I’ve been googling makeup tips a lot recently, something I kept coming across was spoons! You can use them as a stencil for eye liner and eyeshadow, to stop eyeshadow landing on your cheek and to stop mascara going onto your upper eyelid, apparently.
So this morning I came to the makeup section of my bedroom armed with a selection of cutlery. First was liquid liner. I used the flat of the handle for the underside of the flick, and the curved part for the top.
One thing I did figure out while rooting in the kitchen drawer- you could use a cocktail stick or a coffee stirrer for getting powder out of little jars of pigment/eyeshadow eg. Barry M or MAC. MAC actually sell a specific spatula just for this purpose, it’s £16!
