Until one day a friend made the suggestion that should have been obvious to me - to try a coloured liquid liner - something not too dark so that any goofs I made would be less noticeable and then was even kind enough to hand over something from her own makeup bag -
mark. Metal Works Liquid Eyeliner - $10 - in four shimmery shades: Aura, Venus, Dragonfly and Nightrider - offer a long-wearing, vivid and super-shimmery formula that won't smudge or flake and is very easy to apply.
My friend gave me the Aura shade which is a coppery gold which I wear by itself to add subtle shimmer or layer over a pencil liner to add glam. Either way it's impossible to tell when the line is a bit shaky!
I'd like to tell you all to call up your Avon lady to get your very own but sadly, it seems to have been a holiday limited edition product so you'll have to do what I've been doing to get my hands on Venus - troll eBay! Best of luck (unless you snipe Venus from me, in which case - you suck)!
