We love black winged out eyeliner–it’s as classic as a little black dress–but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up and throw in a little colour. Which is why, we’re getting into the summer spirit and showing you how to lighten up your eye makeup with a bright eyeliner.
Here are 4 ways to try this oh-so-perfect-for-summer look:
Add a little spark to your eyes with iridescent or metallic eye liner. Choose a long lasting formula and run over the base of the upper and lower lash lines (keep line thinner toward the inner eye). Use your smudge brush to “smudge” (short back and forth strokes without lifting up the brush) into the root of lashes. Add more liner and blend for more drama.
Pop your eye colour with a brilliant blue or green along the lower waterline. Brown eyes will stand out due to the colour contrast, while blue and green eyes will be enhanced by their complementary colours. #ProTip: Avoid using red, orange and plum tones that close to the eye as it can give you one sickly look.
Play up your eye shape with a layered liner. Run a dark gel liner over the top lash line with your eyeliner brush to define the eye, then layer a vivid liner like above with the side of your precision liner brush.
Keep the classic winged liner but swap out your black liner for an eye-catching shade like.
Is your liner less than perfect? Dip your pointed liner brush into a makeup remover and clean-up blurry edges or imperfect flicks. The brush is perfectly shaped to get into those tight spots, without disrupting the rest of your artwork.
