Not sure about you, but I’m not a very consistent sort of person in some regard. For example, I can’t eat the same type of food often and I don’t like using the same products for extended periods at a time. I like mixing stuff up, even if it is just a small unnoticeable change to others.
I don’t wear often wear makeup day to day. However there are a couple of “essential” pieces that I try to include on even my most laziest of days if I can manage. Those two are eyeliner and mascara.
I switch between gel eyeliners, liquid eye liners and powder eye liners all the time. However lately, I’ve been rather obsessed with trying to use up some of my pencil liners. Especially the crazy number of sample Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils in Zero. (Seriously they come in almost every single gift set from UD!!)
However I find it very difficult to get a smooth thin line unless I am constantly sharpening my pencils. So an alternative is using an angled brush, which if you watch my Book of Fables series you’ve noticed me do a couple of times.
I take the brush to the pencil, and then I dab the brush on my upper lash line, as the formula isn’t the smoothest, I find dabbing to be the best way to avoid dragging my eyelids.
Do you guys have any other “strange” makeup habits you’ve picked up? I’m thinking of moving back to gel liner since I’m pretty much only a few weeks off finishing up my MAC Fluidline Blacktrack. I’m hoping that this year I’ll be able to finally polish off a few other makeup products 🙂
