Having fun and experimenting!!
I believe the only way to get better and further your knowledge of makeup is to practice practice practice!! On my days off I love getting all my makeup out making a mess and just throwing it on and see what happens. The best thing about this is you can make a complete mess of it and there is always a face wipe right there to fix it. it doesn't matter if you look like an idiot as its only you, and how are you going to learn what colours and application methods suit you of you don't try them!
Halloween shouldn't be the only time we can be a bit outrageous! Where's the fun in that?? 
Yesterday I sat and wanted to practice getting my lines accurate and wanted to try different methods so with my Urban Decay Vice Palette, GOSH Eyeliner, and L'Oreal Gel Liner I dove straight in.

I had no plan at all how this was going to turn out and it may not be to everyone's taste but once I started it was impossible to stop. I started with the black eyeliner top and bottom and then just went for it!
Once the first eye was finished, I thought why not do the other eye too :)
Once I had figured out different ways of getting straight lines I tried to fit as many into this look, again its not to everyone's taste but that's the point for me. I had no idea how it would turn out I just loved experimenting.
So the main point of me writing my blog post today is to encourage you to be creative and try new things, so it doesn't matter if you end up looking like this:
I learned to perfect my lines, which colours I liked together and which ones id didn't, what brushes I preferred to get different textures and shapes etc....
Its just a bit of fun that helps you gain better skills, which you can transfer when you are creating more wearable looks, so don't be afraid to go a bit crazy and express yourself!! hope you enjoyed my post guys and, hope you give this a go!!!
