A Lovely You – Makeup Tips for Every Woman

Archive for the ‘Eyeliner’ Category

One of the hottest trends for spring seems to be navy eyeliner. Less harsh than black, navy eyeliner can make a smokey eye really stand out. A few to try:

1. Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Navy, $4.99, Target
2. Tarte EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner in Navy, $18, Sephora
3. L’Oreal HIP Studio Secrets Professional Eye Liner Pencil in Navy, $8.49, Drugstore.com

Fortunately, navy works well with pretty much every skin tone – so any woman call pull this look off. Even though navy can look softer than black, take care to keep the rest of your makeup neutral to avoid clashing (especially if you are doing a smokey eye.) You can have a lot of fun playing around with navy eyeliner, either wearing it alone or combining it with other colors for an eye-popping look. Normally, I stick with black liner – but this season, I think I’ll be trying navy to switch things up a bit. What about you?


Pastels are always hot for spring, but this year makeup artists are taking it one step further and creating beautifully unique eye looks with pastel liner.

I’ve always thought colorful eyeliner is a huge beauty must, but now I’m even more convinced and will definitely be rocking the pastel eyeliner come spring. I think it’s a wonderfully fresh approach to traditional eye makeup, and you need just a little bit to truly make your eyes pop. Alternatively, you can dip a liner brush in just a tiny dab of water and use a pastel eyeshadow to line your eyes for a more dramatic impact.

A few to try:

Pencil Me In Pastel Shades Eyeliner Set, $38, cosmeticmall.com

Barry M Pastel Turquoise Eyeliner, £2.99, ferobeauty.com

POP Beauty Pastel Eye Shadow Palette, $22, CVS.com

What do you think? Yay or nay on pastel eyeliner?
