This is not the most interesting blog post title I have ever come up with. I do try to keep them simple though because I never want to mislead anyone. I am going through a bit of a winged liner phase. I never in a million years thought I would write those words. Winged liner to me has always been a struggle to do. I also never really thought it suited my eye shape particularly. But, social media has swayed me. I uploaded a couple of pics to my Instagram page of me rocking a winged liner and some lovely people said some lovely things. Thank you by the way! One was me wearing a black liner, and I do love this look, but I think brown liquid liner for me is where it is at!
Black liner is a very specific look. When you choose to rock it is the usually the main focus. Well on me it definitely is. I don’t have extremely big eyes, so it makes them smaller and more almond shaped. I also have more hooded eyes. And, as much as it pains me to say it, the older I get the more apparent it is.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I will still wear black liquid liner when the feeling takes me. But, I have come to the conclusion that brown liquid liner suits me more.
It’s just a softer more wearable way to wear liquid liner and a flick in my humble makeup opinion. I feel less intimidated by it and feel like it’s less of a statement. As I said, creating winged liner is not something I am great with. I overthink it and my left eye seems to know when it’s happening and goes in to twitch overload at the sight of the applicator 🙂
I have two in my stash at the moment. The first one is a Catrice Metallic Liquid Liner in ‘Bronze Lee’ (good name ha).
I feel like the bronzed shade of this suits my eye colour well and the formula is really nice and smooth. It’s something a little different without being too crazy.
The second one I have in rotation is the Maybelline Master Precise in ‘Forest Brown’.
This a matte, deeper brown.
Both of these have a pointed felt tip applicator. For me, this seems to be what I get one with the best. I generally use tape to position where my flick will go. Because my eyes are hooded, I try my best not to go to heavy with the general line and I keep the flick pretty short. But, long enough that you can see it when my eyes are open.
I love coloured eyeliner too! I did a look here a while ago using one of the Nyx Vivid Brights liners. This shows you how I use tape to create my flick aswell.
Are you a brown liquid liner fan? Or is black your go to?
