don’t wing it

LOCATION:  Beverly Hills

The term, practice makes perfect applies to practically everything, especially when it comes to perfecting the wingtip liner. I’ve spent years attempting every single “genius hack” in the book; scotch tape, pencil liner as a guide, even connecting the dots. Seems a bit extreme but that deep black matt liner adds the most sophisticated finish to every look – I strive to perfect it like I need the latest “it bag”.  What I discovered was a real surprise, it’s not a trick to be hacked, rather a key element that lays in the actual liquid and the applicator itself. Discover my go-to below.

Get The Look:



Eye Liner

It’s safe to say that I’ve been through all liquid liners. There is a dedicated drawer (the eye liner grave) in my vanity for them. After a recent trip to Urban Outfitters of all places, I discovered Ardency Inn’s Modster liner so I gave it a go. My issue with other liners is that it’s not thick enough and runs into the crease of my eyelid. Monster is honestly the only one I’ve found that stays all day without running and gives me that dark, matt liner look that I love. The flocked applicator gives you ultimate control for smooth glide application. My trick to creating the shape? Close your eye and follow the natural curve up and out to your desired end point. From there, go back and fill in the rest.

Oribe Texturizing Spray



RMS Beauty


Looking for that lit-from-within glow? Here’s your secret weapon. I used to think that certain women were slugging gallons of water to get that complexion. Wrong. It’s found in the smallest little container of RMS Beauty Luminizer. I use my damp beauty blender or my pinky and dab the highlighter into the inner corner of my eye, the center of the lid, underneath the brow bone and of course on the cheek bones.

  • Great Tutorial! I find now that I always go back to the Stila liquid eyeliner as I find it easy to use and I’ve gone through so many other eyeliners that just didn’t cut it! I always find that a cat-eye flick really completes a look… I’m still working on getting my flicks symmetrical though. Great tutorial and advice.

    Thank you for the eyeliner secrets! I use NYX stay all day matte liquid liner, its affordable and doesn’t budge all day long. xo

  • I highly recommend LORAC’s Front of the Line Pro because it’s waterproof and very black and viscous. It applies easily like Stila but has a thicker consistency and longer wear. Love your blog and your Anna Karina french-pop look! It’s nice to see such highbrow taste in California… xo
