The secret to my winged eyeliner..

Now, lets get one thing straight. its not much of a secret.. but i couldn't think of a better title for today. woops!
Im going to try and make this post as quick and simple as possible. my everyday makeup usually consists of a medium winged eyeliner and a lot of mascara. and i've often had people ask what i use etc. so i thought - why not do a blog post dedicated to it ?

I used to use liquid liner, which i didn't find hard to use and every now and then when I'm feeling lazy i do go back to it, but i have now discovered the magical thing called gel eyeliner. this was about 4/5 months ago, previous to that gel eyeliners were mainly constricted to higher end makeup brands until i saw that maybelline had jumped on the bandwagon. good for them! (and for my purse ;) 

i have now used *Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner* almost every single day for the past 4/5 months, and its still going strong. 

(just imagine this is clean..ha )
The maybelline gel eyeliner comes in a glass container with a silver tin lid. i think the packaging is pretty sleek and doesn't look at all cheep. 

as you can see, iv used quite alot, but this picture was taken about 3 and a half months down the line, and considering i use it everyday, its lasted very well..
There is a very reasonable amount of eyeliner for the price, which at a measly £6, isn't something that's gonna brake the bank. 

now there would be no point buying a gel eyeliner, without having a brush. and maybelline have clearly thought of this too, as the eyeliner comes with a nifty little brush that i Have applied it with before, and it does the job. so if you didn't want to go and purchase a brush aswell, then you could defiantly use that. for me, i like my eyeliner to be super sharp and the flick to be as perfect as i can manage, and i just couldn't get that with the brush that came with it. so instead i use a Bare minerals eyeliner brush.

 This eyeliner brush is extremely thin, making it perfect for precise thin lines, as well as build-able sharp thick lines. 

As you can see this eyeliner is as black as black can get, and that's what makes me love it even more. i have heard lots about gel eyeliners drying out after a month or 2, but im 4/5 months in now, and it may have dried up a little, but is 100% still usable and still applys really well, so i will defiantly be re-purchacing this.

i hope this helped all of you eyeliner lovers out there!
