For this Makeup Wars we’re exploring the whimsical wonderment of Spring trends! For 2013, one of my favorite trends is ending your eye liner with symbols.
If you have a steady hand, I recommend using a liquid or gel liner, they just stay on skin so much better. A quick tip is to do slight dashes and make the shape of your symbol and then just trace. However, if you’re still getting the hang of it, pencils are certainly okay and definitely the way to go!
Above, I’ve used one of my favorites, a heart! Feel the love! I almost went with the infinity symbol, which I was thinking of getting tattooed on the underside of my wrist, infused with my kids names… what do you guys think?
To get this look, just start your liner at the very outer tip of the top lashes and create your shape. Bring down the liner and end underneath the lower lashes, leaving space for some shadow. The shadows used in this look are all from the Le Metier de Beaute Melange Palette charcoal black on the lid, silver right above the upper and right below the lower lashes, gold in the crease and blended up. The liners used are NARS Carpates & Atlantic and the mascara is MAC Plushlash.
A HUGE plus to this look is that it also hides signs of aging! Crows feet be gone!
You can also rock this trend on your lips at the outer corners of the mouth, but I can’t get the symbol to stay straight when I go to frowning vs smiling… any tips for perfecting that?
See what the other participants in this installment of Makeup Wars came up with! I’m really excited to see how the other bloggers favorite trends! What WILL we think of next?!
(APRIL FOOLS! Though, I do like that this hides crows feet, and that’s no joke lol)
