My eye make up routine was first revolutionised when I had a consultation with a MAC make up artist at London Fashion Week last season, I asked for a vamped up version of what I was already wearing (my standard every day look plus red lipstick, like in the photo above!) so she went to work. I used to use black eye shadow under my bottom lashes, but by the end of the day it would have all but disappeared. She suggested using gel liner on the bottom lashes and I haven't looked back since, I literally went straight to the MAC shop and bought myself a little pot of gel liner!
My next problem was to tackle my top lid and lashes, my first stop was Benefit as pretty much all of the rest of my make up bag is from Benefit (seriously, I'm like a walking advert) so tried out the Magic Ink Liner. Although the liner worked a treat, it stays on through all kind of weather and exercise but I really didn't get on with the brush, it was really difficult to get my usual flicks even, smooth and to my liking, so I stopped using it altogether.
Finally, there's a new product that bridges the gap between liquid eyeliner and gel liner, that is SO easy to use. It is an absolute dream, the tip is designed so you can get precision wing tips and cat eyes by pretty much just stamping them on! The tip also gently pushes eyelashes out of the way so you can get super close to your lash line, genius huh? I've included a pic below just to show you how it works. There's also no need for a brush, just a few clicks and the gel is dispensed from the tip, no mess! About two clicks should do both of your eyes as well, lovely stuff.
Not only that, it's waterproof so perfect for rainy Manchester, sweating it out at the gym or at a festival, exactly what I need.
Take a look at the video below to see it in action, as it says, it's criminally easy!
