Make do and Mend!
I am a great advocate of a feline flick of eyeliner and consider going out without it as horrifying as going out without clothes on so you can imagine my dismay when my eyeliner pen ceased to draw a flawless black line any more and I didn't have a back up (Boots doesn't exist where I live so this wasn't an easily solvable problem) knowing I wouldn't be able to replace it for a few days - after a bit of a panic - I persevered but ended up looking bloody awful. Then my Birchbox arrived and it was like my guardian angel had been listening to my prayers because there was a gel eyeliner and right then and there I decided I was forever in Birchboxes debt and would never, ever, ever cancel my subscription in thanks, that was until I tried out the gel eyeliner and couldn't get to grips with the little brush. At this point I was about to give up hope and go out with a naked top lid until I had a strike of inspiration and dipped my dried up eyeliner pen in the gel eyeliner which gave it a new lease of life! If you're like me and live in a village that doesn't have anything, you need to keep your eyeliner pen going until you can reach civilisation and don't get on using anything else to apply it with, if you've got something like a gel eyeliner knocking around then get dipping because that beautiful black line will be back!!
Today is absolutely miserable so just in case the weather is getting you down I'll leave you with a picture that made me giggle.
