This 12 months we’re weaving in a brand new knockout fashion that’s gently edgy, fashionable and principally made in your LVD (little velvet costume, obvi). Discover ways to put on coloured eyeliner from inexperienced celeb make-up guru, Katey Denno, and take a look at how she painted it on Cara Delevingne right here…
We’re at the moment experiencing a time in trend and wonder historical past when there are not any guidelines – significantly relating to make-up. In the future a daring furry forehead is a should, the subsequent it’s all in regards to the contrasting lip and cheek shade. One thing known as the ‘unicorn spotlight’ is all the fashion sooner or later, and the subsequent magazines are calling for nothing however bare, matte cheekbones.
This absence of ‘must-dos’ works in our favor, for certain, and I’d wish to encourage you to strive one thing that you simply’d beforehand thought wasn’t for you. And I’d wish to recommend that perhaps that factor that you simply’ve by no means tried however goes to turn out to be your new favourite is coloured eyeliner. Use one with bits of shimmer, and also you not want flashy jewellery round your face; your eyes are your dazzling, amped up, jewels.
Similar to there’s no rule dictating that you could solely put on black or brown liner, there’s additionally no arduous quick rule for the place precisely to position your liner. The choices are infinite, and really depend upon what you want greatest. Right here’s how you can put on coloured eyeliner…
how you can – THE CHUNKY, CREAMY EYESHADOW STICK
The best kind of eyeliner that actually works for all eye shapes is the chunky, creamy eyeshadow stick.
It’s a misnomer to name it only a shadow, as a result of it does double responsibility; smear it throughout your lids and mix it into form along with your finger, and also you’ve obtained an eyeshadow factor taking place. However use a dome-shaped brush or a lipstick brush to select up product, after which swipe it alongside the highest (and in between) your lashes… and it’s an entire totally different factor. Way more refined and deliberate than a sweep of shadow, however much less fussy and exact than an precise tight line of liner. It may be as densely pigmented or as sheer as you need, if you happen to apply it this manner.
Fall/winter favorites: Ilia ‘Take On Me.’ Suppose: sheer, deep pink wine blended with metallic shimmer. It’s so good. Juice Magnificence ‘Fog’ is a creamy charcoal gray that appears incredible smudged round all eye colours – particularly with a number of coats of mascara to make it actually pop!
how you can – conventional PENCIL LINER
The standard pencil liner, solely not in black or brown, is one other very simple to use, good-for-all-eye-shapes choice. Smudge – or draw a exact line – with a pencil liner alongside the highest lashes, and a light-weight smudge of shade alongside the outer third of the underside lash line. I have a tendency to love the look of a barely smudged liner (until I’m going for the crisp, clear look of, say, a cat eye), and I like to smash the colour into the lash line (in between lashes and alongside the highest of them) earlier than placing on mascara.
An actual showstopper: Ilia’s ‘My Era,’ a hybrid of muted violet and deep wealthy pink that appears wonderful on brown, inexperienced, and hazel eyes.
how you can – dramatic Liquid liner
Some lids look greatest utterly coloured in with an exaggerated wing or with solely probably the most whisper skinny line with no tail in any respect. Liquid liner is by far probably the most troublesome for most individuals to get the dangle of, however when you do (full disclosure: I nonetheless battle with it generally), you’ll really feel such as you run the world.
Vacation selections: Zuzu liquid liner in ‘Peacock,’ which is the best considerably electrical, deep inexperienced. It’s a daring assertion, however one which deserves a strive.
