Stepping into Autumn with Crazy Color

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I paired up with Crazy Color to make a statement with a temporary pastel pink dip-dye / ombré hairstyle. This is an incredibly bold hair colour choice for me and not one I would make without a little push. In this post I want to share my experience with the temporary Crazy Color pastel spray, and to show you how easy it is to use (so easy that I could do it!) Read more..

How I Wing It: My Liquid Eye Liner Tutorial

Hey guys! I thought I would take this opportunity to write about something which I am frequently asked and praised about: my liquid eye liner.

At this point I think it’s important to admit… I definitely have an addiction to my wings. I have been practising and perfecting my technique over five years… FIVE YEARS – and it has been my every day make up for this amount of time. Here are a few photos to mark my progression:

January 2011

January 2011 – the wings are born! Very Winehouse-esque

October 2012

October 2012 – these wings definitely makes me cringe!

July 2013

July 2013 – a post gym sweaty photo: apparently I only wanted my eye liner to cover half my eye [?!]

June 2014

June 2014 – MUCH better! This was a very good wing day, my brows on the other hand… EEK.

March 2016

March 2016 – We’re up to date!! I’m sure there will still be both good and bad days but I think we can all agree that I have come a long way!

In the past five years I have tried many different types of liquid eye liner but there has only been ONE which I have always been able to rely on, and that is Rimmel London Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner in 100% black

The applicator brush on this eye liner is sturdy enough to confidently glide across my eyelid without it flinging all over the place – an issue which I have encountered with many other liquid eye liners.

Another major plus is that this eye liner is SO long lasting – I have never had a smudge or fade issue with this product. A massive thumbs up from me!

So here is my brief step-by-step guide on how I actually apply my winged eye liner:

STEP ONE – Glide the liner across the lash line, making as straight and smooth a line as possible


You can make this line as thick or as thin as you like. For me, it totally depends on my mood and how dramatic a look I’m going for.


You can already see such a huge effect on the eye and how it notches up your day time look to make it THAT much more dramatic.


STEP TWO – Create the basis of your wing by making a line from the outer lid to the corner of your eye


I find it helpful to angle the eye liner by following the line on the bottom lid.


STEP THREE – Fill in your wing. I try to make this joining as smooth as possible in order to create a more ‘natural look’


Once again, you can adjust these instructions to make your wing as thick or as thin as you prefer.




I hope this tutorial was as fun to read as it was to make! If you have any more questions or tips I’d love to hear from you, so please comment below.
