Brighten Your Eyes with Colorful Eyeliner

January 4, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Did you make any resolutions for 2011? This year I've decided to be more adventurous with my makeup. Not to wear more necessarily, but just to try new things. My first step outside my every day routine: colorful eyeliner.




I recently discovered a dark green eyeliner that made my brown eyes brighter-even on my dullest of days. Then I started experimenting with navy blue and a cooper as well. I found that having a palette to choose forced me to experiment with colors I wouldn't have normally been attracted to individually at the makeup counter. Give it a try and let me know what you think!


Here are three brands that have my favorite range of playful shades:


If your on a budget, try theBalm mini-pencil set. This kit comes in three vibrant colors (blue, green, and purple) and also includes a sharpener. They're even tiny enough to stick in your purse for easy touch-ups.


PIckUp The Balm

To buy: $19,


If you like cream liners, try Smashbox's cream liner palette. Whether your looking for a shimmery gold liner or a bright teal, these shades will compliment eyes from the brightest of blue to the deepest of brown. 

SmashboxEyeliner To Buy: $32,

If you like creamy pencils, these Korres sticks will help you discover your inner make up artist. Natural and good for your lids (Vitamin E infused), you're going to wish this kit was not limited edition.

Korres To Buy: $32,


What eye liner colors have you tried that look best with your eye colors? Did you like the creamy liners better than a pencil or liquid liners? Let me know what you look for when shopping or trying new shades!
