Is black liquid winged liner ever a good idea when you’ve only got 15 minutes to put on your makeup?

I think I was going for “crazy cat lady in the suburbs” with this ensemble, which I wore yesterday. You know how I mentioned that I’ve been trying to wear more makeup lately? I just wasn’t really into it after having the baby. Well, I’m still out of practice, but I’m trying to push myself a little by wearing makeup every day, and sometimes it turns OK, but sometimes it looks like this.

There are a few things going on with this look. First, there’s, like, a patch here on my chin where I sort of didn’t blend the foundation, but that’s because I spent most of the 15 minutes I spent on the liner — just drawing it and correcting it, and redrawing it.


I thought that I could just use this liner from L’Oréal and some tape for the wings, and that once I did those things, the look would basically be done, but the takeaway lesson here is that if you’re going to attempt a 15-minute makeup look…don’t do black liquid liner…unless you want to be really stressed out, because I was REALLY stressed out the entire time.

Fifteen minutes just wasn’t enough time to do a great job on this.

One side of the liner looked a little thick, while the other side looked a little wonky, so I had to bust out a Q-tip to try and fix it.

It was a mess.

I’m also wearing Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation, and despite the big glob on the side on my cheek that I didn’t blend, it turned out OK.

That’s Bite Beauty Multistick in Papaya on my cheeks and lips and some eyeshadows from NARS.

Honestly, the eyeshadow here was basically an afterthought. I did the liner first, and then the shadow on my lids afterward (MAC Tabby cream shadow). And just used neutrals for the rest.

    What do you think of that L’Oréal mascara and liner? I have seen them around but I’m usually hesitant about L’Oréal mascaras.

      Hi Agata,

      I like them both. The L’Oreal mascara is good for volume and curl hold. The liner has great color and pigment, but I find the tip a little challenging because it’s stiff. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I don’t think it looks bad. And I think you’re channeling Fresh Prince of Bel Aire 90’s cool. This post just reminds me that I need to restock on my fave liquid eyeliner pen.

  3. Chris25 says:

    I am now very curious about that L’oreal eyeliner.

    Honestly, I would never have noticed your unblended foundation. And I think your liner looks great! You could give me 15 hours and I’d never get liquid liner (or a cat eye, forget about combining them!) to look decent. I think it’s awesome that you’re doing these complete looks in only 15 minutes. It’s like your super power. 🙂

    If you hadn’t drawn a little curly-cue line with an arrow at the end I would have never seen the unblended foundation. Even with the arrow I can barely see it. Fifteen minute makeup for me is something to cover the red on my lids, mascara, lip balm or sheer lipstick and some sort of SPF with a little blurring coverage. Let’s face it, I can spend all fifteen minutes combing my lashes so that they’re separated and defined. Liner is for when I have at least half an hour or more to deal with making it even.

    I love this look! I think I should really invest in one of those Bite Beauty sticks, I’m obsessed with their lipsticks as it is. 🙂
