Spoonie Make-Up | I Promise I'm Awake

One of make-ups uses is for us spoonies to mask how ill we are. While I have invisible illnesses, I still look rougher than the average bear when I haven't slept for 9 hours. I have found a quick and effortless trick to looking more awake by using Dynamic liquid eyeliner from Lush, as eyeshadow.

*** These pictures were taken on a rubbish phone camera and my left eyebrow wasn't co-operating at all that day but I hope you get what I'm on about :) ***

As with my Lips and Lashes look I use these products:


And whatever lip balm or gloss I feel like on the day. 

The Eyeliner is a gorgeous, shimmery, orangey gold with hints of peach. It sparkles in a way that brightens your eyes right up. You look so awake!! It makes any blue in your eyes pop and distracts people from any signs of fatigue. All it takes is a line of this across your eyelid smudged and blended out to give the affect that you're a healthy person who knows exactly what's going on. Hell, it'll make people believe you understand what they're saying to you when your brain is full of fog and only picking up on key words.

I love the way that as it dries and settles, you get more of the product along your lash line so it looks like you've applied shadow and liner rather than cheated. It also looks lush. 

I use this shade of blush with it because it is the lightest I have and also adds a little more shimmer to the party. It has a bit of orange in it somewhere to compliment the eyeliner-shadow, too. Also, the name reminds me of ballet which makes me happy.

I enjoy this look in the spring and summer as the colours are all bright, light and pretty. I'm sure the eye“liner” will go with some nice bronzer, peachy or goldy blush and all sorts. I will definitely be wearing it with highlighter when the sun comes out of hibernation. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on make-up or anything - I'm sure you know more about how to wear a single eyeshadow, but I'm quite good at faking healthy!

Do you use any Lush eyeliners or have any tips on saving energy with make-up? I'd love to know!

Have a sparkly day!


  1. I can't go into Lush stores as the smell kills my head, but I'm definitely going to be checking the ingredients online & if they're ok will either order online or send my sister in to pick one up for me as it looks & sounds fantastic! Particularly that you can create a shadow/liner look all in one! Xx

    1. It lasts forever, too! So glad the shop assistant recommended that particular shade to me that fateful day I tried to do make-up after years and years of none :) If you click the link in the post the ingredients are there :) xx

  2. I love this look lise! It's pretty and simple and brings out your eyes. I've wanted to try the lush eyeliner for a while now and seeing as I'm running out of eyeliner I may get some from lush xx

    1. Thank you! I can't wait from spring to come around so I can live in it again! I've heard great things about the black one - not used it yet! The ones I have used I've almost always blended out and used as eyeshadow so far... this has nothing to do with how well it works as eyeliner but my absolute lack of skill :)

  3. Sooo pretty! The only Lush makeup product I've tried is Jackie Oates, which was okay!

    1. Jackie Oates is my colour but it's not vegah, waaaa. I've been considering going back to the colour supplement way of life lately - I use Light Yellow with moisturiser, love it! :) The Oxford Shop Street has loads of exclusives that look amazing!

  4. I've never tried Lush makeup but if it makes me look awake and like I know whats going on then I definitely need to give it a go. Looks stunning on you
