Summer has sprung and the stores are filled to the brim with entirely too many fashion choices that we just can’t resist! The time has finally come to add some FLAVA into our wardrobes and I, myself, couldn’t be more excited! Now, when I say “wardrobe” I don’t just mean your clothing! It is equally as important to update your makeup wardrobe for the new season to reflect the most recent trends as well! I’m here to share with you one of the the quickest beauty hacks that will add some fierce color into your life and change up your look with 1 simple product: EYELINER!
Throughout my years as a professional makeup artist, I’ve come to learn that most people are extremely afraid of color. We can thank MiMi from the Drew Carey show for that! I find that most women are under the impression that they cannot add bold shades to their makeup wardrobes because they are “too old,” or the trend is not “work appropriate,” or that they’ll look like a prostitute walking the streets of NY. Well, listen up! I’m here to tell you, NO you are not too old, YES you can wear this to work, and NO you will not look like an extra from Pretty Woman! Here are a few examples of ways you can add a pop of color to your look without going overboard, or more importantly, making you feel uncomfortable!
Here’s a look for the newbies that are ready to test the waters! This makeup look is quite simple, however, the colored liner on her lower lash line adds a serious POP! This is a very minimal look and only takes about 2 eyeshadows in addition to the eyeliner to achieve! These Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencils are perfect to create this look!
This gorgeous look is for the gal that’s not afraid to rock some sparkle! Using a small amount of eyeshadow and regular black eyeliner is quite boring until you pop some glittery liquid magic on top! Try using these NYX Liquid Crystal Liners on top of your every day black liner for a cute and sassy look! These come in so many shades that it’ll be hard for you to chose your fave!
This look is so quick and easy! Leaving your lids as a bare canvas for the liner to pop against will cut your application time down tremendously! Inglot AMC Gel eyeliners are perfect to achieve this look with. They are super creamy and with the help of an angled brush, you are sure to get that perfect colorful wing for Spring!
I hope this beauty hack will help you to find your way in the land of color this Spring/Summer! I would love to see your recreations of these looks so make sure to link any photos you post, in the comment section! Stay FIERCE my friends!!!
