Violet Femmes: One Bold Eye Liner Move For New Year’s Eve Makeup

by Janine on 30 December 2013 · 6 comments

dramatic violet linerWhat do you think of this as a New Year’s Eve makeup idea? This kind of vivid, broad-stroke liner strikes me as the bold lip of eye makeup. It’s just as fast and as easy. No fussing with shaping the eye, or a variety of shades, or blah, blah, blah. Just a bit of primer followed by a bit of foundation and concealer as needed, lashings of mascara, a touch of blush, soft lip (balm, even). And in the same way that fuchsia is the playful version of the classic glam red lip, bright purple or violet is the playful version of black. Bonus: purple enhances every eye colour. Plus it comes in matte, shimmer and all-out shine to satisfy all our New Year’s Eve glitterati dreams.

Sister, please can you come to my house and draw that on my face? I already have really good purple liners. Please can you show me how?

Of course! But you can probably do it without my help. Start by creating an outline of the overall liner shape, then fill in!

Not sure, Quookie — it’s a backstage photo from a runway show; I found the image on Pinterest. I’ll update if I find out.

Ok, thx so much. It looks really similar to the Shisedo cream and the UD pencil so I’ll give those a try!
