Hey! Do you have any tips for removing mascara/ eyebrow makeup without losing any lashes/ eyebrow hairs? My eyebrows arent thick anymore!

Mascara, Eyeliner, Brow Pencil, Brow Gel… We put our eyes & face through a lot to get gorgeous looking makeup. Whilst some makeup is still prone to smudging and moving about all over the place, nowadays technology has meant that makeup is both incredibly long-wearing and difficult to remove and that’s not even necessarily waterproof products…

Layer Waterproof Products

If you insist on wearing waterproof, long wearing products try layering them on-top of regular, non waterproof products. Applying a coat of regular mascara and then a waterproof mascara means that the waterproof mascara will grip onto your regular mascara and not your lashes, making it easier to remove. This also works well for eyeliner and brow products too. As for lashes, tubular mascaras work really well if you want waterproof mascara without lash damage, just hop into the shower, and gently use your thumb and index finger to “wiggle” off the mascara (it will come off in tiny little tubes)

Use an Oil

We’ve often been taught to keep oil as far away as possible from our faces, but oils are actually one of the best things for your skin. When dealing with stubborn eye makeup an oil really is the best way to go as waterproof products are designed to withstand water, not oil. Just massage a cleansing oil (regular olive oil does the trick too) over your eyes and into your lashes to help break-up makeup. If you’re not a fan of directly using oil on your skin try an oil-based makeup remover like Trilogy Very Gentle Makeup Be Gone Cleansing Balm.

Double Cleanse

After removing the bulk of your makeup with an oil (or good makeup remover) it’s a good idea to go in with another cleanser, this will remove any oily residue and help to balance out your skin and leave it feeling fresh and clean. I’m a big fan of micellar waters because they’re gentle, yet effective (you’d be surprised at how much makeup is left on your skin from your first cleanse after using this) Bioderma Sensibio h2o is my preferred micellar water.

Annabelle Eyeliner Reviews

Hey guys, this is a review on two of the Annabelle eyeliners- the Kohl liner and the Smudgeliner. Both are really inexpensive and you can probably purchase them at any drugstore (although Walmart would be cheaper). Both come in many colours ranging from the neutrals, like black or brown, to vibrant, bright colours like blue or purple. 

Annabelle Kohl Eyeliner

The one I have is the green one- 109 Lotus. The label says it is hypo-allergenic. I’ve had this for a while now but hardly ever used it. This is why:

  • Hardly any pigmentation
  • Not creamy at all
  • Does not glide on easily
  • Doesn’t last long

Here is a swatch:

As you can see, it’s not that pigmented, which I don’t like.

I’m not sure if the neutrals are any better, but I also have the purple one (lost it unfortunately) and it pretty much sucks just as much, so I suggest testing it out on your hand before purchasing. There are many other drugstore liners that are a lot better than these ones, though I’m not sure if there are as many colors. 

Don’t think that just because these ones suck that the Smudge liners are crap as well! In reality….

Annabelle Smudgeliner Eyeliner

I have this one in Atomic Surf, a really nice turquoise color. It comes with a smudge brush at the end (I lost the cap of mine :( ). The label claims it is ophthalmologist tested.

This eyeliner is actually one of my favorites ever because

  • It’s suppppeerr pigmented
  • Really creamy
  • Slides on beautifully
  • Has an extremely subtle metallic shine to it which brightens up the eyes
  • The smudge brush that comes along with it helps smudge it out, making a really nice smokey effect
  • Lasts quite long, for a couple of hours, by itself. Would last really long if you set it with powder!

Look how pigmented it is!!!!!!!!!! :D (especially compared to the kohl liner right next to it….)

Again, I don’t have it in any neutral colors but I definitely love the one I have. Usually, I would wear this on the bottom lash line, with either white or black on the water line (depending how dramatic I wanna be) and a black liquid liner to line the top. Top it off with mascara and your eyes will look beautiful! I will definetely try out the different colors once I have time to get it and let you all know how it is! 

Thanks for reading and I hope I helped you! xoxo- Melissa

I never posted this here! 

So like, my friend Jaidy and I are kinda obsessed with this musical, Razia’s Shadow.

And the official studio recording has Brendon Urie in it and his character is like this leader of like this dark and demonic kind of place and I just can’t get the image of Brendon Urie dressed in like a black general’s uniform with black eye liner smudged all over his eyes out my head. I’m so in love with this musical. I wanted to try something art nouveau-ish.


Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks

Okay, dirty little secret of mine…I’m AWFUL at doing eye makeup. With regular eyeshadow I always come out looking like I just lost a fight. That’s why I’ve been obsessed with Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Colour for months now! Not only do they make it so easy, they also double as a liner too! Smudge a bit on your lids and spread with a brush and you’re done! Obsessed. The best colors, the least amount of time, one of the best makeup investments. Who says caviar is only for eating?

i love the parts of me i’ve always hated only when i see them in other people. gapped front teeth, lisps, thick eyebrows, uneven bangs, chipped nail polish, smudged ink liner, cloudy black bruises, paper knife finger cuts. hand-me-down baby doll parts held together with crayon and glue. raggedy ann girls, yarn hair and cotton skin. every imperfection another badge on our girl scout sashes. 


Blur the edges.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy eye look that screams sophistication, Smudged Out might be your newest beauty secret. With just one eyeliner gel crayon that works like a cream shadow, Sephora PRO Artist Erik Soto explains how to take your look from day to night. BECKY PEDERSON

Apply Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Brown(Out) to your lash line using short strokes. You’re going to smudge the liner, so the line doesn’t have to be clean. Using the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Crease Brush #10, quickly blend the color to your eye crease. Because our model’s eyes are wide set, Erik concentrated color on her inner corners to bring them closer together. If your eyes are close set, the opposite rule is true: Concentrate color on your outer corners to make your eyes appear farther apart.

After you’ve smudged your upper lash line, draw another line on your lower lash line and smudge again with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Smudge Brush #11, a flat brush with compact bristles that will diffuse the color. Erik says it’s important to move onto this step after you’ve fully completed Step One. This is because Highliner’s waterproof formula won’t budge after it dries, so you have a limited amount of time to move around the color.

Blend with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Crease Brush #10 to soften any last harsh edges around your eye. Lastly, swipe on some Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara and hit the road.

This look is built to take you from day to night. “Because she’s already got her day sparkles going on,” Erik says, “for night I would just add a black liner to the water line for more definition.”

Further, this look is great if you missed out on some crucial zzz’s. When you wake up looking like you could use another solid eight hours, Erik says to lay off the concealer, which will only highlight your tired eyes. Instead, use your crease brush to bring the color down your eye and over your bags. According to Erik, “If you wake up puffy, it’s a Smudged Out day!” 


This is one of the oldest tricks in the book and how makeup artists made gel liners back in Old Hollywood. It really fills in the holes in between your lashes and gives you an intense smudge like a kajal liner or grease paint. It’s super simple and easy, but if you’re a minor please get adult supervision.


  • A kohl eye liner pencil from your local drug store. 
  • An open flame {a lighter is nice because it’s portable, but you can also use a candle or a gas stove top}.


  1. To slightly liquefy it, hold the tip of the pencil in the flame for one quick second. Don’t even say one Mississippi!
  2. Wait 15 seconds for the pencil to cool down. It gets really hot so you have to let it cool down then always test it out on the back of your hand before you go anywhere near your eye!!
  3. Roll it a little on the back of your hand to mold and keep the tip pointed while it’s becoming a solid again.
  4. Sweep the liner along your upper + lower lashlines as well as your inner waterline if you want to make your eyes even more piercing.

okay but please consider the following:
