My favorite thing to do with my makeup right now is line my lower lash line in jewel-toned eyeliner. A bright sky-blue, or a sparkling purple — so gorgeous! They really make my light brown eyes pop.
I’m the sort of girl who only rocks one or two makeup looks on a regular basis. Crazy makeup is fun too, and I do go nutty with it on my more wild nights, but it’s just not practical for me on a regular basis so I always return to two very basic neutral looks in the same colors. If you’re the sort of girl who also only does simple eyeliner and neutral eyeshadow, consider jewel-toned eyeliner to mix up your routine! It’s a great way to make your look “pop” and it’s so simple and easy to apply.
This is Sephora’s 12 HR Wear Waterproof Jumbo Liner in Purple Matte. It’s $12 a stick, and it’s such a bright, vivid purple that really lasts all day! I tried the other shades of purple in the store (violet, lavender, etc), but none of them measured up to the vibrancy of this liner.
Sephora’s jumbo liners are some of my favorite products on the planet! Turquoise, Gold, and Beige are my other go-tos. I’ve worn these jumbo liners during day-long shopping trips, during nights out partying and dancing and sweating and drinking with friends, and during road trips to go wine-tasting, and they’ve always pulled through (I’m talking ZERO touching up needed). They glide on like butter, and because it’s such a wide pencil, it doesn’t feel like I’m stabbing myself in the eye when I run it along my waterline (easy application? Yes please). They don’t feel like “cheap” products at all. I’m in loooove!
But don’t just use these for liner …
Use them as an eyeshadow base!
Because the formula for this eyeliner is waterproof, they make an awesome primer for topping with similar eyeshadows and helping your makeup stand out! Guh. I can’t say enough good things about these magic makeup sticks. I wish I owned the whole collection! If you run out and get one for yourself, don’t forget to pick up a jumbo eyeliner sharpener as well. I have a super cute pink one from Sephora that has dual-action holes (that sounds dirty) — one for a regular sized eyeliner, and a hole for larger liners.
