Playing with colour is one of my favourite parts about wearing makeup so naturally, I have just about every colour you could name. It can be hard to include some of the crazier colours in your day to day look, but as I have said before, using an eye liner is the way to go for that perfect little stand out shade. Pencil liners are some of the most versatile so here are a few of my personal favourites and a few looks that you can incorporate that bright colour into.
To separate close set eyes or make your eyes look a bit bigger, adding a bright colour into the inner corner will add that extra pop of colour and step up the look. For example, a beautiful sliver like the one I used above. This Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl eye liner is one of my favourites Rimmel products that I have used in several looks before.
Next, adding a rather large amount of colour all over the lid will totally change a look. Using a bright colour as a base will give you an nice and bright undertone to your eyeshadow without it taking over the look. I like using this technique quite a bit but to prevent creasing, I do have to set it with a powder. I have a few tutorials using the Rimmel Scandaleyes liner but more recently, the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Freak. Urban Decay has a wide range of creamy liners in just about every colour imaginable.
The most frequent use of a bright eye liner that I have seen is right on the waterline. If you do it right with a bit of smudging and blending, it can look all kinds of amazing. Make Up For Ever does colour very, very well so it isn’t shocking that their MUFE Aqua Eyes pencil liners are fantastic for this area. Waterproof is key under the eyes. I own the beautiful blue shade in 15L which was in my “Feelin’ Blue” post back in March and in the picture above.
Lastly, we have the wing. When I was first experimenting with make up, I tried out a look that I still love today using the Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil in Banana Split. Another line with a million and one colours to choose from and a waterproof formula. I have created a number of looks using this and it never disappoints!
