Is Blue Eyeliner Tacky!?

Is Blue Eyeliner Tacky!?

Blue eyeliner gets a bad wrap. I guarantee you, you can wear blue eyeliner and not look tacky.  It all comes down to how you’re wearing it.  The simplest and easiest way to wear blue eyeliner is with a simple and clean eye look, and pick a blue that’s deep enough that it still defines your eyes.  That’s what an eyeliner in general is supposed to do, a blue can not only define but really pop on any color of eye/skintone.  I found the perfect blue eyeliner in the Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Pen in Sapphire Blue.  It defines and pops and wears beautifully.  I can get a precise line, wing it out if I want to and now get a great deep blue color.  You can read my full review here.

Holiday Makeup: Sparkly Gold Eyeliner and Red Lips

Holiday Makeup Look with mark. and Avon

Holiday Makeup Look with mark. and Avon

Christmas season = red lip season!  Holiday makeup doesn’t have to be super involved to be festive, a little twist on the classic cat eye and a red lip are all you need!

Holiday Makeup: Gold and Black Cat Eye and Red Lip

Holiday Makeup: Gold and Black Cat Eye and Red Lip

For this quick and easy holiday makeup look I started with Avon Extra Lasting Concealer, because lets be real, we need to cover the dark circles and it needs to last all day.

For contour/blush I used the contour brush from the mark. Clutch Situation 5 piece Brush Set (that sequin clutch in the picture!  Talk about a multi-tasker!).  The contour brush is THE perfect brush, I’ve been needing it in my life.  Used with the Avon Pro Bronzer I was able to warm up my face a bit.

On the eyes I used the shimmering white shade from the mark. Dream Sequins Eye Pallet.  I used the eyeshadow brush from the mark. Clutch Situation Set just all over the lid.

I then lined the eyes first using Avon Super Extend Precision Liquid Eye Liner in black.  The thin felt tip is perfect to create a really nice sharp line.  I then followed up with the mark. On The Edge Hookup Liquid Liner in Gilt Trip, a metallic gold.  It’s hard to tell in the pictures (taking a good pic of your makeup is hard, let me tell you!), but I drew the gold line starting half way across the lid out past the outer corner past the cat eye flick I already drew with the black.  I then used it along the bottom lashes from tear duct to about half way across the eye.  This gave just the right amount of dimension and glam.

I finished off the eyes with Avon Big and False Mascara in Blackest Black.  Who has time to apply falsies, just use this mascara.  Look how long and full my lashes look, all the look of falsies with the ease of mascara!

Red Lips with Avon Matte Ruby

Finally, complete your festive holiday look with a red lip.  I’ve said it before I’ll say it again, I like a matte red lip.  A matte formula wears longer and isn’t so in your face.  I’m wearing Avon in Matte Ruby (on clearance) or use mark. Lip Click in Siren.  But first line and fill in your lips with Avon Glimmersticks Lip Liner for a really perfect lip that lasts!
