Applying Eyeliner Like a Pro

Many women use eyeliner, but some don’t use it correctly. Maybe they were taught the wrong way or they just developed bad habits over time, but we are here to show you how to apply your eyeliner like a professional giving you the results you want in less time than you would think.

We recommend a gel eyeliner with a small, precision brush as this will enable you to build up the eyeliner as you apply it and it lets you get in close to the lashes. If any corrections need to be made, using a cotton tipped makeup applicator with makeup remover on it will help.

Let’s take a look at how to apply your eyeliner using gel eyeliner on your upper eyelid.

  • Start by applying the gel eyeliner around the center of your eyelid. Be sure to stay as close to the lashes as you can. If you have longer lashes than most, use the brush to push your eyelashes down and out of the way.
  • Apply the eyeliner outwards towards the end of your eyelid in even, consistent strokes.
  • Be sure to “Tail” the eyeliner off at the outer corner of your eye. Usually at the point where your lower eyelid begins.
  • For the inner corner of your eyes, use light, feathering strokes to apply the eyeliner. Do this gently and take your time.
  • Now you can go over the eyeliner if needed to even it out or intensify the line.
  • If you do happen to make any mistakes, using a cotton tip with a small amount of makeup remover can fix them.

As always, take your time and be sure to use a quality gel eyeliner product. With a little practice, you will be creating designer looks in no time that are sure to draw attention to your eyes.

The revival of a French classic, Art-Deco Jewellery

Since the 1920s, art-deco jewellery has been at the forefront of design and fashion. Beginning in France and gaining popularity there for 40 years, it eventually made it’s way to tourists and then outside of Europe.

This type of jewellery was popular due to it’s unique style, the strong angles and twisting lines set it apart from more contemporary jewellery of the day.


Over time and following it’s export, more designs were integrated, such as block like beginnings and finely carved curls in a somewhat square arrangement, largest being in the centre and smaller on the outside and corners. Some designs even appear to look like specific objects, such as animals, insects and flowers / leaves.

The number 1 method however for art-deco jewellery is the geometric abstract shapes that appeal to almost everyone for their uniqueness and talent of the creator. These pieces push the boundaries of modern jewellery and into the realms of the daring and unique.

Some of the more beautiful designs feature extreme colour changes, mostly of the bright and stand-out style, made from twisting coloured glass, while incorporating things such as beads, rhinestones and precious gemstones. The brilliant colours of art-deco jewellery is by far the main drawing point, and the reason why so many homes contain art-deco jewellery today.

The types of objects you find this styling in is always expanding, at the moment the common types are pins, large ear-rings, beautiful necklaces and large wide bracelets in a huge range of designs. They are very popular with people who have a love for gemstones as well as the unique.


Art-deco jewellery was created as an alternative to gold, silver and diamond jewellery, meaning the most basic materials could be used to make jewellery that rivals that of thousand dollar pieces. Since it’s popularity has increased beyond France, this jewellery can be found almost everywhere, especially at craft markets and the like. Being made from basics such as coloured glass and common gemstones, the only real boundary in terms of price comes from how much work the artist has put in, and whether the piece was a one off or many were created.

The price for the most basic pieces, now mass produced, can be as little as $5, all the way up to a few thousand dollars for the most unique, once off creations.

Although the popularity of art-deco jewellery has faded over time, there has been a resurgence in the last 10 years, with many people even targeting second hand stores to find the most perfect pieces made during the 1970’s, ensuring they are even more unique now than they were at the time, and for a few dollars in price too.

Art-deco is a trend that has been given resurgence since the 1970s fashion has once again become popular, with modern manufacturing techniques and even methods that people can now do at home with basic tools, should see this style continue on into the future for many years to come.

Musical Fashion

Fashion is not the only thing I do in my life and that consumes a lot of my free time. Another hobby of mine is music. Whenever I have a moment to spare, I don’t hesitate to dedicate it to looking at items such as this hamer newport. It always puts a smile on my face to do so because I know that I can always buy a musical instrument or an accessory if I feel like it.
