I’ve decided to create a new segment, Out-of-the-Rut, which displays interesting or unusual ways to wear makeup – but its mostly so that I don’t get stuck in the same look all the time. 🙂
Anyhowsies, today’s look involves rocking a blue winged liner on the top lash line.
This is a subtle way to wear color on the lids without being too overwhelming, but it still grabs attention since it deviates a bit from the normal black or brown liner.
For this look, I decided to keep the rest of the face neutral so that the liner becomes the main feature and isn’t competing with other colors. On the lids, I am wearing MAC’s Woodwinked and Texture and on the lips, MAC’sCraving.
The ‘liner’ I used for this look was Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Blue On By and I applied with a Sonia Kashuk bent liner brush. I chose to keep the line fairly thin to keep within the bounds of “work-appropriateness” but feel free to make it as thick as you dare.
If this is still a bit too much for your comfort level, you could easily apply the liner to the upper lash line without creating the wing. Its subtle and brightens the whites of the eye.
What do you think about Colored Winged Liner?
