One of the easiest ways to change up your eye makeup is to add a pop of colour to an everyday neutral look. It's an easy way to draw attention to the eyes and for me, it really seems to bring out the light brown colour. Wearing colours that are opposite of brown on the "colour wheel" (i.e. blues, teals, purples & greens) provides a nice contrast to the eyes and also makes the whites of your eyes look brighter. I've recently been loving these waterproof eye liners by Stila (in the colour Periwinkle!) These are great eye liners for the warmer weather since they withstand the heat and are long-wearing. Best of all, the shade below adds the perfect pop of colour to my otherwise boring, neutral makeup look without being "over the top".
The Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner by Stila is a color-rich, vibrant, easy to use liner with staying power. I hate when eye liners and mascaras smear and smudge. It's actually one of the reasons I prefer gel or liquid liner. But this highly pigmented eye liner glides on smooth and stays on! What a pleasant surprise for a pencil liner! This product comes in 8-9 other shades but if you like the colour pictured below, you better act fast, since it is limited edition.
Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is another waterproof formula that stays put all day and night! It glides on easily and dries quickly with no feathering, smudging or running. This liner has a thin marker-like tip that is super easy to use making this great for any beauty beginner. This product comes in 6 shade options that are pretty standard for an eye liner (i.e. black, brown, green, charcoal, etc) but like the liner above, the shade below is available only for a limited time.
