Be bold; use colours
There are a vast number of eyeliner colours in today’s market. There are many shades of black, brown, blue, green, red, white, purple, etc. Although it is fun, exciting, and experimental to use various colours and try new looks, some colours will not suit our skin colours and the occasions we are attending. But, depending on the occasion, be bold and chose the colour your heart desires. You can use more than one colour to elaborate your eyeliner makeup. Some latest trendy colours are white, neon yellow, bright pink, and electric blue.
Experiment with shapes
There are many styles in which you can draw your eyeliner. You can paint your top eyelid or your bottom eyelid or even both. You can also try many colours together to get your desired shape.
Use eyeshadow as eyeliner
You can use eye shadow as eyeliner. You can use a thin black liner to outline the eyeliner and then use your desired eye shadow to enhance the liner. Or, you can directly use eye shadow only.
Keep your focus on your eyes
If you are highlighting your eyes with various colours and styles, do not overdo your lips and face contour. This will make you look gaudy and overly dramatic.
Try to match your eyeliner colour with your outfit
If you are experimenting with eyeliner colours, try to match them or keep synchronizing with your outfit and accessories.
Match the occasion
If you are attending a formal meeting, event, or education event, do not opt for dramatic eye makeup. Keep it minimal. The best place to experiment and be playful and bold with eyeliner is a glamour event, concerts, parties, or dinners. Make sure you use quality products that are not harmful to your skin. Also, make sure to clean your eyes properly by removing makeup before sleep.
