Get the look – flash of coloured eyeliner..

With mask wearing the new normal, from a make-up point of view it becomes all about the eyes. Apparently eye make-up sales are booming while lipstick is taking a bit of a nose dive, or so I’ve been reading! I then also read a post today about ditching make-up altogether because of the heat!

A simple flash of coloured eyeliner along the top lash line is such an easy look to do – it brightens the face, adds fun and also has good staying power if applied well so shouldn’t sweat off in the heatwave!

This is a look I did for BYBI earlier in the year. They wanted to add some fun for the launch of their C-Caf Cream.

For this look I used a pot of pigment from Give Face – I used Cos Play Polypigment (NB this does contain polyester) and a flat liner brush. One of my favourite brushes is the Nanshy Angled Detailer. Use this wet in any eyeshadow or pigment pot and your liner possibilities are endless!

Make sure you ‘push’ the colour right into your lash line and if doing a flick look straight into your mirror to get your shape right.

Of course coloured pencils are a great way to add a flash of colour too. I’m a big fan of the Benecos ones.

Here are some ideas for other colours!!

Are you a fan of coloured eyeliner?

    Hey Sibylle, thanks for your comment! What about a dark blue or dark green? That way it’s not in your face so to speak but a gentle lift and something different if you fancy it!
