To line or not to line…?

There are so many options when it comes to eyeliners – some of them waterproof and meant for waterline, some are creamy and cut be smudged on the upper lash-line and I will sort out another category – the ones you use however you like, is it the benefit of make-up to use it the way you want?

I’ve picked up several option that I’m planning on rocking this fall/winter. There are some pretty much expected browns, some unusual purples and greys. Let’s dig in?Image

The first option is Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal in purple. I like to pair in with matt brown eyeshadow and smudging it a bit on the lower lash-line. This looks a bit edgy (the edgy-est that the daytime can handle) and green-eye girls can also use this to make their eye color pop.

Next on the menu is Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Pencil in Rockstar. This is a dark burgundy-purple shade, that in certain lights can look pretty dark. When I first tried UD pencils I fell in love. Seriously. If you don’t own one, please, I’m begging you, save up some money and pick one up. You won’t regret spending a penny. It’s waterproof, creamy-dreamy and stays put. Ideal. Sometimes I’m rocking the Rockstar on its own, just with a bit of mascara.

The follower is Lancome Le Crayon Khol in grey. When I was younger I was fond of lining my waterline with a dark color, but I never used black – always though (and still do) that it’s just to much – so I’m a muted dark color lover. You ca barely guess that it was a grey pencil I’ve used, but the eyes are completely different then with a black one. It’s hard to explain, just try it, okay? :)

Another waterproof version – the taupe brown Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye pencil in 19L. Pure matt pure simple. I use it with brown smoky eyes to define the lash line to make it look wider and fuller. It stay the whole day/night and does the jog great. No complains.

There is always room for blues. My pick is Sephora Nano Eyes Crayon in 18 (blue jean). Even the name makes me love this pencil. For an blue eyeliner I got a pretty good use of it – I’m left with 1/2 of it, I think. Rich blue shade with a micro shimmer that practically unnoticeable when applied. I like to dot it on my lower lash-line for a definition, gives the oomph to the eye. Liiiike that.

And of course with an odd to UD pencils I just couldn’t squeeze another one. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Pencil in Underground.  A metallic taupe shade. This is all-round winner for me. As a liner with a flick? Done. Lash-line definition? Done. Lower lash-line job? Done. Eye base for shadows? Done, done, done!

Do you have any recommendation for me? Are there any must-have shades from UD 24/7 I should give a go? Please comment below, I really like to talk to you.
