Coloured Eye Liner doesn’t have to be scary and it doesn’t necessarily have to be used just in the traditional sense. This is a look I do alot when I want to do something fun, but don’t want to faff about too much. It’s simple and packs a punch 🙂
Here’s the mug with some foundation and brows done.
To begin with I took a taupe shadow and added some definition into the crease, you know the drill by now if you’ve read my blog before 🙂
I want to keep the lid colour pretty simple but still look ‘done’ if that makes sense? Satin Taupe from Mac is a brilliant colour for this.
I packed this all over the lid.
To blend it out and deepen up the crease I used a warm brown on a tapered brush in the crease.
Then to just conceal any redness and lighten up the brow bone, I added a light shimmery shadow.
I did a thin line of brown liner to the top lashes.
And added some concealer and added some mascara.
Not necessary but for a little definition, I used a couple of my beloved Penneys individual lashes on both eyes.
I added a little wash of Satin Taupe under my eye and some mascara.
I used Makeup Geek’s Shimma Shimma in my inner corner.
Then onto the fun part, the liner 🙂
I chose one of my all time favourites but anything you have that’s pigmented will work. You could even put a light liner on and then add some shadow of your choice over top.
This is Inglot’s Matte Amc Gel liner in 87, I’ll put a link to it here
Mine has certainly seen better days but a drop of Duraline (review here) brings it back to life.
I use a pencil to apply gel liner to my waterline. I find a brush too ticklish and uncomfortable, so dipping a liner pencil into the gel works for me, even if it’s not the same colour. You can always wipe it off after you use it 🙂
And the eyes are done! An easy coloured eye liner look 🙂
This is one of my favourite looks to do and as you can see it’s so simple. I always get compliments too which is nice.
Here’s the finished look.
