My Favourite Eyeliner Combos

The other day when I was playing around with combining different shades of lipstick, it hit me that the fun doesn’t have to stop there. Next thing I knew I had spent my entire Sunday afternoon with my eyeliner collection and makeup remover. Here are a few fun looks that I came up with.

Les eyeliner-18

The duo: Nyx Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Fire with Quo Art of Lining in Black
I lined my top lash line with Vivid Fire starting at the inner corner and working my way to the outer corner. I then created an outer winged line with the black liner and slowly worked my way inwards towards Vivid Fire. Lastly, I blended the black liner into Vivid Fire.

The duo: Quo Eye Dare You Liquid Liner in Emerald with Gosh Liquid Liner Pen in Brown
Starting with a thin line of Emerald, I worked my way from my inner lash line to my outer lash line. As I moved outwards I created a thicker line and winged the liner upwards towards my brow just before I reached the outer corner of my eye. I then drew a very thin line of Brown along my lash line, allowing the Emerald to show above. As I reached the very outer corner of my lash line I winged the liner upwards mimicking the Emerald line.

The duo: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Damsel and Deep Burgundy
I kept this look quick and simple. I first blended Damsel along my top lash line. To bring out my eye colour, I blended Deep Burgundy along my bottom lash line. Lastly, I applied Deep Burgundy to the outer corner of my waterline.

Les eyeliner-1

The duo: Nyx Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Petal with Quo Art of Lining in Black
I applied a thick line of Vivid Petal along my top lash line so that the colour would be visible after applying the black liner. At my outer lash line, I created a flicked wing upwards for a little cat eye effect. I then drew a thin line in black right along my top lash line, making sure not to hide any vivid petal. I then mimicked the Vivid Petal flicked wing effect.

Now you know what my Sunday afternoons consist of! I totally recommend trying out your own eyeliner combos and sharing your ideas—can’t wait to hear what you come up with!
