Blue Dual Liner

This look is in part inspired by the Dior Addict it-lash mascara advert. As someone that wears winged eyeliner everyday, I wanted to put a twist on this staple look and add a little colour to my makeup. By coincidence, I was also wearing Barry M Aquarium Nail Effects Paint in the shade Pacific which I think goes perfectly with this makeup look.

I began by wetting an angled liner brush and applying Orbit from the Sleek Ultra-Mattes V2 Palette along my lash line, creating a flick at the outer corner. As this is a dual liner look, I made this line thicker than I usually would. I then used the Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner in black to create another, thinner line over the top of this. I chose not extend the outer flick as far with the black liner as I did with the blue. I then applied mascara and,  in order to enhance the pop of colour, I lightly dusted Barry M Dazzle Dust in the shade Kingfisher over my lashes whilst my mascara was still wet. If you want a more wearable every-day look, you may prefer to skip this step.

Products Used:
Sleek UltraMattes V2 Palette
Collection Supersize Fat Lash Mascara
Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner in Black

  3. Love the use of color - I always wing mine too and am pretty conservative with my makeup. Would love to see this with full face/outfit!

    Warm Regards,

  4. Wow, this look is stunning! Love the finishing touch of the Barry M dust! :)

  6. I'm still learning cat eye. Quite a challenge for me... I think I'm getting better though :)

    1. Aha, I've been doing it on a daily basis for a few years and, although I have the technique down, take a million years to do it, in part because I'm a perfectionist. Someone suggested I make a YouTube video on how I do my winged eye liner but it would be one hell of a long video XD

  7. It looks amazing with your eye colour! I've been using a purple liner as purple goes well with brown eyes :)

    Love Zoe x

  14. This is such a cool look! I'm definitely going to have to try this out tomorrow. I've been looking to add more colour to my eye makeup so this will be perfect :)

  15. I'm not one for crazy eye looks, but I think this looks lovely on you x

  16. Love this look! The eye and nail combo is perfect :) xx

  17. I absolutely love this. It gives a nice pop of color without being too over the top. I'm such a perfectionist that I never have time to do winged liner everyday (it takes me too long because they have to be as close to matching as possible), but I would definitely give this a try.
