Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are two ladies I love when it comes to colourful bold eyeshadows. I love bold eyeshadows….when done properly it adds life and interest to a simple makeup look and speaks volumes without you actually speaking. But then someone who refuses to be caught with vibrant shadow but still wants that colour and vibrancy will ask….“how do I take part in the fun without going all the way? “
The answer is simple; Colour eyeliners. A colourful eyeliner ranging from blue to violet can give a very neutral look an edge without committing to a full eyelid of colour.
Everyone from Kelly Rowland to Leona Lewis have been rocking this trend and you too can be a part of it.
Achieving this look is very easy, using any coloured eyeliner pencil, apply to the upper and lower lash line or waterline and smudge slightly with a smudge brush for more drama.
