Liquid eyeliner and why mothers should wear it.
I think I have quite small eyes so it helps make them stand out a bit.
For a while after I had Wild Man I was too tired and overwhelmed to wear any make-up. It was all I could do to brush my teeth each day.
But gradually life came back under control. I started wearing make-up again and made a horrible discovery ... pencil eyeliner smudges really easily and when you are a tired mother you rub your eyes a lot!
Not a great combination.
I persevered for a while but each time I went near a mirror I was horrified by the black smudges around my eyes. Eventually I just gave up and resigned myself to beady little smudge-free eyes.
But recently I discovered liquid eyeliner.
It is slightly harder to put on than pencil but once it is dry it doesn't smudge, no matter how much I rub my eyes.
It's amazing how much more together a little bit of eyeliner makes a girl feel.
What super fast make-up tricks do you have?
