Kat Von D is a brand that I hadn’t tried until earlier this year when I took a trip to Dubai to meet some friends.  I was really excited to see that there was a Kat Von D counter in the Sephora and treated myself to a few products: a concealer (middle in the pic above), a lipstick and two of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (left and right in the pic above).  I like the concealer and lipstick but I particularly love the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and so thought it was time for a post!!

Post Alert: I recently also treated myself to the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette.  Loooove this palette so much! You can read more on the palette here and see combination ideas here. Continue reading

Adding a sweep of coloured eyeliner to an otherwise neutral eyeshadow look is a nice way to introduce colour to your make-up.  This technique is particularly nice if you fancy trying out colour but find it a little daunting. 

Tip: Sticking to neutral tones of eyeshadow also means you can experiment with different colours of liner.  Try purple, blue, bronze and silver for a twist on the same look.

For this look, I added a slick of a glitter liner (Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Amp) along the lashline to add some sparkle to this aqua-green combination.  I really like the glitter liner adds a little extra something to the look, without changing it too much.
