There’s no denying that spring has made its presence known, bringing with it a color palette of pastel hues. We couldn’t be happier about this new wave of cotton candy colors, as it means a nice, refreshing change to our beauty arsenal. We’re all about rocking the pinks, oranges and lavenders on our lips and nails, but what about our eyes? How does this pastel translate to our peepers? An easy way to work these spring-y shades into your eye makeup routine is through the magic of eyeliner. Check out these tips on how to wear pastel liner like a boss.
This is the stuff of Eye Makeup 101. If you want your eyeliner to stay put and stay vibrant, you must prime, prime, prime! Make sure to spread your primer on your entire lid and allow it to dry before reaching for the liner. Try an illuminating primer like Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Minor Sin to give your eyes a natural gleam.
Once you’ve got your eyes primed and your color picked, go crazy! Pastel liner is meant to be fun, so try to think outside the box a bit. Go for a winged look or line the entire eye for an intense, colorful look. You can also smudge the line a bit to give your eyes a smoky, blurred effect. If you’re really feeling wild, top off your color with a glittery liner (try Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner).
