New Eyeliner Trend

Incredibly bold and bright eyeliner is what's in, and its an easy look to create!

My favorite look is a navy blue or bright blue liner with a very simple shadow.  Shades of blue make eyes appear whiter and brighter, which adds to this great look!

Sephora tutorials has the best lesson:

Perhaps my favorite item they recommend using is the "californian blonde" eyeshadow - which is a very neutral shade that doesn't detract from the color and look of the bold liner!

they also recommend Sephora-brand products, which are great, but I've found the following intense eyeliners to be better as far as ease of use and how they wear:

Make Up For Ever's Aqua Liner, $23 (Sephora)

there are many different shades, and this product wears through the day so well!  (and is water proof!)

I also like Urban Decay's 24/7 liner, which is also waterproof ($18 at Sephora and Ulta)

use these products lightly, you can add intensity as you go (but can't take it away)

I also like to create a 'triangle' shape at the corners and fill it in, rather than try to thicken the line in one sweep.

Another tip:  for liquid liners, don't pull at the corners of your eyes (to flatten out lash line) while applying.  This works fine with a pencil, but with a liquid it makes the application blotchy.

And with a bold eyeliner, such as the bright blue, go with natural pink and peach shades on lips.

Work this new trend with confidence, it's all the rage!
