Have any of you tried white eyeliner? It’s my new fave for spring right now.
It wasn’t long ago that I was searching for something new to do with my look. Confession: I did get the highlights, and some of you also encouraged me to try white eyeliner—and I love it!
My fear was that this would look weird, basically. And it does a little. But good weird. Like a little surprise, but a pleasant one. I’ve been really into white shoes as well, so I feel like these pops of white could be part of my current uniform. The older I get the more drawn I am to the idea of a uniform, anyone with me?
But back to the liner. Jane Iredale is my go-to when it comes to natural liners, so I was very excited to try their white. It did not disappoint. What brand of liner do you wear?
I’ve tried it a few ways:
1. Inside liner. I don’t know that lining the inside of one’s eye is ever really the best idea, natural or not, but I still do it on occasion. This is a fun daytime look, as opposed to the inside black line which always screams night out. In this pic it’s done a bit more extreme than I do it, but a lighter touch is almost imperceptible while still looking fresh.
2. Cat eye line. This is a fun, modern take on this back-in-vogue style. Again, what I really like about going white here is that it’s great for day (though nice at night too, because the white really jumps when it catches the light). I wear mascara when I do this, otherwise it can get a little washed out.
3. Lid shadow. This one is probably the easiest to pull off. I’ve tried just using the liner on my lid and then smudging it a bit so that it’s a matte, blended white. But I’ve also mixed it with RMS luminizer which looks more like this pic. Highly recommend!
