scared of black eyeliner?

If someone says black eyeliner, do you immediately think THIS:

Ahhh!  It doesn't have to be like that, but i get it, bold black liner can be intimidating for a lot of people.  well, break out of the mindset that black eyeliner is all there is....and try


That's right!  You can go with a more natural look that works with most shadows, without making you feel like you've overdone it, especially if you work in a more casual environment and bold makeup just doesn't work!


My favorite plum liners are Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in '1999' (ironically, the year I graduated High School!)

Its fool proof because it can be layered to get a more dramatic look, but just a swipe of it adds definition that works on everyone!

For the liquid liner lover, I am really into Sephora brand liquid liner in "Black Purple" (even better, its only $12!)
SEPHORA COLLECTION - Long-Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner


best for blue and brown eyes, olive is actually brightening!

For pencil users, check out Tarte's thick liner with a built in smudger to give yourself the perfect level of definition (or lack thereof)
Tarte - SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner
($25 at Sephora)

For those of you regularly use liquid liners, or are looking to try your first one, I am really loving my Eyeko Olive Liquid Liner

it has one of the best applicators out there, that applies with the lightest of touches and it LASTS ALL DAY!!!!  (read: great for beginners)
and the fact that its a softer color means that a tiny shake of the hand isn't going to make you look like a hot mess!!
NEW! at Sephora (retails at $15)

I highly recommend that beauty novices try these shades!
