The last time I touched an actual stamp was in my younger years when what I thought was a flourishing talent for memory preservation turned out to be little more than a photo destroying operation. So, I’m not much of a scrapbooker but I do believe in stamping. Here’s why.

Why I love it: it’s one of the easiest ways to get your liner straight and really close to your lashes!
What You’ll need:
a flat liner brush + creme or gel liner (I love It Cosmetics & L’Oreal for a less expensive option)
Pair it with: Anything! This liner look is so basic, like your favorite white tee, it goes with everything.
Start by dipping your brush into the liner pot, just enough to coat the tip.
Then starting at the outer corner of your eye, press in (just like you would a stamp) right at the lash line all the way to the inner corner.
You can stop there if you just want the upper lid lined, which looks something like this:
or if you want to have a lower line as well (try both see which one you prefer or which one you’re in the mood for – no right or wrong!)
I usually stamp very lightly on the outer corner at the lashes a little more than half way to the other corner. Stamping it lighter each time so it fades away gradually.
It’s awesome because it’s a pretty wide tip so it makes creating a straight precise line really easy!
(I took these photos right before William came and I can’t help but notice how well rested I look! Ah…. Uninterrupted Sleep, you illusive creature you. I hope we meet again someday:)
