Without eyeliner, I feel ghost-like, featureless, anaemic. Hahaha. Okie, not that serious, but eyeliner can make the eyes look larger, more soulful, and depending on the angle and intensity drawn, exudes sexiness/youth/innocence.
I wear black eyeliner almost 90% of the time, but sometimes black can be too harsh, other times black is just… you, know, flat. So when I’m in the mood for something fun, I’ll throw in a color or two!
What I did for this look was draw the first eyeliner layer with black, then top it off with Lancome Artliner 24H in Amethyst. This purple doesn’t behave too well on its own – it’s too diluted and not pigmented enough for my liking, but when laid atop a black eyeliner base, it’s really pretty! I used Shu Uemura Calligraph:ink here, in fact, I use this almost every day.
See that I concentrated the purple on the centre part of the eye, leaving the flick in opaque black to give dimension and differentiation.
