Face of the Day: Soft Winged Liner


I finally got around to playing with my Stila in the Light Palette that I purchased in Melbourne. I have become particularly fond of the formulation of their Smudge Stick Eyeliners, and the inclusion of Damsel, a dark matte brown has had me putting down the black eye liner in favour of this softer shade.


In formulation of the Smudge Stick is very workable for a minute or so after application, so I've been taking an angled liner brush and diffusing it out into a soft winged shape. I then took the colour Luster on a detail brush and blended it over the top, to both set the liner and create a seamless finish.


Face: Garnier BB Cream in Light, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Brightener, Essence Fix and Matte Translucent Loose Powder, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light, Prestige Sunbaked Mineral Bronzing Powder in Pure Shimmer, Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flushed Blush.

Eyes: MAC Painterly Paint Pot, Stila in the Light Eye Shadow Palette - Bare, Kitten, Bliss and Luster, Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel, Dior Diorshow Iconic Extreme Mascara, Australis Tint my Brow in Blonde.

Lips: MAC Lipstick in Angel.

I think the Stila Smudge Sticks are my favourite pencil eye liners that I've tried. They are quite similar to the Rimmel Scandaleyes ones I have tried, but there is something special about the colour selection that Stila has in their range. I want to collect them all!

What is your favourite eye liner? Pencil, gel, brands? I'd love to know.

    My fave eyeliner is the liquid pen one from Kiss me Heroine, it's a japanese brand if I'm not mistaken. ^^
    for the pencil one, I always use Rimmel scandalous eyeliner in black,it is the only one that doesn't smudge within 2 hours on me :)

  4. Pretty! Your eyeliner looks perfect and so effortless. I also have been obsessed with the Stila Smudge Sticks of late. Once I tried gel liner I thought I would never go back but the Smudge Sticks have just been so perfect for daytime and nighttime. X

  7. Love your eye look, it's so soft and smokey but yet so wearable for the day time! I'm still sooo on the fence on buying the heart shaped blush from Too Faced, the deep berry one but swatches I've seen aren't as pigmented as I'd like!

  12. I really love the Urban Decay 24/7 Eye pencils- the Rimmel ones are akin to those, a very close drugstore dupe. Great post!
