Making Eyes

Sorry, sorry, sorry, I’ve been a terrible blogger. I was in LA for a lot of March and couldn’t seem to focus on any internet-related activities while there. When the sun is shining, it just seems a little ungrateful to stay holed up inside reading blogs and sending emails. And while I didn’t quite embrace the healthy hiking and gym lifestyle that LA is famous for, I did drink a lot of beer whilst wearing a bikini, an activity that is as rejuvenating and fulfilling as any mountain trek.

I also managed to fit in a trip to make-up and beauty emporium Sephora. When it comes to beauty products I’m a one man (or one foundation/lipstick/powder) kind of girl. Once I find a product I like, I remain slavishly devoted to it. I’ve had a completely monogamous relationship with Kat Von D eyeliner for over two years now. Kat Von D is, I gather, some sort of tattooed reality show star and while her image is pretty much the diametrical opposite of mine, I love her eyeliner so much that I will overlook the fact that the packaging conjures up pictures of Bombshell McGee and other Jesse James types.

This eyeliner goes on incredibly easy, making perfect little ticks and staying put for hours. Then it slides off with a gentle cleanser. Prior to discovering it, I had tried several more expensive and well-known brands but nothing came close for precision or staying power. It’s only available at American branches of Sephora though, so it is one of those things – along with Lucky Charms and Butterfingers – that you must request from US-based friends. LE
