Runway to Real Life: Coloured Eyeliner

by Madeleine Borgersen

I received a few comments on instagram about my purple coloured eyeliner look last week which inspired me to do a quick how-to!

Runway to Real Life: Coloured Eyeliner

We’ve been seeing coloured liner on the runway for some time now and I for one absolutely love it! Saying that – it can be a bit of a bold statement to pull off for an everyday look so here’s some tips to play this look down to a real life version!

  • Pick a soft eye kohl in any shade you want. I love the stila collection as theyre super easy to apply and don’t tug at your eyelid. I went with the matte medium purple as I have green eyes and wanted to make them pop!
  • Instead of going all the way across your lash line only do the outer half, this makes it a lot more subtle and also opens the eyes up more when using such a bold colour.
  • Line the lashline and slowly build up a slant with the thicker end of the liner being on the outer edge of the eye.
  • Team it with a coloured mascara to emphasise the look, again focus it more-so on the outer corner of the eye and only on the top lid to keep it subtle.
  • Keep the rest of the face pretty natural. You can rock a purple eyeliner but not teamed with a hot pink blush and bright red lip.

    Ooh you are so brave. I’m not sure I’d have the nerve to use a coloured liner but it looks great on you!
