Tutorial: Statement Liner

At the minute I’m battling a pretty serious eyeliner addiction. Something I’ve always loved is big-ass cat flick/winged liner. Lately however I’m loving me a statement ‘bottom line’ Step forward then my current king of liners No7’s Stay Precision Eyeliner. I had some advantage card points a few weeks ago so decided to spend them on a couple of their metallic liners!


There are so many colours in the range it’s hard to stop yourself grabbing them all. Being sensible though I just went for two until I saw how the performed. I went for the shades Mermaid and Sky High. I gotta tell you guys, these liners are incredible. The apply so easily and last for days. I really, really need the rest of them now!

Anyway I digress. The other day I was feeling conflicted because  I wanted to try out my new liners, but I was also desperate to use my NARSissist palette which is pretty neutral. So me being me I decided they must be combined, some how! Want to see what I created?…


You will need:

  1. An eye primer
  2. A neutral eyeshadow palette
  3. A light pink pigment such as MAC’s Kitchmas
  4. No7 precision liner in mermaid
  5. A black eyeliner
  6. Black Mascara
  7. A pair of false lashes, your choice



  1. As always prime up to the brow bone
  2. Apply your transitional colour to your crease (mines M.U.G. Peach Smoothie) and blend out using a windshield wiper motion
  3. Apply a matt shadow that is the same shade as your skin tone to your lid and blend out
  4. Apply a dark grey/taupe shadow to your crease and blend out using circular movements in your outer v and wind shield wiper motions over your crease
  5. Apply your pigment to the inner two thirds of your lids
  6. Apply a black eyeliner to you upper lid
  7. Apply black mascara to your top lashes
  8. Apply your false lashes
  9. Apply your No7 liner to your bottom lash and water line
  10. Apply black mascara to your lower lashes
  11. Apply a light shimmery shadow to your tear duct and brow bone

There you have it beauties, a pretty simple everyday look that is bang on the current metallic trend. Now I have to go play with my other liner.
