Continuing with my pattern of buying all things blue, don’t ask me why, I picked up a Milani Easy liner in Blue Eye. I must have really been feeling the blue while I was in Chicago but at least it’s a little different to the countless navy eye liners I possess. This one is a little brighter.
It’s one of those twistable liners, which I usually hate as I always break them. But this liner came recommended from a friend. It also only cost me $1.50, an absolute bargain.
Here’s a little swatch (taken in natural light, no flash)
I have worn this quite a few times since I picked it up in December and have also received a few compliments on it. I think the reason for that is that this liner looks a little different than the usual.
It’s a creamy royal blue without shimmer or sparkle. It’s very easy to apply and blending is a doddle.My only concern is that I will probably manage to break it some how, I always find a way.
My favourite way to wear this liner is to pair it with a nude shadow. I’m not a fan of bare lids as they often look discoloured. Even on days where I don’t feel like wearing eye shadow I still will. I just opt for a matte bone shade which makes me looked a little more polished. It also opens the eyes a little. It looks really pretty under the eye too, á la Stephanie Pratt. If I opt for a more striking liner shade I usually keep the rest of my make-up very neutral and let the liner speak for itself.
How do you feel about coloured eye liner?
