Cat Eyes


I have worn liquid eye-liner in some form or another since I was 15 years old. I usually use Chanel's automatic liquid eye-liner but have just bought MAC's Fluidline and angled brush for a more dramatic look. Perhaps not as dramatic as the Chanel in the first picture but I really love Louise Ebel's look in the third. And of course, not forgetting the original 1960's Anna Karina.



Also, I wanted to direct you to a great blog, Design Inspiration - a local blogger who has recently done a wonderful post on me. I only recently discovered this blog through a local newspaper and each time I visit I cannot believe there is someone quite so talented sitting on my doorstep, so to speak. The clue is in the blog title, I know so many of you are craft obsessed, so I would urge you to pay a visit, you'll not be disappointed!

  6. I've worn liquid eyeliner since I was 15/16 yo too, it's my "statement make up". Never tried with an angled brush though...not sure but it looks a bit difficult!

  9. I love this look and have been using liquid eyeliner since I was a teenager as well. Though for the day I do opt for a more low-key liner look. But there's nothing more dramatic than dark eyes!

    I've been meaning to try the MAC Fluidline...

  13. best way to decorate thy eyes!! can't live without my cat eyes. i'm use l'oreal high intensity pigment color truth cream eyeliner in 905 black and bobbi brown's ultra fine eyeliner. the bobbi cream eyeliner was excellent too but i made the mistake of not closing the cap once and it dried :(

  14. i have that same eyeliner set from Mac, but after all the mascara faux pas i've experienced with it, i've grown afraid to use it!

    congratulations on your feature -- i enjoyed reading it immensely!

  15. No dark yeye for me... when I do it, it's more of a black eye. :) Would love to know how to do it, though.

  16. MAC Fluideline is the BEST! It stays on the right place the whole day and night!

  17. I use MAC Fluidline and love it, though I've have never had the nerve or the steady hand to do the cat eye look though.

  19. I am so pleased that you and some of your readers liked the feature I wrote. I just felt that a little visit to Pink Bow would bring more smiles around the world.
    I'm almost ashamed to say my eyeliner is brown, but I do wings.
