Tutorial • Winged Eyeliner Effect

To start creating the winged effect, start by taking an eyeliner pencil and lightly sketching out the shape you wish to have. The shape you want to create is depends on your face shape and how you are feeling. Always follow the shape of your eye and the directions your eyelid is. Also, you might want it to be thicker and further out one day, and thinner the next. It is always best to start of with this light outline, because it acts as a guidline and can also be adjusted a lot easier than a liquid eyeliner. 

Another tip is focus on something else for a minute or so and come back to the mirror later. By taking a break you will be able to see if each eye looks exactly the same. Now that you have an outline that looks symmetrical, it is time to use the liquid eyeliner. Most liquid eyeliners come with a brush provided, usually on the lid of the bottle, however it is much better if you use an actual eyeliner brush. By using this, creating the shape you want is a lot easier. Start thin in the middle of you eyelid and gradually go fatter towards the outer eyelid. Once you have the first line, you can decide whether you want it to be thicker or not. Gradually fill in shape thicker and thicker making sure you go as close to the eyelashes as possible. 

Once you have finished, do not move your head by looking up or down. Stay as still as possible for at least 15 seconds to make sure the eyeliner drys and does not smudge. Again, step away from the mirror and come back a few minutes later too see if the eyeliner looks symmetrical. Voila! You are finished! The more you create this look, the better you will get at it. Lots of love xoxo

My Piercings

I don't have all that many piercing. I only have them on my ears although I was considering getting my belly button done, but then I heard lots of stories about it getting infected easily, so I still need time to think! 

Lobe Number. 1
My first lobe piercing was when I was 11 years old. I can't remember if it hurt or not, I just remember that after a few weeks it got quite gross and crust and hurt a lot. That has long passed and doesn't hurt one bit! It's nothing special having your lobes done because nearly everyone has it, but stud earrings are part of my daily accessory and how I express myself so it doesn't matter. 

Lobe Number. 2
I thought it would look really good to have earrings just above the ones I already had in my lobe, so I got a pair just above. Unfortunately they are slightly too close to my first lobes so I hardly ever wear both at the same time. In the picture above you can see I have some in, but this is because I am wearing a very small stud so I can fit it. 

My cartilage was my most recent piercing. I had wanted it for years and never got round to getting it done. Finally and friend of mine and I agreed to go and get it done together. I had it done on my right ear because the way my hair parts when it's loose means you can see it better like that. For the pain, I rate it a four out of five. This is because I panicked so it hurt more than it should have done. I hate needles and injections and getting pierced means a needle is going in you, so of course I freaked out. When it was over however all I felt was a throbbing hot sensation. It hasn't got infected and hasn't given me any problems yet so that's great! I am very glad I got it done!

Do you have any piercing?
