Cure beauty boredom with blue liquid liner
Both liquid and gel liners are wonderful inventions. They help add a certain intensity to eye make-up that a pencil liner just can’t achieve. Plus, winged liner anyone?
But sometimes your standard black liquid or gel liner is just a tad boring. And safe. Which is why I decided day two of my blue eye make-up challenge had to be dedicated to exploring the benefits of a coloured liquid liner.
The Blinc Cosmetics Liquid Liner in Blue was just as easy (or hard, depending on your experience) to apply as any other liquid liner but has the whole colour thing going for it. The shade is blue enough to add the subtlest hint of colour without looking childish or unprofessional making it a win for any workplace. It also gave my top lash line that extra intensity. The only drawback? Sometimes I actually wanted to be able to spot the blue from the distance.
Here’s how you can add that splash of blue to your eye look, too:
1) Using your liquid or gel liner, draw a line right where your top lashes meet your eyelid. Make sure the line is thinnest at the inner corner and gradually thickens out as you head towards your outer corner.
2) Fill in any gaps between the line and your lash line.
3) Feel free to add a flick or a wing for some extra pizzazz.
4) Coat your lashes with two or three coats of mascara to given them some length and definition.
5) Finish off with either a slick of gloss on your lips a rose-coloured lipstick.
