The most common eyeliners used are black and brown, but why stick to the known. Isn’t it time to venture into the unknown with the advent of new year. Many people regard using colored eyeliner as distasteful. If you follow the tips below you will be able to rock this look.
Selecting darker color eyeliner is best this way it doesn’t contrast too much with your look and has a more natural look. Selecting a similar but darker shade of mascara will help you stay away from an overdone look.
Keep it Simple
When using color eyeliner, don’t overdo the rest of your look. Wear a simple hair style, simmered down clothes, and simple make up. It will not only make you look more tasteful, but it will make your colored eyeliner stand out in a chic manner. Going all out will make you look tackier and less adult.
Compliment your Eye Color
Simply choosing a random color, or using the same color as your eye won’t cut it. You need to choose color complements when picking color eyeliner for the best results. If you have green eyes, go for purple or maroon to make your eyes stand out. Purple and rose eyeliner can work for hazel eyes as well, bringing out heir green. Choose a coppery shade to make your blue eyes dazzle. Have brown eyes? No problem. Try dark olive green to complete the look.
Choice of Eye shadow
Going for light washes of eye shadow instead of dark and overdone tones will help you best. Use natural nude shades will work best. If you opt for colored, make the design as simple as possible.
