Not Just Another Cat Eye

Hey Everyone! I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger this month, I've had a lot going on and the days here in Finland are getting shorter and darker, so getting any sort of photos done is a real struggle. I seriously need a studio! You can see how blurry even these photos are, and it I find it quite discouraging and so have not been blogging as much lately. 

Here I wanted to try a different winged-liner technique, as I'm finding it harder and harder to achieve a regular one, I think my eyes are starting to sag or something! The nice thing about doing it this way, is that it covers up that whole outer corner area, so it's perfect if you have uneven, hooded or mono-lids, as you still get that cat-eye effect, without relying on your natural eye shape. I love the way the outer edge of this is really sharp and edgy, but then it fades into a soft blend. 
I used M.A.C. Quarry eyeshadow all over the lid and the crease, before making my wing with Anastasia Beverly Hills Jet Cream Liner and buffing it out with Royal eyeshadow by Smashbox

On my brows I'm wearing my go-to combo of ABH Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde and Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown topped off with a slick of her Clear Brow Gel. The lashes are Ardell 113's


My blush is Dame and my lips are Angel, both by M.A.C.





Also, I just wanted to share some great news with you guys. So I have just got a new job as M.A.C.'s Retail Make-Up Artist here in Finland. Our training starts soon, so forgive me if I'm a bit quiet on here for the next while, I'll be a very busy bee! :) Hope everyone's having a great weekend! 

Much Love xxx
