Hi Friends, Makeup Artist Katie here...

If you own a makeup bag, then I’m guessing that somewhere in there there’s a black or brown eyeliner? 🤔

Black and brown are versatile colours that look great on everyone. I know it’s a staple in my personal and professional makeup kit.

Reinvigorate your eye makeup look!

But what if I told you that one of the quickest and easiest ways for your eyes to truly sparkle, was to wear a coloured eyeliner? ⚡️

Coloured eyeliner suits everyone and It's a super-easy way to make your eyes dazzle ✨

What's more, coloured eyeliner is a great place to start if you’ve become a little bored of your eye makeup recently - it's a quick and easy way to add a hint of colour to your every-day makeup...

...without feeling like you've gone too far out of your usual makeup comfort zone🙌

My favourite eyeliners are these Eye of Horus Goddess Liners!

The best eyeliner for your eyes!

As a makeup artist, one of the questions I get asked the most is:

“What eyeliner colour would suit me best”?

Remember – there are no rules when it comes to choosing the right colour for you 💖

Everybody can wear every shade, but if you want to intensify your natural eye colour then certain shades will work better than others at emphasising your natural eye colour! 

Brown eyes...

How to enhance brown eyes

Wearing a simple brown shade will help make your natural eye colour look richer. While contrasting colours will make them look even more striking 🥰

Eyeliners in colours such as midnight blue, cobalt, vivid purple, emerald green, grey and cool charcoal will bring out the lighter brown and golden flecks in your eyes 💕

If you’re unsure about these bolder colours, try lining your eyes with a black or brown liner first of all and then layer over the top a bolder colour choice - this will tone down the bolder colour just a little, whilst still building your colour confidence! 🤩

Try stepping outside your comfort zone by creating the same definition as a black eyeliner but in a softer way with a navy-blue pencil for a stunning look!

Wear navy when you want your blue eyes to appear a deeper shade and emerald green when you want to accentuate hidden golden flecks in them! 😍

Blue eyes pop when lined with contrasting rich, warm colours., such as brown, terracotta, champagne, bronze, gold and copper and will make blue eyes appear even brighter! 💫

Experiment with warm metallic tones to pick up on gold flashes and light up your eyes.
