Experiment: Floating Eyeliner

Now what’s with this floating eyeliner trend? I first saw it in Stylist Magazine‘s Trend on Trial then again in this week’s Grazia magazine. It’s a great catwalk look but can I make it work for the everyday person?

 

The first time I tried this, I was told I looked like I had extra eyebrows and should never do it again!

 

Let me know what you think.Β This is my second attempt using Seventeen Lacquer Liner in black.

Just a quick note, the Seventeen Lacquer Liner is quick to dry which is great for something like this but it looked a bit odd after a short while – it looked like it wrinkled!Β  If I wear this look this again, I’ll use my MAC Fluidline. This look has grown on me and I quite like it!Β The problem is, this is so fiddly and I’m really impatient, I probably won’t do it again.

The full face kit I used is:

 

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Last Foundation SPF 15 in Golden 6

 

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Finish Powder Compact Foundation SPF 12 in Honey 5

 

Bobbi Brown Dark Peach Corrector

 

Bobbi Brown Dark Bisque Corrector

Unfortunately the following are no longer available:

  • Anything by Ruby & Millie – it has been discontinued.
  • Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Last Foundation SPF 15 in Golden 6 – I believe this has been replaced with Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation SPF 15.
  • Seventeen Lip Liners – they appear to have been replaced with lip crayons.
