Simple Makeup Look with Aqua Eyeliner

Some find it difficult to integrate a pop of colour with their everyday make up looks. This is a trick that i use. I create my everyday (brown) eyeshadow look and then add a pop of color to the lower lash line. Lately i have been matching my make up with the colour that stands out most in my outfit or accessories.

I generally where greys and browns with a single item such as shoes or earrings, or even a necklace, so it is not very difficult to see the colour that stands out from my outfit. Today, I was wearing black and white and my earrings were silver with a blue detail and so this tutorial just shows you how I incorporated my make up look into my outfit.




Here is how i got this look:

1. Prime the entire lid

2. Apply a very light shade of pink

3. Apply a taupe colour to the crease

4. Apply a darker taupe shade to the same area

5. Apply a dark brown shade to the same area as the 2 previous steps and just build this colour until you get your desired intensity.

6. Create a winged eyeliner.

7. Use a pencil brush to soften up the line of the winged eyeliner. this trick is useful if you can never get the perfect winged liner, you can just draw on the general shape and then blend it out – it will look flawless.

8. Apply an aqua shade eye pencil to the lower lash line.

9. Set that eye pencil with a shadow that is a similar shade

10. here is just fixed up my winged line a little bit.

11. Add mascara.

12. (which has no number on the pictorial) is your finished eye look.

13. Since this is an everyday look, I didn’t put any lipstick on, only some lipice.
