Today’s Makeup, 2016-05 (FOTD)

by Schnauzevoll

Hey there, Internet!

So we probably all have those beauty items that we do not use as they were intended to be used. For me that would be gel eyeliner, used on the waterline (inner part of eyelid, where you would place your kajal). I definitely have had some bad experiences with gel eyeliners that obviously should not be used for the waterline. Moments where I was running around my flat, screaming, washing my eyes out because the formula hurt, felt as if my eyes were burning. Luckily though, there are also those gel eyeliners that will feel like your average kajal but stay for a day without fading (not sure if by long term they will cause damage to my already broken eyes…). This leads to me not having to spend more time than neccessary in the restrooms when going out but also to a ton of gel eyeliner that I don’t want to throw away but that I also don’t want to use this way and for my common eyeliner games I definitely prefer liquid. Anyways, they will be used for my crying eye makeups but also for some different looks when I simply need a lot of black. This happened today. I actually wanted to sew my curtains but my sewing machine (which I also call Else, simply because she always acts up and that is a name that is easy to use while screaming, cursing and so on!) refused to work so I was annoyed and bored and in whatever bad mood one could think of, playing with makeup helps a lot on those days so that’s what I did!
