Today, I will be sharing a very quick and super easy "out of the runway" colored liner look that takes only a minute or less! This post is dedicated to girls who aren't comfortable using colored eye shadow and wants to add some colors to their daily makeup routine! Girls, girls girls..this is where we start! :)
In this tutorial, I am too lazy to pick 2 types of product so I ended up with Estee Lauder Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner Duo in Black and Blue. I'm sure not everyone owns this nifty product so feel free to pick your favorite black and colored liners!
Let's start with the black liner, the Estee Lauder Pure Color is a Kajal Liner so this is a super soft and pigmented liner that smudges easily so it is very important to use your favorite oil-control eye primer prior to liner application. As for me, I used my trustee Urban Decay Primer Potion before proceeding to next step.
Using a hand held mirror, I prefer to look down and gently go through the black liner closest to the last line using small, short strokes.
To some, it is easier to pull your lid upward (gently please!) and fill in excess spaces! Some would tightline but I prefer to skip the tightlining step as my eyes get a bit sensitive and with our tropical weather, tightlining is a top candidate for smudging and panda eyes!
As soon as you're happy with the upper line, pick your choice of colored liner! You can opt for Green, yellow, blue or even purple! As for me, greens work so well for most people with yellow undertone and purple would go well for people with medium to darker skin tone! Keep in mind that there are no strict rules on which color works best for which skin tone! Be creative and adventurous!
This is the first baby blue eyeliner color I own as most of my blue colored liners are metallic blues or dark blues! This color reminded me so much of my favorite crayon! :)
Line the Blue liner on top of the black liner to lessen the harsh line and with short, gentle strokes, smudge both liners close together so you don't get to see 2 separate lines.
Some may prefer to wing the outer corner but I prefer to keep it low-key. As for the lower lash line, I leave it clean to prevent further smudging! If you want to go further, feel free to use the blue liner and apply it on your lower lash line.
Okay, I guess I was smiling too much so the blue liner disappeared a bit, but I promise you, if I'm not smiling, the blue liner shows so well Mr. AMW complimented how cute I look! (Of course, compliment your wife! Number 1 rule to a blissful marriage! :P)
Have you tried picking a colored liner and leave the rest of your face clean and simple?
I always get compliments when I do this trick and I hope you guys give it a try! Do let me know what color you're aiming for!
