My Eyeliner Look

I recently got bored with my eyeliner style so I thought I'd vamp it up a bit with some eyeshadow. A short while ago I purchased an Avon eyeshadow quad in 'Smoky Eyes' (£8.50 and I hadn't really used it so thought this would be a perfect time to try it out!

I am fully aware that my eyeliner style is very heavy and is probably more suited for most peoples 'going-out' make-up, but I just thought I'd share it with you. I only use normal cosmetics, nothing super fancy here so the look is affordable for everyone. I have only used the Avon eyeshadow quad (only the white and black shades), Collection 2000 liquid eyeliner and Rimmel 100% waterproof mascara in 'Black Black'.

I won't bore you all with a step by step how-to but I'll briefly explain how to do this as it's very simple.

1 - Sweep your entire lid with a fine coating of the white shade (top left).
2 - Dab the outer corner of your eye with the black shade (top right) and blend upwards.
3 - Curl eyelashes and put mascara on.
4 - Apply liquid eyeliner as desired, mine also lines the bottom of my eyes.
5 - Make any needed eyeshadow/liner touch ups and voila, you're done!

What do you think of this look?
