EOTD: Liquid eyeliner, Family Guy, Hemingway and socks

The other night I was on Twitter lamenting about how I don't read as much as I should.

The book which inspired the lament was The Essential Hemingway, a book I had bought and left at work.

I shut the computer down at 11 with the intent to watch Family Guy and start reading some of my other books which needed a good read.

Then I decided to open my makeup drawer..just to have a look inside.

I ended up picking up my liquid liner and seeing if I could get a smooth line across the lid without using a rest for my elbow.

I was pretty shocked when I found out that I could, then I went a bit further and decided to Cleopatra my eye a bit and this is what happened:
This alone is quite a big achievement for me as I couldn't even do this WITH an elbow support back in December.

I got a bit brave and decided to see if I could link it around the bottom..
It turns out that (bar a few extra dabs) I could.

I'm quite pleased with this despite the fact that the liner on the top was a tiiiiiiiny bit patchy but I can iron that out the more I practice.  The one main thing I learnt was that you don't get a decent thick line after one go, you need to do a thin line first and then build it up.

The liner in question is a super cheap one from the local chemist, I think it cost me about £1.  It's really black, dries super fast and doesn't shift until you remove it yourself and even then it doesn't smudge, it comes off in flakes.  If anyone's interested, it's this one:

And check out these gorgeous socks I got on my lunchbreak, they were only a fiver!
I wanted to get a pair of socks that had a brown bear and a white bear (i.e. me and the Rossman) but the lady only had a display pair of those so these socks are me and the Rossman with a tan!

  6. Nooberella: You know you love them! They're so warm, I've been wearing them to work like a sap but the office was freezing. I know exactly what you mean about the cross over arm thing, I used to do it, you could try sitting at a desk and resting your arm on there. I don't know who I managed to pull this off, it was late and I just went for it.

    Divija: Thanks :)

    Lillian: Thank you :) If you want any more, let me know. I can't wait to see the FOTD's you do with them.

    Little Miss Cherry Kisses: You can get it from most places that sell cheap makeup really, like chemists etc..the tip is nice and bendy so that you can control it better.

    Inner Belle: Thank you! I do the same with the nails, I wait like 5 mins and then start typing and get pissed off when one smudges.
