Rimmel London Colour Precise Eye Liner Review

Since working on NYX Cosmetics I’ve been keen on trying out more affordable brands and surprised with what I have found so far. I do confess, I am an absolute eyeliner hoarder. If I leave my house without eyeliner on my eyes people always ask me if I’m unwell as I don’t look myself. I am fully aware I do look like a naked mole rat without some sort of eyeliner on my eye so I do try to wear it 90% of the time.

With that said, I am always keen on trying new eyeliners out, whatever the colour, formula or application.

I picked up Rimmel’s newest eyeliner when it caught my eye in June, boasting of it’s 24 hour wear and pigmented formula.

Read on to see how I got on with it!

I’m setting myself a makeup challenge to do 100 looks which are all different and inspired by different things. They won’t be every day, but I’m going to try and be as active as possible! So far I’m on day 3, and I’m getting inspired by colours. I’ve done a dramatic, basic and cut crease look so far. I’m going to look at my favourite artists, inspiration from my room and life, other people and try and get back into some special effects stuff too. Why not join in with the fun and follow my Instagram to see regular looks!

Here are the 3 I have done so far over the past few days.

Day 1 was inspired by red, all contouring and brows were done with shades of red also.

Day 2 was yellow, so I thought I’d do a wearable yellow look as I had places to go and things to do.

Day 3 was Green, so I decided to do a harsh cut crease with black liner, and green highlight on my cheek.

So far I’m finding it really fun to do and it has helped me improve. I have already speeded up my brow routine and base from these three days of doing it! Wonder what is in store next!

How to: Eyeliner

A question I get asked very often is how do I apply eye liner. The easiest answer I can give anyone is practice a lot. Get a cheap eye liner and practice by applying then removing. Repeat until you get the hang of it.

When I started trying out eye liners, I bought a Collection (2000) eye liner and sat down for a good 2 hours just applying different thicknesses and ways. Along my make up journey I have found, for myself, that applying eye liner with my eye open and looking down slightly in a mirror is the most effective method. Below are mini tutorials for two of the quickest ways I have found to do eye liner. One using freehand, and one using tape and finishing off with concealer.

For this tutorial I’ll be using a gel liner and a nail art brush, as they’re thin and can pick up product smoothly. For me, gel is smooth, easy to remove, usually water proof and if you want to blend out to create a smoky look or drag the eye liner across the eye it’s easiest with this type of liner. It’s very versatile for your unique looks and also can be used in the waterline and to tightline.

Contact lens friendly makeup, does it exist?

I have worked in the makeup industry professionally for around 3 years now, and I have to admit, I didn’t really understand what anyone was talking about when they’d ask me “Is this contact lens friendly?”

And being a newcomer with lenses I still don’t understand.

So what exactly is contact lens friendly makeup?! And what products are suitable?
