I am smitten
I’m the real thing (I’m the real thing)

My crush with eyeliner
If I had to say that I had a crush on anything right now, it would be with eyeliner. Maybe not a crush, but a deep, deep intense like. More than a Facebook like, even.
Eyeliner seems to be kind of like the nail art craze of the past few months (that shows no sign of abating!) in that all forms of eyeliner are experiencing a Renaissance of sorts. No longer limited to those of us with a non-shaky hand and lots of patience, dare I say, eyeliner is becoming more accessible?
Winter 2012 has started for me and this term I’m taking two business classes and another psychology class. I wish that I could say that I knew of the definite path that I was on, but I’m doing my best to finish this AAS degree. That’s all I know for sure. In the meantime, I keep thinking about eyeliner, eyeliner, eyeliner!!
This tutorial from Jane Marie of The Hairpin was a revelation a couple of months ago and I continually defer to it when doing cat-eye liner. You should try it! It’s kind of fun, getting the tape out. My hands aren’t the steadiest when it comes to my OWN makeup, but I’m quite still when doing makeup for other people. Now tell me how that works?
The following products are in my daily repertoire:
EYE MAKEUP PRIMERS
This post would be remiss if I didn’t include this product. It’s in my hall of fame and I might have to get another one soon as I’m almost out. Behold, MAC Cosmetics’ Fluidline in the shade Blacktrack.
I use my pot liners with the following brushes:
MAC Cosmetics’ 263 small angle brush (which is also wonderful with eyebrows) (on a side note, this brush is so popular with me as I have lost 4 of them and had 2 stolen from me. Egads!)
We’ll talk about other techniques later, but I will leave you with the inspiration for the title of this post and the lyrics quoted at the beginning.
