It's no secret that I am a bonafide beauty junkie, always thrilling in the discovery of the best of the bunch when it comes to ways to pamper and perfect.  Makeup looks are also something I tend to fall in love with and one of my most-loved is the perfectly lined eye.  Cleanly defined with a striking swipe of ebony, this look goes back more than half a century ago when women were coyly playful and their makeup look served as the perfect match.  The look still stands strong today, from modern day icons like Adele to everyday girl bloggers like Jenny Cipoletti and Chriselle Lim, making it a most-coveted glamorous look.  The secret lies in a strong tipped pen liner, steady hand and lush shade of black.  My favorite pick for getting the job done has been Stila's "Stay the Day" liquid pen liner.  Recently, however, I discovered this unassuming little gem from Sephora.  It's actually half the price of my original choice and works (dare I say) even better.  It's definitely worth a look.  Other must-haves for getting this look right are a nude or white shadow, really great mascara and stay put eyebrow pencil to frame the look out.  With tools in hand, the how-to is next.  While I don't have my own step by step video on how to create this look, this one here by Michelle Phan gives easy steps for doing it yourself.  Take a look and if you feel inspired try these products linked below to get the look at home.  

Have a beautiful Wednesday!
