Makeup of the Day: Green and Purple Eyeliners

Sometimes in my spare time, or when I log into Instagram (which is every morning haha), I like to find photos of different makeup looks that inspire me to create future blogposts. This past few weeks I’ve observed that a lot of girls have been using colored eyeliners. Their makeup looked fun and using these type of eyeliners can add a pop of color to your whole look. So, for this week’s blogpost I decided to create two makeup looks using a green and a purple eyeliner. One of the main reasons I began Sunny Days was to share my journey, my experiences with you. I’m not a professional when it comes to cooking or doing my makeup haha, but I think that’s the fun in anything, the fun part is learning, and hopefully you can relate to me in that sense :) Well, enough of the rumbling, let’s begin!

First Look: Revlon Skinny Liquid Liner in Green Spark

For this first look, I wanted to do the traditional winged eyeliner and then sort of outline it with this green liquid liner. I can’t say it was easy for me because at the time I did my makeup my hands were shaky haha. Also, funny enough, while choosing which pictures to use for this post, I noticed that unintentionally I created a Christmasy makeup look haha, it has green, red and golden :P Anyways, I hope you like it!

  1. I started off by applying Dior’s Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup. I didn’t want a full coverage so I lightly applied only one coat, as I wanted to keep my skin as natural as I could. If you are going to be using this look for going out or for an event, I think it would look lovely with a strong foundation and some bronzing. By the way, I’m running out of foundation, which one would you recommend me?
  2. Next, using Pacifica’s Enlightening Eye Brightening Shadow Palette, I placed the Golden eyeshadow all over my eyelid. A thing I liked about these eyeshadows is that they are super pigmented. Also, this brand makes natural, sort of organic, makeup without, which is always good to know. 
  3. Using the same palette, I applied the light nude eyeshadow, Skinny Dip, for my crease. The reason why I used a neutral toned eyeshadow is because I wanted the eyeliner to really stand out, but you could modify this and use a darker brown eyeshadow to add depth to your eyes.
  4. After blending the eyeshadows, I used Maybelline’s Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner in the color black. This product is perfect if you don’t like using gel or pencil eyeliners. Because it’s in the shape of a pen, I think it’s easier to work with this rather than a gel eyeliner. 
  5. I waited for the black eyeliner to dry a bit and then continued to outline the winged eyeliner with Revlon’s Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Green Spark. I really liked the product’s green tone. It’s a medium toned green that has some shimmer to it. Also, it’s really pigmented. I didn’t have to apply two coats to get a uniform color, only one coat was enough. I really liked it!
  6. Finally, I used Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara to add some volume to my eyelashes. 
  7. To finish this look, I went for red glossy lips with Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic

Second Look: Lancome’s Artliner 24 hr in Amethyst

For the second look, I wanted to change a bit from the first one and only use the colored eyeliner. I have to credit my mom for donating her purple eyeliner for this blogpost haha. This look ended up been a look that contained different shades of purple haha, but I liked the results. I hope you like it too!

  1. Like the previous look, I started off using Dior’s Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup. I applied only one coat all over my face just to have a light coverage. 
  2. Next, I applied, to my eyelid, Coral Sand from the Pacifica’s Enlightening Eye Brightening Shadow Palette, which is a nice coral pink eyeshadow. 
  3. Using the same palette, I applied Urchin to my crease, which is a plum/purple eyeshadow. This darker color was great for adding depth to the eyes. I really liked how it looked with the purple eyeliner.
  4. To line my eyes, I used Lancome’s Artliner 24hr in Amethyst, which is a pastel purple. Lancome has some amazing makeup products of great quality. I really liked this eyeliner. It’s pigmented but I had to apply two coats because I felt that with only one coat, the eyeliner didn’t stood out so much.
  5. To finish my eyes, I applied Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara to add some volume to my eyelashes.
  6. Finally, continuing with the purple theme haha, I used Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Dazzling Plum.

I hope you enjoy these two looks! Let me know what you think in the comment section :) Will you be using colored eyeliners? Which colored eyeliner do you like?
