Whenever I am inspired, be it by a person, a celebrity, a natural occurrence or simply just something that I happen to catch a fleeting glimpse of, it would compel me to recreate it. They say imitation is the best form of flattery, but there's a bold and defined line between imitation and recreation. The definitions of imitation, inspiration and recreation are usually mixed up but I would not dare cross that line.
Ok before I rant on an on and jump from one topic to the other in one post, let's me get back on track. As I have mentioned in my most recent K-Pop Idol Featurette, I am a huge fan of her dark, smoldering stares all thanks to her dark and heavy eye make-up. Though in reality, I cannot sport that look everyday, especially at daytime. The most I can pull off is putting on dark eyeliner. But there's a catch: I am quite inexperienced with liquid eyeliner.
Last week, Shiny Pretty Things wrote a post, Eyeliner Tutorial which is really helpful and very simple. She even teaches us nooblets how to wing out the eyeliner, which is something I have been itching to do, but unfortunately, could not.
Alas, my ongoing struggle with the liquid eyeliner is finally turning towards my favor. I was able to decently put on liquid eyeliner and woots woots, I'm winging it! Pardon the over excitement on my part, this is sort of a tiny triumph on my part, and since this is my blog, let me bask in my very short moment of glory *lol*.

|Love how this defines my eyes' shape|
So, my biggest thanks to Shiny Pretty Things' tutorial. I've always wanted to try this out, but I kept messing up the wing >.<" But her tips on how to create it really helped, a lot. And I'm really pleased with the end result. I always enjoyed putting my eyes on the spotlight whenever I do my make-up. And with this sort of eyeliner technique, it's all about the eyes, baby.
