There’s nothing like the appearance of big, bright, bushy (say what?) eyes. Some have it naturally, others need a little helping hand. Appearing in the latter category, most mornings my eyes appear red, sometimes puffy but mostly screaming for help. Having tried only a nude liner by Rimmel, I was intrigued to see what some higher brands had to offer. This came along in the form of Smashbox’s waterproof kohl liner in Bare. I wasn’t disappointed.
Best used on your waterline to make the whites of the eyes brighter, this liner also makes a great eye opener when added to the top line (inspired by the lovely Lisa Eldridge). It’s self sharpening meaning the lid does all the work. Every twist of the cap is greeted with a sharp point. Perfect for those tiresome early mornings and the colour is not too white or too peachy. Super subtle, it suits my colouring and looks natural, although those of you with darker skin tones may want to judge for yourself. As it Is waterproof it lasts and stays clear of getting tangled and messy in the lower lashes. This liner is magic, making the eyes sparkle. My only hindrance is the length and chunkiness. Not the easiest thing to chuck into your bag, although this could be a blessing in disguise. Easy to find among the chaos of receipts and loose change.
Have you ever tried a nude liner in your waterline? Love or hate ?
