could hear the others saying, “She’s a frozen kitten!”).  Now my drama aside, Christina did an adorable tutorial for an 80s costume and Stacy walked through several different viable Halloween looks.  You should definitely check it out here.

After the Hangout was over, I figured it would simply be a waste of a good kitty cat look if I didn’t do a YouTube tutorial! Don’t worry about writing down any of the products since I’m listing them for you at the end of this post:
