Hot Beauty Trend Alert! Cross the Line...

One of the hottest trends this season is an eye-popping stroke of liner, the more creative the better! Laura Mercier have brought out a brand new range of Creme liners in cute little pots, I love the bright cosmic blue shade (so on trend for SS13!) and the rich, dark chocolate brown.

The richly pigmented shades are simply gorgeous, they glide on perfect and last all day. I use the Laura Mercier Angled Eyeliner Brush, £15.00, available from House of Fraser, for all my gel-based liners, it's really good, one of the best I've used for getting a perfect line on the lid. The expresso shade is so dark that it's almost black, a really deep brown. See the swatches below:

Clinique's cream liners are a firm fave for a trusty stroke of eye wonderment. They're my number one choice for  day wear office, so luxe and moisturising. I love the Smoke Grey, so soft and smouldering! The Black Honey shade is really unique, a glistening nutty brown which adds a gentle warmth to the eyelids, while the True Black is a make-up bag must. It's beautifully matte, perfect for a dramatic charcoal finish.

The Clinique liner do come with a brush included in the packaging, but I'm not overly impressed with the quality of it. Instead I use the Laura Mercier angled brush, for a more precise finish.
