Graphic Eyeliner EOTD

Without Flash
With Flash
Everyday Minerals Countryside
Everyday Minerals Oasis

I was opting for something neutral this day but wanted to add some glamour to it and what better than a thick winged out liner to add a dash of oomph to the look. The focus of the look was to emphasise the liner and make it the centre of attraction.

It took a while thickening the eyeliner and getting the edges correct but I still did not manage to get the ends perfect :( I will definately do a better version of this in the future!

Besides that, the look is fairly simple and easy to do with only two eyeshadows used. I also kept the lower lashline bare as it gives a modern/runway-ish effect to it and I wanted to maintain focus on the upper lashline. I love how this gives a Marilyn Monroe effect.

This look would also look fabulous for a night out if topped up with some glitter on centre of the lid :)

Products Used:

- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow in Oasis all over the lid
- Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow in Countryside in the crease blended upwards
- Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack for the eyeliner
- Any matte black eyeshadow used to line over the gel eyeliner to darken it and create the 'graphic eyeliner' effect
- Kryolan pencil liner in dark brown used to fill in the brows

Let me know if you have any Everyday Mineral favourites? I would love to try.

p.s. EM eyeshadow in Countryside is stunning and has a silver/brown-orange duochrome to it. If you use it in the crease, there is not much blending needed as it creates a gradient automatically. Try a sample and you'll love it!

I have never tried Everyday Minerals, but those colors are so pretty, I might have to change that. It reminds me of the pretty bronzy colors that speak warm weather to me. Cant wait to do an eye like this in the summer with a tan. Very beautiful on you!
