Gel Eyeliner Tutorial + Giveaway Winner!

First things first – let’s see who won the MAC Fluidline Giveaway!

Congratulations to…
Jen!

from Freckle on the Nose of Life’s Complexion
(hope you don’t mind I steal your cute face for my blog post)

E-mail me at oismeblog {at} gmail {dot} com so I can get this to you!
YAY!!
I wish I could send one to all of you, but… my “secret anonymous donor” would be out a lot of cash. My secret anonymous donor is freaking amazing and thoughtful nonetheless. I’ve got a few more beauty-related giveaways up my sleeve, so be on the look out!
Now that we’re on the subject of gel eyeliner, how about a little video tutorial?
I’m going to give a little shout out to Heather for this fabulous idea!
I’ve had a few people ask how I apply my eyeliner and some of you have had reservations on using it. Hopefully this will give you more confidence and get you pumped to use it! Just a few notes before you watch – you don’t need MAC brushes to do this. In fact, I love EcoTools, and they can be found at any drug store. I recommend getting a few different small brushes and a smudge brush/ q-tips (for smoky eye looks). Enjoy! You know you wanna watch 10 minutes of gel eyeliner amazingness. And just so you know, I am very thorough. That’s why it’s 10 minutes.

 

Makeup I’m wearing:
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Light-Medium
Smashbox Soft Lights Fusion in Dusk (bronzer)
Bobbi Brown Peony Blush also seen here
Naked Palette colors on eyelids also seen here
MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (obviously)
Hope this gave you a little more knowledge for your makeup arsenal!

    Oh my goodness, thank you!! Clearly fate intervened because it knew I was in dire need of eye makeup assistance!

    Such a fabulous start to Monday morning!

    I am bookmarking this video because your eye makeup turned out fabulously, but can I also book a consultation with you? I’ll come to Texas, haha.

    Thank you again, Meg!

    Congrats Jen!!! I’m super jealous.

    I love your vlogs they are always hilarious.

    I apply my makeup very similarly but I pull my eyes… so great tip about wrinkles!! I don’t want them for a very very very long time.
