    Liquid liner is not revivable as far as I know. Gel is - a cheap alternative is to use eyedrops.

    I tend to stick to 'cheaper' liquid liners. Maybelline ones are really good actually. They have glossy and matte.

    Also I would not revive mascara due to bacteria. Again - cheaper mascara usually does a good job

    Dior powder. Urban Decay eye primer.

    Previously I used to use MAC eye products, but twice I had their liquid liner dry out on me in a short amount of time, so I gave up. I also found the wear of their eye shadows wasn't long enough for me.
    What kind of skin type do you have? Try a primer that suits your skin type first (if oily - a mattifying primer and a matte/satin finish foundation and for dry more satin/dewy foundation with a moisturing primer. For combo ise a bit of both!). Use thin layers of foundation. Then powder gently. And for a long lasting base you can use a setting spray (a lot of people rave about the urban decay setting sprays).

    I have also seen a beauty guru use Nivea aftershave balm for sensitive skin as a primer. Due to the glycerin the foundation 'sticks' better.

    Again go to a beauty counter. Discuss your skin. Get samples and have a play around with it all

I'm not a fan of makeup sponges...seems unhygienic to me. At least I can wash my brush with liquid soap or a drop of shampoo.
    Lisa Eldridge is amazing. Has class and is an actual working artist.

    I also like Charlotte Tilbury.

    I really like Sigma make up brushes for all make up application. Bobbi Brown also had nice brushes and Chanel.
    To apply foundation I use a flat foundation brush or the sigma flat top kabuki - it changed my life!

    Oh I loooove my makeup, to bad I don't go out enough to go all out. Although I do indulge in a light colour smokey eye during the day if I'm out and about.
    My favourite brands are Chanel, Mac and Estèe Lauder.
    My biggest problem is dry skin, so most foundations make me flaky, I use Mac bb, as a base or if it's just an ordinary day I leave it at that, otherwise I use Chanel lift lumiere, it's awesome, and for loose powder the only one that doesn't cause flakiness for me is Mac.
    I love my brushes, Mac brushes are expensive but absolutely fantastic, I have about 7, the first 2 I bought I was told just to wash with baby shampoo and dry them at an angle with the bristles down, about 5yrs later they're still looking new.

    I'm in need of a good eye primer does anyone have any recommendations?

    A highlighter for around the eye area? I had the Clinique airbrush concealer which was ok, but I thought I'd try something else.

    How about a good setting spray?

    Best eye primers IMO are:
    Mac paint pot
    Urban decay primer potion
    NARS pro prime

    Best eye concealer and highlighter:
    Clinique airbrush
    YSL touché eclat

    My current favourite product is Benefit "gimme brow" which gives me instant brow
    I also love benefit "brow zing" because brows end up flawless but it's more work with the wax first then the powder. I'm all about brows at the moment trying to draw attention away from my wrinkles!

    Estée Lauder's double wear I found to be a great tubular mascara. At the moment I have a dior mascara but I'm not sure if it's tubular.

    I usually buy my Estée Lauder stuff when they have the gift bags on offer, so I usually get a mascara in those packs.
