We know, wearing a bright color on your eyes seems like a bold move, but there’s a reason why colored eyeliners are fast gaining popularity. Here’s why you should give it a try.
First, in much the same way that your go-to black or brown eyeliner helps define your peepers, the colored versions open your eyes in the same way with the added bonus of making them appear vibrant. Second, drawing on liner always has a graphic impact on your makeup look, but a soft hue like white or teal gives you the desired effect without looking severe. Last and most importantly, colored eyeliners bring the fun that eyeshadows can give with a much easier application method.
Feel like you’re ready to give them a whirl, even if it’s just in the confines of your bedroom? Try one, or all, of these four pretty and easy ways to wear it.
