Sometimes I wanna wear it with eyeshadow; sometimes I wanna wear it with eye gloss.
Yeah, that’s right! Eye gloss — the super shiny stuff, which isn’t known for being eminently wearable, not with that glistening, glossy finish that gleams and beams, but I think it can look super cool when paired with something unexpected like winged liner.
In this look, I love the contrast between the glossy, wet-looking lids and the crisp black liner. It’s like I just got back from charging the waves! Surfer girl meets sassy secretary. 🙂
Make the red lip a matte, and you’ve got an unusual, interesting twist on a classic black winged liner-red lip combo.
The best part of this look is that it’s easy to do, which for me makes it perfect for Fridays when my mind is on other things (like pumpkin spice lattes).
Starting with bare lids, just curl your lashes if you need to (mine are pin straight, so this is a must). Then draw your winged liner, and tight-line your upper water line.
Wait for the liner to dry, and then apply and pat a clear eye gloss on your lids from lash line to brow bone (I don’t go too far into the inner corner with the gloss; otherwise, it starts to look heavy and a little weird).
Finish by loading up your lashes with mascara.
That’s it! A fabulous Fri-yay look. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Uh! TGIF!
What are you doing this weekend? I’m gonna clean the house from top to bottom because — OMG! — El Hub said that he saw a mouse in the kitchen this morning, and I JUST CAN’T DEAL.
Actually, I’m kind of disappointed that Tabs wasn’t on it, but I guess old man Tabby has been too busy catching up on his beauty sleep…
Nevertheless, I intend to use this as an opportunity to convince the company to hire a younger, friskier, hungrier mouser kitty coworker from the ASPCA. So far, however, my lobbying hasn’t been met with enthusiasm… Baby Girl and I are the only ones in favor of the idea, boo-hoo.
