Floral watercolor x Matte
So I finally got around to buying some new polish and I browsed through some nail art inspiration to gain some ideas of what I should do. I finally chose to do ‘watercolor’ flowers with two accent perforated matte nails. I love that they didn’t come out ‘picture perfect’ and they look intentionally ‘messy’ and more of a sketch.

How to Waterline your Eyes
Waterlining is the technique of applying eyeliner to the waterline (or inner rim) of the eyes, this is the area of the eye that is lightly wet and right near the lashes.
"How do I make eyeliner last on my waterline?" is one of the most frequent questions I get asked. The cold hard truth is: no eyeliner will last for hours on end when it comes to the waterline because the area is constantly filled with moisture.
For the waterline I recommend pencil eyeliners (although some people prefer to use gel) kohl pencil eyeliners are much softer on the eyes and grip best, but some waterproof pencils are great as well. Eyeliners I recommend for waterlining are: Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Pencil, Rimmel Soft Kohl Pencil and Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner.
I recommend using brown, grey or a dark navy blue instead of jet black which can often look harsh (although I did for the purpose of this tutorial) Bright, bold coloured eyeliners are great for adding a burst of colour to your eye makeup look whilst nude/white shades are great for making the eyes appear larger.
NOTE: I would not recommend this technique for a day to day basis and would not recommend it for anyone with very sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers. To prevent eye infection I would recommend sharpening the pencil after each use and replacing it every year.
