We've all been bopping away to Ariana Grande's new single break up with your girlfriend, im bored, and while watching the music video for the tune, we couldnt help but notice Ari's striking makeup look. 

Featuring her classic tanned complexion and strong winged eyeliner, the singer looked sultry, glam, and flawless in the eye makeup department. 

It turns out that the eyeliner used in the video is from an IRISH brand, and can be picked up in Penneys.

Ariana Grande’s make-up artist, Rokael Lizama announced last night that he used Carter Beauty by Marissa Carter Supreme Gel Liner to create the iconic liner look

Taking to Instagram, he posted a snap of Ari's look from the video, saying:

'For all the #Arianators asking I used @carterbeautycosmetics @marissacarter Supreme Gel Liner so in love with the way the tip is super fine and its jet black and smudge-proof.'

The liner can be picked up in Penneys and a whole host of pharmacies nationwide. 

Best of all, it's only €4.95. 

Carter Beauty is also a proud member of  PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies Cruelty-Free programme



Makeup can give you that special finishing touch for any prom look, so you can stand out from the crowd. Whether you are going for a low-key or high-fashion look, you want to make sure your makeup is done to perfection.

Although it would be lovely to have a professional come and do your makeup for the big night, this is not an affordable luxury for most people. We've got a few quick tips and tricks to help you take charge and get prom ready in no time, no stress.

Dress to Impress

You've probably spent a lot of time finding your dream prom dress, so it's important to centre your makeup look on it. Your makeup and dress should always compliment one another, rather than compete for attention.

For example, if you were wearing prom dresses in bright colours with embellishments such as this gorgeous number from JJ's House, a complimentary makeup look would be matching red lipstick with light eye makeup.

A heavily made-up eye area would be too busy for this style of dress and completely overdo your overall look.

If you're wearing a plainer style of dress like this JJ's House velvet gown, you can combine sultry, smoky eyes with your red lipstick as it's a makeup look that compliments the material and these styles of prom dresses.

Mirrored Magnificence

It might not usually be a good idea to copy other people's work or ideas, but when it comes to makeup looks, it's practically a recommendation!

We often see celebrities or models made up in a way that we think will suit us too – prom can be the perfect place to try it out!

The key to making this look work can be summed up in one word: practice! If you leave it until prom day to try it out, chances are it will be a complete disaster – it might look like a mess or just not look as good as you thought it would.

Prom night is not the time to work this out.

If you want to mirror the look of your favourite celebrity, practice and preparation are the best ways for you to get there.

Testing 1, 2, 3

One of the biggest things most people forget to do is make sure their makeup looks good in pictures. This is something that again is best to practice and prepare before the big night.

Flash photography can wash out your skin and makeup, and can make you look pasty and startled! You would be shocked to know what the biggest culprit for this is: moisturiser – or more specifically, moisturiser with sunscreen in it.

The sunscreen reflects the flash, completely washes out your face and mismatches the tone from your body.

Make sure you plan ahead and check to make sure the face cream or foundation you use on prom night does not include sunscreen. If it's only a small amount, you can try and take photos to test how reflective it might be.



If you have not yet to be introduced to the whimsical world of Storybook Cosmetics, boy are you in for a treat.

The novelty makeup brand are famous for there literary- themed products which include everything from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory palettes to Beauty and the Beast makeup brushes – but its latest offering may just be its most magical yet.

After teasing the concept last year, the Harry Potter eyeliner quill has finally arrived.


A post shared by @storybookcosmetics on

The set includes a gorgeous metal brush, weighted stand, and of course, the most beautiful little jar of gel eyeliner you have ever seen.

The matte formula is completely water resistant, vegan, gluten-free and cruelty free – just in case you weren't sold already.

Unsurprisingly, this stuff is in high demand, so Storybook have advised customers to allow up to two weeks for shipping.


A post shared by @storybookcosmetics on

At $39.00 (€32.00), this isn't the cheapest eyeliner we've ever come across, but hey, the packaging alone is enough to make us look past that.

So, whether you're feeling like a little mid-week treat, or know a makeup-loving muggle who would be all over this, you can get your hands on your very own Harry Potter eyeliner quill over on storybookcosmetics.com.



An American beauty brand has come under fire after they gave one of their products a hugely offensive name.

The internet has expressed disgust toward Smith & Cult, a brand famous for their nail polishes, after beauty blogger, Talonted Lex, spotted the name of their new eyeliner.

She had been sent the product by the company's PR and was shocked to discover that it was named 'Wax Spastic'.

Twitter users were understandably disappointed at the brands blatant insensitivity.

In the UK and Ireland the word 'spastic' is used as a derogatory term for someone who is disabled and is incredibly offensive.

However, according to Cosmopolitan, in the US, the term simple means someone who is clumsy or awkward.

So, it looks like the message may have been lost in translation, but we're still baffled as to how the word ever made in onto the packaging in the first place. Surely a quick google search would have stopped any confusion?

Lex later tweeted a response from Smith & Cult:

A spokesperson for the company told Cosmopolitan that the product has now been removed from sale.

“We have immediately removed the item from sale. Although the understanding of the word in US is very different we have to take responsibility, and recognise that as an international brand we must do better, and will take urgent steps to do this.”



We seem to buy a pack of them every week but lose them almost instantly, and a good portion of our down time is spent wondering where they all end up.

Bobby pins, hair pins, or kirby grips, whatever you may call them, those little metal hair slides are the latest ingredient in the ideal eyeliner hack. 

Achieving the perfect cat-eye flick with liquid eyeliner can be a tricky affair, and anything that makes the application easier is worth trying in our opinion. 


A post shared by Malia (@beautynmalia) on

Instagram MUAs and YouTube beauty vloggers alike have been utilising the humble bobby pin in the pursuit of the purrfect cat-eye, and we think it's a pretty genius idea.

The only tools you need are your liquid eyeliner of choice and a large bobby pin, if you can find one.

Then all you have to do is paint the liner onto the open end of the bobby pin and stamp it on the outer corner of your eye.

This motion creates the winged tip, and because it's a stamp, you can recreate the exact same wing on the other eye.

Then all you have to do is fill in the lines, simple. 

Now to find a few bobby pins to try this trick, since they like to disappear into the abyss whenever we stock up on them.



New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and while the fashion is amazing, it is the beauty that we are really loving this year.

One amazing new launch comes courtesy of M.A.C Cosmetics (of course), and it will change the way you do your makeup forever. 

Professional makeup artist Michael Patterson revealed the new eyeliner on his Instagram, and we instantly fell in love. 

"New eye liner alert! A roller liquid liner for razor sharp definition. Pizza cutter sharpness" he wrote.  

The roller eyeliner seems to be made of a soft material that makes drawing cat flicks and steady lines a dream. 

While no official launch date has been released, we know that the product will come in three gorgeous shades.

We cannot wait!  


Calling all pizza lovers, the famous junk food has officially made it into the beauty hall of fame.

While the term "pizza liner" conjures up gross and greasy thoughts, the actual look has less to do with IRL pizza and more to do with achieving a flick so sharp it looks like a perfectly cut slice.

And then adorning it with cheese and pepperoni, of course.

Beauty Youtuber Cass Isel Lopez showcased her love of the popular dish by uploaded a photo of this outrageously delicious look to Instagram, and her fans we're mad for it.

We've already had unicorn liner and knife liner, so why not culinary creations? 

We might try this out there makeup trend in the comfort of our own homes, just to see if we can make a good job of it. 

However this look definitely isn't going to be worn outside of those four walls, unless we're heading up to Dominos for collection. 



2017 has already gifted us with a number of new beauty trends, and it's still only January. 

The latest thing taking over the world of makeup is underliner, and we are totally obsessed with it. 

Think back to the '90s, when you would smudge eyeliner underneath your eye for a more "grunge" look… well it's kind of like that, but cooler.

We first saw this trend on the runway of the Chanel Spring show back in 2014, and now it's back!

The beauty of this glorious look is that it can be done with any colour, and in a number of different styles and shapes.

Brace yourselves!

2016 has been a pretty WEIRD year in the world of beauty trends (and in general). 

A popular trend that came up numerous times this year was weird (and sometimes wonderful) liquid eyeliner looks. 

We have done a lovely little round-up of some of 2016's craziest eyeliner trends… for your viewing pleasure. 

WARNING: some of them are sort of terrifying…

That's a wrap on 2016… roll on the NEW MAKEUP YEAR! 


OK, so we admit that as a group, we are self-diagnosed beauty junkies… and PROUD of it. 

We are always on the lookout for cool or weird new products to add to our growing collections.

Enter: panda eyeliner.

During a recent Amazon investigation, I discovered the most adorable panda-themed liquid eyeliners, EVER. 

Now, I will admit, on the scheme of things, these are probably not the highest quality ever… but look how CUTE, though! 

However, you can justify this delightful purchase, as it will only set you back a reasonable €2!

Talk about the perfect stocking-filler! 


Are you the kind of person that struggles with liquid eyeliner, no matter how many times you use it?

Yeah well… same.

Achieving that perfect Adele-like flick seems like something of legends, but it is now very VERY doable.

Thanks to a new invention, called the Vamp Stamp, creating that wonderful cat-eye effect has never been easier.


The beautiful @elliekathryne does it her way by angling the VaVaVoom stamp straight out. Love how she owns her Vamp. #wingit

A video posted by The Vamp Stamp® (@the_vampstamp) on

The tool is a double-ended V-shaped stamp that helps you achieve a cat-eye in approximately two seconds… no joke!

Seriously check out the videos for proof… it makes it look SO easy!


Another day, another wing

A video posted by The Vamp Stamp® (@the_vampstamp) on

Simply dip the stamp in your pot of black eyeliner, line it up at the outer corner of your eye where you want your flick to go, and away you go!

The kicker is that the Vamp Stamp isn't available yet, but according to their Instagram, we should expect them "very soon".

We'll be waiting…
