HOW TO ROCK COLORED EYELINER ON YOUR LOWER LASH LINE
Who says colored eyeliner has to be confined to your upper lash line? There’s no better time to take a makeup risk! So, go ahead and add some pizzazz to your lower lash line. Here’s how to get the look.
Step 1: Start with primer. Dab a little bit of primer to the area before putting on your eyeliner to help prevent smudging.
Step 2: Apply your eyeliner. With so many color options, how are you supposed to know which one will look the most flattering on you? Well, if you pick an eyeliner shade that complements your eye color, that can make all the difference. If you have brown eyes, try using a green eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Wild Green. If you have green eyes, accentuate your gorgeous color with an underline of purple eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Pure Purple. If you have blue eyes, go for gold with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Gold. Whatever color you choose, just blend it into your lower lash line and voila!
