Open up those big (brown) eyes

waterliner-makeup - 1You know when you are veeeeeery tired and your eyes barely open? I am guilty as charged of now having enough sleep, staying late on school nights and maybe having the odd cocktail when I should really be in bed.

I first discovered it using the multi-tasking NYX Wonder Pencil.

Recently, I encountered the Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighter pencil, which also doubles up on other parts of the face.

The NYX Wonder Pencil costs £4.50 and the Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities highlighter pencil, £14.95.
