Do you have a signature style or look that you wear almost every day? I have a friend who is never seen without a statement red lip, whilst another would never leave the house without her power brow. I’m quite fickle with lip colours, but when it comes to a item of make up that I would never be seen without, it has to be my black winged eye liner. It’s quite funny how a black line across you eyelid can alter your look so much, and the odd time that I may choose not to wear it, brings questions about my health and if I’m feeling ok. It’s a black line. I’ve been playing around with eyeliners lately, and after falling in love with the Cat Eye Liner from Zoeva, I’ve been trying to update my look for a seasonal change. I’ve found these fab little liners on Beauty Bay from Eye of Horus, and they’re the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your eyes.
Eye of Horus make up is based on making the most of your eyes using ancient Egyptian formulas and natural ingredients such as Moringa Oil, which is known for its rejuventing properties. The Eye of Horus Liquid Metal eye liners are available in four shades, of which I have two; Copper Sphinx and Alchemy Gold. A traditional liquid liner applicator is housed in a colour coordinated tube for easy selection, and the long handle of the applicator makes it even easier for steady, controlled application. The formulation is cruelty free as well as being nut, gluten and paraben free.
The formulation is made using Evening Primrose Oil, Lavender Flower water and Aloe Vera Leaf extract to help keep lids soft and without causing irritation. Each liner needs shaking well before use to mix the metallic pigments within the formula, however my Copper Sphinx shade seems to be a bit loose in formulation, and when applying it’s quite broken up with the pigments causing clumps of glitter. Not all is lost though as I have been building this shade up over the top of black winged liner for a pop of metal and more autumn inspired look. Alchemy Gold works a lot better when worn alone as the liner formulation is opaque and metallic as it should be. Worn alone, under the lower lash line or over the top of black liner, it’s a really gorgeous shade and so easy to wear.
I’m really tempted to pick up another Copper Sphinx to get the full effect as I love wearing orange based shades, as well as the Ancient Pewter and Imperial Bronze shades. They are available at Beauty Bay, with a full range of Eye of Horus products, all designed to make eyes look amazing.
