Black&Yellow Liner

Yellow eyeliner! Who would’ve thought? My first thought was “Yellow liner? Ew no. Just no.”  But years ago I saw an Avon add with yellow and black eyeliner. I remember thinking it was so original and artsy, and actually really liked it! I couldn’t wait to try it from then on. Today, I finally did a post on it!

It sounds like something you can’t just wear out. But it’s really no more ‘stand-out’ than white or silver, and definitely no more than blue or purple. In fact, people have to look twice to realize it’s a wacky color! I think it’s a very nice color accent to brighten a look, and goes well with a black or grey outfit, neutral lips, and peachy blush.

Product(s):

– Yves Rocher Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Jaune Citron

– Maybelline Master Precise liquid liner in “Black”

– Maybelline The Colossal Smokey Eyes Volum’ Express mascara

– Lipsticks: L’Oreal Paris 802 “Captivating Copper” & Rimmel London 022 “Nostalgia” (Blended on top of each other)

Pink pink pink!

I have to say, recently I’m loving the color pink. Fine timing, eh? I mean, with Valentine’s Day coming up and all…..

So here’s a very pink look you can try this year! A black, gray, or white sweater with a matching pink scarf would go nicely with this look.

The Ocean’s Calling Me…

So I like snow. I like it up till mid January. Then it’s over. I’m done. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to summer time, the blue water on the white sand, the white clouds against the blue sky. The leaves on the trees…. yeah, I guess I’ve made my point.

So here’s a makeup look that reminds me of the blue ocean and yet is a suitable winter party look:

IMG_2703

Turquoise on the lid and bottom lashline…

IMG_2699

Deep purple-based blue in the crease…

IMG_2702

Black liquid liner and mascara…

IMG_2700

Pink lipbalm and blush and you’re set.

It’s that simple.

My eyes nearly always look brown, but these blues brought out the green in there! I’m always afraid to go bold with eyeshadow, but when I do, I love it.
