SS15 Makeup: Gel Eye Liners in a Pen Form

Being a huge fan of eye liners (this is my favourite), I am happy to see new ones coming out. And it seems like angled gel, long-lasting eye liners in a “pen” form are the thing now. I have selected three options, and since I haven’t tried any – I’ve included official descriptions.

Black Mascara Alternatives: Plum, Brown and Oxblood

I think I have already told this story, but why not sharing it once again. When I was a child the most fascinating thing for me, makeup-wise, was a colourful mascara. I remember that I was about 6, when I saw a girl with blue eye lashes, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off her. I promised myself that when I grow up – I will have a lot of different shades!

And, although, I don’t really wear blue or green mascaras that often – I do like more subtle versions for a change. Here are three that I want to share with you.

Black Mascara Alternatives Plum Clarins, Brown benefot and Oxblood Rouge Bunny Rouge

Clarins Instant Definition Mascara in Intense Plum (review)

This was a Limited Edition, but since it’s my favourite colourful mascara that I ever owned, I had to include it. Plus, you can still get it from Amazon.

The formula is brilliant, is gives you that wow-effect, nice volume and intensity.   I adore wearing it when I opt for a bright lip and want to keep my eyes look more subtle (and more  interesting than just black) but still defined. Actually, I get a lot of compliments when I am wearing it.

I am the biggest oxblood fan, I have been wearing it for years

Actually, believe it or not, but usually I don’t care about dark circles (on myself, not when I am doing someone’s makeup), unless they really look that bad. But when I do want to look flawless, here is what I do.

First of all, I use a good eye cream, for me it has to be a moisturizing balm, as I have very dry skin. I love  Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (review) and FOM London Revitalising Eye Care Balm (read about it), I leave it for some time while I am getting ready, and afterwards the following products are being used:
