Forget plastic surgery, did you know that you can create lift in your eyes using nothing but a little liquid liner? That’s right, it’s as simple as investing in a great liquid liner and a little bit of practice. At the moment I am beyond in love with the new Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Bold Defining 24-hour Liquid Eyeliner because it’s so easy to use (even for a clumsy newb like me) and there’s a wide range of stunning colours to choose from to create bold, jaw-droppingly beautiful eyes. If you’re all about mastering the art of creating the perfect cat eye then you’re going to fall in love with this incredible product and eventually want one in every colour. Of course, I’m not letting you go it alone, I’m also sharing an easy to follow tutorial, from Elizabeth Arden’s global makeup artist Rebecca Restrepo, so you can learn how to use this product like a pro!
This new liquid liner from Elizabeth Arden is by far one of my most favourite liquid liners of all time. The micro-fine applicator tip on this oh-so-smooth liquid eyeliner allows the product to glide on with ease, so creating the perfect cat eye is more achievable than ever before. And, when I say the applicator tip is fine I mean, super fine! With this product you will be able to create ultra-precise, calligraphy-like lines directly on the lash line with no fuss. I also love how quickly the formula dries on your eyes and the fact that it stays put! The formula is waterproof, smudge-proof, transfer-proof, and sweat-proof. I wore it in a Sweat1000 class (the things I do for research) and was amazed that it didn’t smudge through such an intense workout.
The range also includes some pretty bold colours including an electric blue, brown, mystic green, black, and plum desire. I personally love the black (because you have to have a classic black) and bold blue. Blue liner is super trendy at the moment so if you love to follow makeup trends then I’d suggest investing in a blue Elizabeth Arden liner (in addition to a black or brown version of course). The bold blue shade looks stunning when teamed with a simple bronze or pink blush and a nude lip and works wonders when creating a show-stopping look for brown eyed girls.
Still not one hundred percent confident to do it yourself? Elizabeth Arden’s global makeup artist, Rebecca Restrepo says with a few easy steps you can create a classic or dramatic line. “Start by tilting your head back and looking into the mirror at the angle of your nose. This gives you the perfect view of the lash line.” Follow her step-by-step guide below.
