EZ Beauty: Send Your Black Eyeliner On Holiday

This image is no longer available

Black eyeliner is the little black dress of makeup–it works for any occasion and will never fade from use or popularity. However,  you may find it looks a bit harsh during the summer months, and when rimmed around the entire eye it can make the windows into your soul appear much smaller (this is only good for guarding your innermost thoughts from a new suitor).

Buxom Hold the Line Waterproof Eyeliner in Door’s Unlocked (metallic purple), Pick Me Up (sparkling denim blue), and Ring My Bell (emerald green), $20 each, sephora.ca

For an everyday switch-up, trace very close to your top lash line in a plummy purple, dark green, or navy blue. It’s hardly a walk on the wild side as the colours are deep enough to be somewhat inconspicuous and still lend an unexpected playfulness to your face.

For evening, muster up a little more courage and apply a thin line of liquid metallic grey. This is a safe way to ease out of the darkness—if only until the next day.
