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.

How to:

1) Apply one (thin) coat of mascara

2) Sweep a purple-based mid-tone over the lid and just a bit above the crease.

3) Apply a darker purple-based shade at the inner and outer corners of your lid.

4) Accentuate the outer corner and crease even more with a deeper purple and blend well

5) Dab a shimmery light purple shade onto the ball of your eyelid for “volume”

6) Line the upper lashline with black pen eyeliner, pulling it to a slight flick

7) Line bottom lashes with dark purple shadow and blend

8) Apply a thick coat of mascara and comb/separate after dry

9) Set eyeliner with black shadow

 

( By the way, I’m sorry the lighting is depressing in these photos! I’ll find better light next time. It makes my skin look pale and brings out my silly freckles. :P)

This look would be great for a date, night out with friends, or a party.
