Tartar On My Eyes

Ignore the little smudge/fall down under the 'wing' I only saw it after I took the pictures, Whops!

Earlier this year Nars launched their new Eye Paints/Gel Eyeliners and although I heard good things of them I wasn't all over the internet trying to get my hands on them. However, last week my mom's cousin from New York came to visit, and as she's working in the beauty business she came carrying quite a few goodies for us to choose from, from various brands - including Nars and their lovely little pots of colour. I selected a gorgeous black with purple shimmer in it called Tartar. As the beauty junkie that I am I wante to try it out immediately and yesterday I did a winged liner look with it that came out quite nice so I thought I'd share it with you. For a quick run-down of the look and how I achieved it, keep on reading!

As a base I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation with my Sigmax Angled Kabuki Brush and buffed that in to a natural, but flawles finish. I did my contouring with my new love Benefit Hoola and the brush it comes with, which I happen to love in contrast to more or less everyone else. For blusher I popped on a bit of Sleek's Squash from the Pumpkin trio and my TopShop Cream highlighter went on my cheekbones as usual. 

For my eyes I used a large fluffy brush to softly apply a warm brown all over my lids, and I decided to multi-use and went for my Hoola bronzer here as well, which worked perfectly! Then I lined my upper and lower lashline with Teddy Eye Pencil by MAC and softly blended it before I came in with the Nars  Gel Liner in Tartar and made a winged line allowing Teddy to peek out above it :) After some curling of the lashes with my MAC lash curler and some lashings of the Lancome Hypnose Mascara the look was complete!
