Can I wear eyeliner AND lipstick without looking old????

Well this is a very difficult question to answer, today I have opted for the thick black eyeliner with no lipstick look seen here : In this pic I wear: Time to prime primer, Essence 16 hour foundation, Miss sporty blush, Revlon colour stay liquid eyeliner, Lashings of benefit roller lash mascara, rimmel eye brow pencil in light brown, vaseline intensive repair lip balm, garnier 12 hour moisture tanning lotionpicture023.jpg

which I really love, but then I look at this pic:In this pic I wear, time to prime primer by bare vitamins, loreal infallible 24 hour foundation, sugar box highlighter,  Stila 04 aria liquid lipstick,rimmel eyebrow pencil in light brown, miss sporty blush

and I am torn.

I have long lashes so I love love love my eyeliner, it makes my lashes look longer and gives my eyes definition.  One of my rules when applying make up for daytime is that I only like to do either my eyes or my lips not both as on me it looks as though I am trying to hard, I am 31 so it’s probably my age that makes my look like I am trying to find myself a hot date when I am wearing both eyeliner and lippie, and turning up to the nursery to pick up my son looking like I am on the hunt for a man does not go down well with the other mothers, especially since I am practically married already!!!

Anyway as you will see in the second pics I have put up I do have some eyeliner on but not a lot, and I thought I would always be a die-hard eyeliner fan BUT with all of these amazing lipsticks out at the moment I am afraid that I am kind of being two-faced and turning my back on eyeliner and opting for the matte lipstick instead, because its matte it still looks natural which kind of enables me to do both my eyes and my lips at the same time.!!!

So what I am pretty much saying is the rule I have pretty much lived with my whole make-up applying life has been thrown out the window.  I think I look fresh in both pictures and I really could not pick just one that I think looks better than the other, I really couldn’t.

So thank you cosmetics companies all over the world for the best invention make-up has seen since the brow stencil and creating a lipstick that oldies like myself can wear through the day with thier favourite make-up products and still look natural.  All hail the matte lipstick!!!!!!!!

I am loving catrice just now, your thoughts??

Catrice is a very inexpensive Germany makeup which is available in most European countries. I honestly like this brand for it’s limited edition collections that they bring out but I’m not a huge fan of their permanent collection products so I tend to pick up only the limited edition stuff. This time I’ve picked up […]

There isn’t much need for an introduction at this point since there’s probably not a single person on the internet that hasn’t heard of contouring, but I figured there must still be people out there who find it hard to master!
