PARTY MAKEUP INSPIRATION
I’m always trying to find new ways to make our makeup more exciting, without becoming silly or overkill. Because makeup is a creative expression of how you feel each day, or how you want to feel each day… sometimes I feel blah but then put on mascara and a bright pink lip and feel so much better! So the more you can step out of a rut and try new things, the more colorful your life will be. You’ve tried my , , and . Now try this fun variation! Think of it as underlining your wing. Here’s how:
- Your Favorite Liquid Liner: This is my and this is my . They’re both longwear, a must for liquid liners! (I also love that has both types of brush in the same liner!).
- Any Colored Eye Pencil: I chose because it covers my three must’s for pencils — 1. longwear so it doesn’t smudge, 2. intense color payoff and 3. easy and smooth gliding. I also really love in Jade.
- With the black liquid liner, start at the inner corner and trace along the lash line, pressing harder as you get closer to the outer corner because you’ll notice, the lighter you press, the thinner the line and the harder you press, the thicker the line. Then wing it out and up for a little cat eye.
- Now take the colored pencil and underline the wing. I did it by starting at the end of the lower lashline and working in both directions; first underlining the flick and extending it slightly past, then coming inward 1/4 of the distance of the lower lashline. You could just underline the wing and not bring it inward if you wanted too. Just play with it and have fun!
I paired it with and on Magali but you can change up the under flick shade then mix and match with your favorite blushes and lip colors!
